Sweet P turned 1 {RadLab giveaway}

Recently I got to take some family pictures for my sister in honor of my niece turning one. I am so glad there was a breeze on the evening we took these…it helps highlight her awesome hair. As I write this, FireCracker is sitting next to me. She is squealing in delight at the sight of her cousin. Poor Sweet P, I think my daughter’s infatuation with you is only growing.

I took all of these with my 85mm lens.

The photos above were all processed with Photoshop CS4, using Totally Rad Actions – the one action set I use more than any other. I’ve used these actions for several years. I will say, VERY RARELY do I use an action at 100% (I know that makes no sense for some of you). I usually use 2-4 actions, but just a little bit of each.

My favorite Totally Rad Actions are:

Oh, Snap!

Warm it up, Kris!

Pool Party

Grandma’s Tap Shoes

Sadly, that is only 4 of what seems like a 100 in the 2 action sets I own. Even with Totally Rad, at times I get overwhelmed with all the possible combos. As a result, I have those 4 favorites that I stick to using most of the time. About a month ago, I got an email from Totally Rad highlighting their new product, RadLab. It looked amazing…almost instantly I sent off an email their way asking to try it and share it with you….and now one of you will get to win your own!

I LOVED using RadLab! It was a bit addicting to see the variations of my image instantly. It really is a genius product and I am happy to recommend it. After editing Sweet P’s pictures using the traditional Totally Rad Actions, I loaded RadLab to test it out for the first time. I picked one of my favorite images to use. RadLab is not another action set, but is a Photoshop Plugin. All of my favorite Totally Rad Actions are included in RadLab. If you are considering purchasing Totally Rad Actions, I would suggest starting with RadLab instead. If you have ever used Lightroom, it feels like a combination of Lightroom & Photoshop. Love.

When you open an image in RadLab, you also see visuals of the different editing options available….and a billion ways to customize those. This is just one screen shot from a small section of the possible options.

I could have continued to play with just one image for way too long. You can see below, there are tons of ways to create very different looks.

I found an old picture I took in Hawaii…not amazing, but not too bad either. It was taken with timer set on the ground in front of us. Here is the camera version:

hawaii-01

We were in a shady area and the picture feel a little bluish to me. When I have photos with a blue tint, I tweak them using the Warm it up, Kris action….which is included in RadLab. Here is a look at the screen when I opened it with RadLab. There is an option to split your screen to see the changes you make in comparison to the original. I’ve mentioned before that I rarely use an action at 100%. I like to run it just a little bit. With RadLab I can still do everything I did before with Photoshop, but now I can see my options instantly.

Here is the “after” using RadLab.
hawaii-01b

My priority during the days is my kids…not having amazingly edited images on my blog. I loved using actions because I have not had the time to truly learn Photoshop. The downside of all the actions I own, is I don’t have time to really see how they all work. It takes too long to open and run each action in an attempt to decide the look I want for a photo. As a mom, I am a big fan of RadLab…as a photographer, I am a big fan of RadLab. (no, I am not getting paid to say that!)

Now if there was a way to combine RadLab with Pinterest, so I could see different decorating options play out in my home….that would be very dangerous. And Chris would have to keep my computer under lock & key to keep me productive in life!

So, like I said, one of you can win your own version of RadLab!

(You will need to own Photoshop CS3 or later OR Photoshop Elements 7 of later to run RadLab)

Here are the details:

We made the cupcakes and decorated the boxes, so, so far, that’s the most rad thing that has happened to me this week!

  • sonja - my rad week includes lots of snuggling with the kids after they’ve bee at school day.

  • Linden White - I love landscape photography. Anything in nature. I experience God the most when I am outside enjoying what He has created and just love to sit and listen to the “silence” of nature.
    The most rad part of my week was this morning. Getting to sleep in and not go to work until 11. I normally have to wake up every morning at 4:30 am and don’t get home until 3 pm. Not today. TODAY I SLEPT UNTIL 8:30. TOTALLY RAD.

