Featured on the blog today is photographer Alyssa of Alyssa Rose Photography based in Birmingham, AL. Alyssa used our Film Solution Actions which aim to seamlessly blend your digital and analog work together for a cohesive feel. We hope you enjoy Alyssa’s commercial look and the energy she’s able to capture in her photographs as much as we do!
Red Leaf: Where do you find inspiration?
Alyssa: I find inspiration in everything around me. The way the light hits the trees on a warm, golden evening or a beautiful sunset. I’m constantly observing everything around me to find inspiration in the things that are in front of us every day. There’s so much to see when you really take the time to notice.
Red Leaf: If you could spend a day with any photographer/mentor, who would it be and why?
Alyssa: Probably photographer Ben Sasso. His images are what I strive to achieve in my images: clean, compelling and sharp.
Red Leaf: What’s the best advice someone has ever given you?
Alyssa: “Comparison is the thief of joy”
Red Leaf: Tell us about your workflow.
Alyssa: I edit most of my work in Camera Raw. I always like to bring out the blacks, and bump up certain colors depending on what I’m trying to achieve with my edit. After tweaking the curves a bit, I open the image in Photoshop CS6 to complete my editing. I own Red Leaf’s Film Solution actions, Vintage actions, and Solstice actions. The Film Solution actions are definitely my favorite because there are SO many options. It has sped up my photo processing by a long shot, and sometimes I don’t even have to tweak anything for the photo to end up exactly how I wanted it.
Gear: Canon 5D MKIII, Canon 35 1.4L, Sigma
