Photoshop Actions for Wedding Photography

For further photography-related information check out my compendium of tips.

Just purchased Jeff Ascough (one of the world's most highly regarded wedding photographers) Photoshop Actions II. These install into Photoshop and allow you to run his treatments on your own shots. Initial impressions are very favourable. The actions are elegant, customisable and the finished photos look terrific. The above shot (from Donna and Paul's wedding in Hythe) was treated using a process called 'Silk Stocking' - a digital version of a traditional black-and-white printing technique which bleeds the shadows into the highlights. The actions are easily set-up for batch processing allow hundreds of photos to be processed at a time - fantastic!