  • Brittney - The most RAD thing about my week thus far….Planning the new school year for the Boys & Girls Club! Were ready to impact kids lives with creating a safe place for them who need it most. I love developing new programs that will help reach my community. I have a fun, RAD, job! (I also just started my own personal bog :)

  • jody - The most rad thing about my week..is that summer is over!! the boys start school on thursday – i for some reason can’t accept summer is over!!!

    ah well. bring on the sweaters!!

  • Salena Santos - The most rad thing about my week is that I am due to have a baby any day!!

  • cami - I think I enjoy weddings as much as families/kids. I’ve just learned the harsh truth that I was not necessarily cut out for those award winning newborn shots. You know the ones, hands propped under the chin, in a deep sleep – but perfectly posed. I have an entirely new respect for those who specialize in that!

  • Meredith - My favorite type of photography is spontaneous. Having the camera out for those moments you would never think to capture.

  • Michelle - My favorite things to photograph are my kids, I don’t think I photograph much of anything else besides them except food. Uh I see a pattern LOL!

  • Marianna - This looks amazing. I enjoy kid/people photos, but with no kids of my own to photograph (yet), I have to settle for some sweet still lifes.

  • Debbie C - I love “portrait” photography, not the standard studio type, but the kind that captures precious moments, like the photos that you take! These days my favorite subject is my baby girl, of course!

  • Kathi Jenkins - I love taking candid shots of my family. And the most rad thing that happened to me this week is that I got to take candid shots of my family while we were camping!

  • Nicole - Oh. My. Word. I love the idea of being able to see them instantly (before you run them!). How would you rate/compare this to Lightroom? I’ve been contemplating that purchase for several months now, but can’t bring myself to spend the $$ yet. Right now I’m rockin’ PS (CS5) with some TR, M4H and a few other actions. How are you running the actions at less than 100% in PS? Do you adjust after you run by layer? AMAZING giveaway. I love photographing my kids but am also in the early stages of building my portrait photography business. I hate to even say that because I feel like everyone is starting their own photography business. I did a session in June and now her husband has a photography business. What? I would love to test something that’s faster than trying out individual actions in PS! And the most rad thing about my week is that our 3-yr-old starts his Pre-3 class at school on Thursday! I can’t believe he is starting school – even if it is only a few hours a week. Always amazed at how quickly that time goes.

  • Marisa - My favorite type of photography is everyday moments with my sons…a hide-and-seeker’s sly face or a belly laugh in progress makes my heart so happy. RadLab sounds awesome…thanks for sharing, girl!

    I am getting a dslr camera for my birthday so I need this and if I won that would be totally rad! :)

    The most rad thing about my week… we took our two year old to a massive street fair on Saturday, tons of people, lots of yummy food. And she wore her big girl panties and didn’t have an accident! Yahoo, we have ended potty training. What could be more rad than that? :)

  • Sarah Baker - I love taking pictures of friends and family and then giving them the gift of those moments I took! IT’s so fun to see friends enjoy a disc full of images. I love it!

  • Kristin - I love taking pictures of seniors and newborns…And, the most rad thing about my week is the possibility that it could call below 100 degrees for the first time in months! :) Gotta love Texas!

    Thanks for the great giveaway!

  • Michelle Thomas - Taking pictures of our everyday is my favorite! These babies grow so fast, and I don’t want to forget a thing!

  • Rhiannon - I easily enjoy photographing my girls the most! Now if only I could get the pics to come out as good as yours…

  • Faith Buss - Oh my! I’ve been drooling over this product since they teased it several weeks ago!! I love, love, love capturing my kids. Doesn’t matter what they’re doing.

  • Christina - I don’t haven any kids yet, but most of my cousins and my olders sister’s do. I like photographing their families for them, but what I love the most is being the silent observer.

  • Kristie C. - I have been wondering if anybody I knew had reviewed the RadLab yet. It looked pretty cool. I love photographing my kids. The most rad part of my week is parent teacher night last night. My daughters second grade teacher is going to be great!

  • Kristie C. - I%20have%20been%20wondering%20if%20anybody%20I%20knew%20had%20reviewed%20the%20RadLab%20yet.%20%20It%20looked%20pretty%20cool.%20%20I%20love%20photographing%20my%20kids.%20%20The%20most%20rad%20part%20of%20my%20week%20is%20parent%20teacher%20night%20last%20night.%20%20My%20daughters%20second%20grade%20teacher%20is%20going%20to%20be%20great!

