I spent some time finding and trying a few Photoshop actions yesterday and this morning. I didn’t tweak much past the actions, but found a few that I liked anyway. Below are a couple that I played with….. In general, do you prefer B&W or color? Does it depend on the picture or not really? Just curious. Two of the images below I have in both color and B&W. I really like the simplicity and crispness of this particular B&W action–and yet there are details that are lost from the color photos. I’m curious which you prefer. In highschool and college when I was doing a lot of photography and darkroom work, I wasn’t very interested in color. Now, I feel like it depends on the image. The last photo is a different B&W action and thrown in just because I liked it.
Now, completely unrelated. Nick turned 30 yesterday. We met friends at the bar early evening for food, beers and some pool. It was a lot of fun and it was great how nearly everyone was able to make it on short notice. And with babies. Did I mention that we had about six kids under 3 with us? Yea, a bit strange, but not bad. In all honesty, I didn’t expect it to be as busy as it was. Thank god there is no smoking until 10pm–our little ones were all home and fast asleep long before then. I think Nick enjoyed the night out with our friends again. Happy birthday, love!
