Regina Wamba is a photographer who is a person I think everyone should know. From her fantasy work to her book covers, she has a beautiful balance to what she produces. Regina is a member of our community and a personal friend of ours as well. We were curious to see what her views on color were, finding her “voice” with color, inspiration, and how she uses some of our actions! We’re always curious on how other artists see the world.
I never used to think much of actions, because of my experience with others. After learning just how invaluable these were from the community as a learning asset and creative tool, I had to share the 7 reasons I learned.
I’m so honored to be able to interview Stef King today! She’s a photographer based out of Australia and she’s amazing at everything she shoots. From beauty, fashion, portraits, on-location work, and more, she does it very well. Her sense of color style is gorgeous and when I saw how wonderfully she used our actions, we wanted to hear more about her work and about how she uses the actions in her workflow!
Jonny’s is someone who you will never forget once you know about him. Not only is his work awesome, but you can tell his passion from seeing his work! He always showcases some of our actions in a great way and we wanted to see what color means to him by asking him about it and how he uses some of our actions in his work.
Today we sit down with my friend Siegart von Schlichting! Her fantasy work is beautiful and the way she crafts colors inspires us. With what she posts in our Facebook group regularly, we were intrigued to find out what color means to her and how she uses actions in the process.
One of the reasons I like color toning actions is because it gives me a starting point in what direction to go. Since I don’t have a precise idea of what I like, it’s a fast and great way to get suggestions on what options are possible! I find my own personal strength to be skin retouching, but the idea of color eludes me unless I have outside references. Here is how I utilize actions as references.
