How to make an action for adding textures to seamless backdrops | Seattle & Tacoma Newborn Photographer

As a Seattle & Tacoma Newborn Photographer, I love being able to use seamless photos for parent photos and also in other sessions like maternity sessions and milestone sessions. Seamless is great to work with but can often have some flaws or cause banding in images. I love being able to use textures to polish off the look of the seamless paper. My favorite textures are purchased from Glow Portraits. Check out the video below to find out my process on how turn adding textures into an action and then you can batch edit and streamline the process!

Since making this video, I created a new action that has an if else statement to change the orientation based on if the image is portrait or landscape.

I was also asked to show how I edit newborn digital composites shot on black background as well as cream so I made a quick video. I know I sound awkward, but I was trying to keep an eye on my little one at the same time and it was hard to focus! These beautiful digital composites were purchased from Luisa Dunn Photography.

Seattle, Tacoma & Olympia Newborn Photographer | Digital Backdrops Before & After

If you follow the Dawn Rocks Photography, Seattle newborn photographer, on social media, you may have noticed the last few months the addition of some gorgeous really detailed set ups on some of my posts. I recently began incorporating digital backdrops as an efficient way to add something extra special for a set up or two into my clients newborn session galleries. Normally these set ups would take quite some time to set up and perfect and a newborn session already takes quite some time to get through all the set ups and poses as it is. I wanted to share a before and after of how I shoot in studio for the backdrops and how it comes to life.

I pose baby on a prop designed by the artist that created the digital backdrops. I use a variety of colors over the prop based on the digital backdrop to achieve a seamless and natural look for editing.

These beautiful backdrops are designed and sold by the talented Luisa Dunn Photography shop out of Australia.
