Withdrawal Notice of BTL Creative Photoshop Actions

Launched in September 2014 the Beyond the Lens Creative Actions have been part of the Beyond the Lens portfolio for just over five years. I created them at a time when I was highly inspired by victorian nostalgia and wanted to introduce a softer, defused, matted and inky 'look' to my processing. 

For the past few years, my working style has swung the other way, becoming lighter and crisper. So I've decided to withdraw the Creative Actions as this collection no longer contributes to my current style of processing. 

I've always maintained that the Actions I've created, and sell, are used in my own daily practice, and to this day I still use the Orginal Actions, Crystal Actions and soon to be launched the Nordic Actions. Therefore it makes sense to retire the Creative Actions from my portfolio. 

They will still be available until the end of September at a heavily discounted price of just $10. (Originally launched at $95). See website for full details and terms of sale.

Beyond the Lens Action Collection

Originally launched in 2012 this Actions collection is still one of my best sellers! Selling to all corners of the world to professional photographers and to those just starting out.  I designed these Actions based on the needs of my workflow as a portrait, wedding and still life photographer.

MAKE IT WORTH WHILE  - For the love of beautifully processed photography. It's not always easy to find the right light, or even the right backdrop. Knowing how to process images to bring in more light, whilst enhancing colour and detail, is one of the first steps to feeling more confident in the skills needed to take work beyond what the camera can achieve. 

Overcast winter days can be difficult when the only natural light is heavy and atmospheric.  Just as brilliant sunny days can be overly contrasting. Adapting to various natural lighting conditions is one of the first struggles for many photographers. Professional processing skills can provide the answer and give that added confidence in knowing things can be 'fixed' later. 

I created Beyond the Lens Actions from the every-day steps I was taking in my own Photoshop processing.  Launched in 2012 Beyond the Lens Original Actions are still as popular as ever being used by both professional and creative photographers around the world. The collection is designed to give the user as many 'tools' as possible to create individual outcomes.  From bright to pastel, from sticking to soft and hazy... all in one beautifully tailored collection.  See website for full details.

Finding my balance....

FINDING MY BALANCE, when all around me is in a whirl.... Finding placement, inner structure, consideration and leading lines. A visual meditation of harmonies....  Recently I have started using Instagram as my main daily uploading social platform. It's been fun to get back into finding creatives and being inspired. The stretch that comes from uploading every day makes me push deeper into my creativity.

Welcome to the New Year

WELCOME TO THE NEW YEAR. My favourite kind of inspiration, from the freezing days ahead to the first signs of Spring to follow. As the ground renews herself and life bursts free from the frozen landscape it's the perfect time of year to pursue creative aspirations. These projects and plans will shape my coming year and lead me into the arms of summer. Happy New Year, Sarah x