  • Dana - Lovely portraits of Sweet P! She will look at these years from know how deeply she was loved.

    My favorite photos to view are National Geographic portraits. Compelling closeups that make you crave a conversation with the subject (albeit with a skilled interpreter).

    The raddest thing about my week? Having moved to a new city and discovering all kinds of FRESH locations for shoots!

  • Raechel Myers - I love the Totally Rad Actions group. I purchased their Lightroom presets almost a year ago and definitely enjoy playing with them and, like you said, kind of making them my own.

    Lightroom has been my baby step into editing in Photoshop. I’d love to win these actions so I could jump into the deep end with some totally rad tools under my belt!

  • Kerri C - I love travel photography and taking pictures of my husband and adorable dog!

  • Ellie Born - I love capturing life with kids. For example… the floor after a meal, the weeds in a vase on my kitchen window sill, the toilet paper unrolled all the way down the hall, the nose and fingerprints on my windows… the list goes on.

  • Jessamy - I love taking pictures for friends and their kiddos. It always feels great to do something nice for others. I’m sure they would appreciate better edited pictures as much as I would enjoying editing!

  • Jacqueline R - The pictures of Sweet P are absolutely gorgeous!

    I have realized that everyday photography is my favorite. It captures those “real” moments better than anything else. Although portraits are wonderful…I find myself gravitating toward the unposed moments.

  • Heidi - The most rad thing that happened to me this week was losing power during the hurricane. Odd answer, I know, but seeing how my kids turned it into an adventure reminded me how much fun playtime can be without electronic assistance. They’ll remember Irene only for the fun times.

  • Sophie~Bug's Mom - I love taking pictures of my kids too and am so excited to be taking your photog course next week! I think I could love being an action girl too!

  • Beth H. - It would be “rad” to win this… sorry to be so corny. The best thing about my week was my basement flooding (believe it or not) from Hurricane Irene. It forced me to clean and reorganize and gave me a good excuse to get rid of a bunch of clutter in my life. Thanks!

  • Caroline Erickson - So far my most rad thing today is dancing with my 3 girls (6,4, and 1) to Avett brothers in the kitchen while we make blueberry muffins!

  • Sarah - I enjoy taking totally rad photos of my little man every day :)

  • Lindsay P. - My favorite thing is taking pictures of my son, but my second favorite thing is taking pictures of my friends (who can’t necessarily afford a real photographer) and their kids, and giving them something special to remember milestones by just because I can.

  • wendy - i love trying to capture people’s happy emotions!

  • Caroline Erickson - So far the raddest part of my day is dancing to Avett Brothers with my 3 girls (6,4, and 1) in the kitchen while we make muffins!

  • Jennifer - photos of my kids. :) I’d LOVE to win this!!

  • Letty - I love taking candid photos, capturing the ‘real’ moments of life. I’ve been harvesting my garden this week….and that is rad considering the cold summer we’ve had in Montana this year.

  • angie - i love that my kids love photography as well…they’ve grown up with a camera always present, and i love it when they grab my camera and take photos of everyday life as we go through our day. and the best part? looking through all of the cute (blurry) and simply lovely photos they take at the end of the day. i know i’ll cherish them as the years go by.

  • Emily - What kind of photography is it where you follow your kid around as he discovers the world during an ordinary day and you shoot him as unobtrusively as possible? I document as much as possible. And then I take (not very good, but getting better) pictures of our food. Food photography is hard!

    This radlab thing looks *amazing* – I use actions for the same reason you do and I bet it would just make that even more awesome.

  • Becki - I *may* have just died and gone to heaven.
    If I am picked, you will have a new best friend. Be prepared! ;)

  • Ashley Harris - I love natural light photography of my family and nature and basically whatever catches my eye. I am working on getting better images, but I love it.

  • Kelly W - The most rad part about my week is going back to school. Summer was wonderful, but I need more structure in my life again!

  • Susan - Kiddos! I love photographing anyone and everyone’s kids…including mine, of course. I would SO LOVE to try RadLab! Thanks for the giveaway!

