Editing styles come and go, remember the selective desat, sepia, and magical glow? They were hot but like all trends the day came when something new came around and the faded to the background. There are some styles that are classic and never go away like the grainy black and white. Today I notice a big variety in the editing trends. Editing styles seem to vary by niche or subject. For instance weddings seem to have one style, newborn portraits another, and so on and so forth.
So I found a few styles that seem to be hot and sticking around!
1. I call this sweet cream editing. Its sweet creamy slightly muted and Florabella is the place to go to get the actions to turn your portraits into dreamy sweetness!
3. Matte textured perfection! Besides the sweet creamy look you get from Florabella my next favorite look is the Matte look you get from Brianna Graham’s actions! I’m a huge fan of all of her actions! Heres a shot from her action site. Isn’t it to die for!
4. Classic Texture Twist. I love the spin put on classic edited with the addition of textures and overlays. You can take the simplest edit and transform it into such magic that way! For me there is only one place to go to get the textures and overlays I need- Jessica Drossin! Here are two examples from her site!
5. Finally there is what I cal Ooh La La Couture. For me Wish Photography Actions totally covers all aspects of couture editing with their action collections, that I think everyone should have! Here is a before & after example from their site.
As you visit these sites you’ll notice a trend as to what style editing goes with what type of photography but I like to mix it up as much as possible!
