Flightless Bird and My Biggest Editing Secret

This evening, while cooking with my mother, our dog outside started barking.

And not just barking, but going crazy!

I figured that maybe someone was outside near our yard or something, so I went out to check on things and found a little visitor.

This little guy was our visitor.

He couldn’t fly so he was just hopping around tormenting our dog.

When I seen it, I ran in and got my camera really quick because I LOVE to do animal shots.

He was very brave and let me get very, very close to him before he would scatter a few feet away.

On this picture, I decided that I wanted to do a faded sort of look.

So, I decided to use The Pioneer Woman’s actions for Photoshop Elements.

The Pioneer Woman, if you didn’t already know, is one of my biggest inspirations in the photography world.

She started out by taking pictures of her kids, husband she calls Marlboro Man, life on her ranch and food.

She started her own blog, which was my biggest inspiration to start my own, and has since started her own tv show on The Food Network.

Ree Drummond, which is her real name, is very good at her photography.

So, she decided to add her own actions to her blog an they are available to download for free!

In the picture above, I used the Sharpen This, Boost and Faded actions.

Actions make life for a photo editor easy breezy, because they do all the work for you!

Here is the link to download the actions for free! – Photoshop Actions