  • shannan - I love to take pictures of my kids and take lots of pictures of cars as all my family is involved in the sport…this would be a great addition for all the pics i take

  • Kim - Oooh, this looks good! Most rad thing…my baby turned 17 this week.

  • Jessica - I’m a candid photography girl! thanks for the chance to win!

  • Jenna - my favorite photography is getting the artsy angles on everyday things, so candid of people, or pretty things:)

  • Natalie@TheShadyAcre - Until my son was born eight months ago, my favorite photography was documenting life around our shady acre: gardens, chickens, ducks, cats, dog, and food. Now, I’m still documenting our life, but my primary focus is on our precious son.

  • angie - i love that my kids love photography as well…they’ve grown up with a camera always present and i love it when they grab my camera and take photos of everyday life as we go through our day. and the best part is looking through all of the cute (sometimes blurry) and simply lovely photos at the end of the day. i know i’ll cherish having those shots more and more as the years go by.

  • Kimberly - I love photographing my family outdoors, having a great time exploring something new.

  • Tammy - Well the obvious answer to what kind of photography is my fave is shooting my daughter. She is doing something new and hilarious every day! But I want to get better at using the self-time for sure. I want to be in MORE pictures with her!!

  • Kate A - I love photographing everything around me – the small details. But especially family moments I don’t want to forget!

  • colleen from alabama - Beach photos of my family, hands down. Everybody is sunkissed and happy; the scenery ain’t too shabby either :)

  • Ryanne - I am not a good photographer. Well, really, I am not a photographer, but I try to capture good pics of my kids.

  • Sarah - Radlab is sooooo awesome…I have photoshop CS4…and would love to be able to use RADLAB!! I love photographing my twin boys…just doing the little things that make me laugh everyday :) The most “rad” thing that happened to me this week was that our house sold after over 1 yr. on the market. Yeah!

  • AmyB - I love shooting portraits but I love the look of candid shots a whole lot more!

  • Courtney Henson - Hmmm…the most rad thing about my week is that my son starts school tomorrow! And boy are both of us ready for it!

  • Janine - I love your photos and I think that rad lab program looks awesome. I enjoy taking nature and landscape photos. My mom always teases me about that fact that my pictures never seem to have people in them :) I’m a newbie to photoshop too. I’m figuring it out with trial and error and lots of google queries. And the RAD part of my week was getting my electricity back in 12 hrs after the hurricane (many friends and neighbors are still out and will be for the week) and no house damage. Small blessings!

  • Gretchen - Raddest thing about my week? Seeing my five year old sit down by her new BFF on the bus, and hearing them laugh as it drove away. Knowing she’s going to be OK is the best feeling. :)

  • Misty Waldenville - I love candid portrait photography! I love how some of the best pictures that I take of my kids are when they pointing at something or picking up sticks and rocks. Even the “pouting because they are totally over this picture thing” makes for better pictures than “look at the camera and say cheese” pictures.

  • marcy - RadLab is on my wish list right now!!! Too bad my DD needs braces and glasses! :(

  • Samantha Bender - The raddest part of my week is always snuggling with my three boys. It’s pretty hard to top those moments!

  • Monique W - Rad Lab looks genius! Especially as I’m in the midst of processing 1200 wedding photos! Love Totally Rad – I use their lightroom presets.

  • Tessa - Wow. That’s a lot of comments! I enjoy photography that captures memories. My daughter that is Firecrackers age broke her arm on Sunday, and I can now relate to how you felt in wanting to snuggle her without this big bulky cast in the way. My heart just hurts for her. I am grateful it is her arm and not her leg, but I still wish I could just take it all away. It’s hard, not knowing what to do to make things all better for her. But I know – this to shall pass, and will quickly be just a memory.

  • Sandy - First, I want to say that I love reading your blog! I enjoy photographing my 3 children and all of their advertures. The rad thing about this week is that it is my birthday today. Radlab would be a rad birthday gift!

  • Kim - I will photograph whatever I can, as long as I have the camera in hand!

  • Joy Fisher - I have kids like you, Ashley, so I love to capture the beauty of everyday moments. I love that anyway because it helps me remember than, with my camera, any moment no matter how gray (and I live in Seattle) can be a beautiful one if I look at it the right way. That’s an important thing to help keep things (life) in perspective. Along the same vein, I love it when we take a trip or an outing and others who were their see some of my images and get the epiphany of, “I was there too and I didn’t “see” the day that way at all.” I love it when they start to get that it’s all in how you look at things!

