Experimenting with a matte finish

Experimenting with a matte finish

Many people have asked me in the past if I retouch or edit my photos… and until recently, maybe in the past few weeks, I honestly just ran a soft sharpen tool, more for myself than anyone else, and did resizing.

Lately, I have been playing with some new filters I purchased in a bundle for my photoshop.

The current one I have been playing with is called, “Fashion Mix”.

It’s perfect for RL photographers, and for online graphics editors.

The above tone is called Matte Fashion.

Although this is not the exact one I am using, you can pick up something similar here.

Normally I would not do this. Although, I do think that this looks nice. It doesn’t take too much away from the product, and yes, in the case of THIS photo, I did edit my arm to remove the hair from the sleeve.

A nice matte finish, a couple tweaks here and there, and I think it came out pretty nice.

What are your thoughts?

Do you like this style?

I will be trying out new ones over the next week so make sure you watch out for them!

If you are interested in trying some of these, I can offer you the websites I have personally used to find actions that I love.

Here is one to start. It’s a tutorial site where you can learn to make your own, or learn how to manipulate the actions you already have to fit your needs.

The Photo Argus

The reason this is one of my most favorite sites is that it is up to date. As in, it’s current.

Make sure to explore their website, and do not miss the resources page.

If you use the site, please let me know so I can show your art here from time to time.

Now, go forth and create! hehe

Descriptions are always as follows

Item/URL | Product Name | Event | Month

I do my best to always credit everything in my photos.

No matter the length of my posts, I always include the above explanation in my styling area.

Also, I am including a link to my Sponsored Storearea if I am blogging one of my sponsors so that you can find their mainstores.

I hope that you have enjoyed this post!
