I purchased the hot, new action pack from the Boutwell Studio this morning, and I’m having so much fun playing around with them in Photoshop!  For those of you who are asking, “what’s an action?” Well, I’ll tell ya.  An action is a series of adjustments you would make to a photo to achieve a certain effect….all rolled up into one simple press of a button.  You can create your own “action” or you can purchase actions from other photographers who market their own, stylized effects.  It’s a HUGE time-saving technique used by lots of photographers.  Here’s a few examples of different looks you can achieve with the Boutwell action pack, demonstrated by the ever-adorable Maggie Mae.


Old School

The city of Austin has been taken over by huge guitars planted all throughout the city.  Each guitar is customized by a different artist. The guitar above is decorated with salamanders and the one below is made to look like a tree, which was our fav.

Happy funtime!

Where in Austin is the top guitar? I see water in the background. Town Lake maybe?

These guitars are lining the Town Lake waterfront along Auditorium Shores.