  • Erica Kirby - I love photographing my kids! I love capturing their personalities and the way they really are at this precious time in their sweet little lives. It’s something I never want to forget, and thanks to my camera, I don’t have to :)

  • Janna - I’ve just started using actions, this looks awesome, I mostly photograph the everyday things with my kids.

  • Katie - I love candid shots. I will still try and get some posed shots for different occasions but it is always the candids I love the most. My most rad moment of the week will happen on Saturday when my sisters and I go to the Pearl Jam concert! Where I fully intend to let the music take me back and act like a teenager again! :)

  • Julie B - My daughter is my muse, so needless to say, she is my favorite subject to photograph. (Our dogs are just glad to have to finally spread around the MWAC.) Love the Boutwell’s actions, so RadLab would be an awesome addition to my toolbox. Thank you for the opportunity!

  • Elisa Nishimura - I am going to be very original and say that my goal is to take great pics of my kids. Would love RadLab; specially because it is compatible with my PSE. Thanks for the opportunity!

  • Megan - I love taking picrures of my daughter. She is almost 9 months old and it is so much fun to watch her grow and look back at how much she has already changed!

  • Courtney Shrum - My son started crawling this week!!!

  • Brooke - The highlight of my week was hearing my 4 year old tell me that she had just blown a kiss to her sissy (who is in Heaven) and telling me with absolute confidence that she really thinks she felt it. Melted my heart. Sounds sad but really was such a sweet blessing.

  • Amanda - I love trying to capture *unexpected emotion*.. I can’t really explain it, but we all know what it is. ;) .. Oh.. and totally RAD this week?? .. kids go back to school!!!! :) whoop whoop!! Sweet giveaway!!

  • amber - I love photography my kids & my oldest started grade this week! :)

  • Darcie Braaten - I LOVE photographing children and newborn babies the most. I love newborns because they are like butter in your hands and children are so fun and expressive.

Love your blog too by the way….it’s my first one I check every day :)

  • Jamie - I enjoy photographing little ones (5 and younger) mostly because there’s almost never a way to perfectly pose them. They giggle, squirm, laugh, cry, frown, etc. – that is SO REAL and that’s exactly what I love!

  • Brooke - The highlight of my week was hearing my 4 year old tell me that she just blew a kiss to her sissy (who is in Heaven) and then telling me with absolute confidence that she really thinks she felt it. Sounds sad but was really such a sweet blessing.

  • Liz Lovi - I love documenting weddings…they are so wonderful and special because everyone there is happy…happy for the couple and the bride and groom are happy in love :) But I basically love freezing moments in time, that turn into memories that last a lifetime. And…the rad thing about this week is that I get to visit my family!!

  • Jen Nichols - So cool you can use it in elements! Love taking pics of the family, of course….:)

  • Jamie - I enjoy photographing little ones(5 and younger) mostly because there’s almost never a way to perfectly pose them. They giggle, squirm, laugh, cry, frown, etc – that is SO REAL and that’s exactly what I love!

  • Reidunn - I like the kind of photography where you have to look for the beautiful details. For example deserted areas like a harbour or an industrial area.

Anything to help keep me away from my computer screen editing my life away. I would much prefer spending more time with my 3 little ladies!!

  • Chandra - I wish I knew how to take better photos of my son. In any case, sounds like RadLabs could offer some improvement.

  • marta - I love taking pictures of my 2 crazy boys and my beautiful princess daughter.

    makes a mama so proud!
    x0x

  • Amber Ramsey - I love seeing a photographer catch life with kids in action. Call it lifestyle or photojournalistic, or whatever you want…I just love to see life as we moms know it frozen in a photo (someone who captures this style so well is Molly Flanagan).

  • Kelli - I am totally lusting after RadLab!!! As for the most rad thing about my week, it would have to be the deep fried butter I had yesterday at the fair. Sounds disgusting, but don’t knock it til you try it! Now off to dust off that treadmill…

  • Mary - I love candid photo’s the most!

