Happy Cyber Monday Shopping!
Hey Everyone! Today I want to show you a 3 minute edit using the Harvest Collection. First I ran "Moody Edit", and turned all of the layers off. One by one, I brought them back and adjusted the opacity as needed.
Next, I used "Evening Shift", and finished with Pumpkin Boost (brushed off 30% over the flowers).
Moody Edit gives the final image a nice velvety matte finish with rich browns and deep colors.
These Actions are part of the Harvest Collection of Photoshop Actions we offer each fall. This is a mini-set of Actions, offered at a great price. They are tailored especially for the fall season and all of the beautiful colors and textures we see each year. If you haven't checked them out you can find them on this page. They will only be available until December 6th!
For more before and after's of our Fall Photoshop Actions, see yesterday's post or visit the Harvest Collection page.

I rarely get truly negative customer service trouble tickets, because you all are so awesome, but recently I had one. In one comment the customer said that (because they were having trouble with the link) they weren't sure if they had made a "bad internet purchase". At first, I was totally offended and really upset, after all, I have dedicated the last 5 years of my life building and running Magic And Light Collection. Then, I thought some more. In the first years of this company, I posted A LOT of my own work. A lot about my daughter and my dogs and our life. In recent years, I have let the personal side of MLC slide. I think this is why some might get the impression that there isn't anyone busting their butt behind the curtain.
Here I am y'all. I'm busting my butt. I care about every single customer. I care about every single problem. I answer emails and tickets as soon as I receive them, and I am ALWAYS here to help.
Going forward, I am going to share more of myself and my personal photography. I never want anyone to think that I am absent from this or that they sent their money out into the internet, never to get something in return.
With all of that said...check out my sweet 15 year old Cocker Spaniel, Copper! My baby boy!
He is attached to my three year old, they are best friends. She was in the pool swimming with her Dad and it was pretty hot outside (try 125°). Copper doesn't enjoy the hot weather anymore but he still needs to keep an eye on his baby. This is him, literally on the edge of his seat, waiting for anything to happen that might require his immediate attention.
I noticed the amazing backlighting and knew I had to run and grab my camera. Backlighting is everything to me these days. I can't tell you what Actions I used on this image because it was a month or so ago.
That's a little glimpse into what I am shooting these days. I still dream of being at National Geographic photographer, but for now family life will do.
I'm here y'all, working hard for MLC- whatever you need, I'm here to help.