  • l y d i a - The most rad thing… starting a new year of homeschool with five little ones, 8 and under. Overwhelming/Fun/Scary/Rewarding…but, rad that the kids have started calling me Miss Mama.

  • Monica - My favorite thing to photograph is the remodeling process on my house and my beautiful twin niece and nephew! They were born 2 and a half months early, weighed 2 pounds at birth, and spent 7 weeks in the NICU. Six months later, they are thriving! That is definitely the most rad thing that’s happened to me and my family in a while.

  • elizabeth c - i love taking pictures of my kids (i just wish they loved it as much)…nature. this this awesome!

  • Kathy Reid - I love taking pictures of my children and capturing their interactions with each other.

  • Renata - I love taking pictures of my kiddos, hard at work on their Legos. The most rad thing about my week has been that my older son started third grade and my little one turned four years old…and it made them both so happy. So much growing up…

  • Savy - I first want to say that you have the best giveaways EVER! Thank you for them. I am just learning the ins and outs of photography and I love it. I started a blog to share my everyday life with my mom and to just remember the first years of my marriage before children. My husband is a graphic designer and photographer so there is an endless number of pictures of me but I want to have the same memories of him. Therefore I have to be behind the camera. I also want this to become second nature to me so when we have children I will not miss a thing. RadLab would help my edits tremendously.

  • Bethany - The most rad part of my week was getting great pics of my three boys in the beach grass on the shore of Lake Superior, one of my favorite places with my favorite people.

  • Karen in NYC - Oooh! I’m new to photoshop and would love to be able to use these actions. I like photographing people and animals.

  • Jenny - The most rad thing about my week is the generator that is humming outside our front door, keeping our refrigerator running, day 3 of now power thanks to Hurrican Irene. No power and 3 kids under age 5 =’s interesting! Just a bit a go my husband connected our router and computer to the generator too so I’m a happy camper. Almost literally :)

  • Shannon - Oh how I would love this!!! I recently closed my portrait photography business in order to focus more time on my soon-to-be 3 children. I would love having this set to quickly and efficiently edit my images. My favorite images are natural moments with my kids. :)

  • Tess - i love rad actions! i photograph everything from weddings and portraits.

  • Delia - I like candid pictures of my kids (4 and 9 months), but I LOVE looking at Black and White photography, with all the shades and textures.. I find it beautiful. RadLab sounds amazing!

  • mer - i love to photograph little loves and the most rad thing about my week is that we made our move official by signing our lease!

  • Kezia - I enjoy taking photos of food! I know it should be my family and friends but a slice of cake doesn’t run around screaming when you are trying to take its photograph! (Not that all my family or friends do that either……..)

  • Delia - I love Black and White photography with all its shades and textures. RadLab sounds amazing!

  • Kelly J. R. - I would love to play around with actions in Photoshop. I’ve heard so many people talk about them but haven’t tried them myself. The most “rad” part of my week was celebrating my 1 year wedding anniversary.

  • Tristen - I love using both my iPhone (w/Instagram) and my digital to take photos of everyday life as it happens around me. I only just discovered actions and what they can do, and have checked out the Totally Rad website – I would LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to win an action set!

  • Jessica McCart - I will do both. I love candid shots of family’s playing and smiling at one another. Pictures that show the real feelings.

    A rad thing about the week: My brother is coming to visit from Florida…my whole family with be together this week. Doesn’t get better than that! My two year old daughter remembers him from last August when he came to visit but she is in a whole new talking, acting, dancing, funny, phase now. It is going to be rad for my bro and Claire to talk to each other. :D

  • dee perrin - I love taking photos of children and babies! I’ve really been wanting to try out RadLabs!

  • Amy S. - My favorite photos to take are of my hubby and 5 month old son playing together. We moved out to western Kansas a little over a week ago from Wichita, and I can’t wait to shoot all of the beautiful landscape, too!

  • Nicole Payzant - I LOVE wedding photography!! There is just something so special about being able to preserve such a special day, the people, moments, details, atmosphere and emotion. Plus, it keeps me on my toes!

  • Sara Stapleton - I love to take pictures of high school seniors! This RadLab sounds amazing!

  • Kathleen - I enjoy portrait photography with natural light. Mainly pics of my kiddos, but I also love taking photos of my friends’ kids for random mini presents.

  • Jessica McCart - I love pictures of families together smiling, laughing…happy.

    The rad thing about my week….My brother is visiting from Florida this week(I live in WA) and my two year old (almost three) hasn’t seen him in a year. She remembers him. She is such a chatter, singer, dancer…this year. It will be rad to see their interaction.

    Jessica

  • Alisha - I have some rad actions and I love them! I would love me some RadLab too! My favorite subject is by far people. I love the challenge of thinking up new things while trying to capture their personality at the same time.

  • Leah - I love capturing day to day life, from a more artistic point of view than the norm (if that makes sense!). I just recently purchased photoshop, and would love to use RadLab!

  • Ashley H - I love photographing the everyday moments…especially with my kiddos!

  • Richel - The thing that I enjoy the most about photography is capturing the in between moments when people have no idea that my camera is still clicking. When they are being themselves and enjoying life and those that they love. That is why I love photography, for those moments that would be left unnoticed if it weren’t for the lens of a camera.

  • Kendall - Something rad this week? I get to skype on Friday morning with my two best friends that live 9 hours away. I can’t wait!

  • Kate S. - I most enjoy photographing natural elements and my dogs, but would be most interested in using RadLab for portraits!

  • Jen V. - Love the pictures of Sweet P…it seems like just yesterday you were posting pictures of her from the hospital!

    I’ve been really into capturing pictures of every day life with my iphone (& instagram app). I feel like it’s more readily available than my bulky camera. But, when I do pull it out, it’s to take pictures of my adorable neices and nephews…can’t get enough of them :)

  • Jaime A. - While I love taking pictures of my kids… outside scenery doesn’t argue, talk back, or sulk… ;)

  • Ashley - I love taking photographs of my sweet baby girl – she’s 13 months old and is mobile now so the photos are so fun!

  • Sarah - My favorite kind of photography is whatever I’m shooting today! Weddings, family portraits, newborns, or “just” my own kiddos…love it all.

    Raddest thing lately is the new teal duvet cover I’ve been wanting forever…finally going on clearance!! YAY!

  • Angela Oberdeck - I love taking pictures of my 2yr old daughter….mostly outside….and especially while playing with friends. The most RAD thing about my week has been an impromptu camping trip – spontaneity rocks!! Thanks for all that you share about your photography….it’s truly inspiring.

  • Jennifer D. - Definitely the most rad part of my week was when I came home last night and my husband asked if he could see my iPad. I went to get it and inside he had printed out the confirmation of where he had ordered me a spot in your online SnapShot class!! Talk about ecstatic!! He didn’t have a clue about where to look or even the name. He just googled random words from stories I’ve shared with him about your blog! Yep, he rocks! :)

  • Molly - Pictures of my kids and family, for sure!

  • Katie M - I love photographing the craziness of family life! And, the most rad thing about my week? A last-minute getaway to the beach with my husband and four kids!

  • justine - i would loooove to win this! love actions. i love to take photos of food for some reason, and of course my dog, beck, because he’s the cutest thing i’ve ever seen.

  • Samantha Denys - Ohh toughy question, I haven’t exactly nailed down my favorite type of photography. I really enjoy landscapes (they don’t move and you don’t have to pose them ;) ), but there is something about doing a family shoot, or a wedding and seeing the clients face afterword that makes all the craziness worth it :) Would love to win this!!!

  • Jacqueline - I love to photograph everyday things. When we start a family, I’m sure that will be my favorite thing to photograph!

  • dana beth - i love doing portraits.

  • Miranda - I LOVE taking/looking/learning about photography with kiddos!! Esp mine! Hmm something rad… only 1 day of work this week!

  • MissJillian - My absolute favorite type of photography is photos of my nieces. But, unfortunately I live 2,000 miles away from them and don’t get to take their photos nearly often enough. So when I’m at home, I have to settle for my second favorite type of photography – food photography!

  • Rachel D - i love taking pictures of my family & capturing our everyday life so that i can remember those moments years from now…thanks for the giveaway!

  • Angelina Vanness - The pics of sweet pea and family are so lovely!! I love any photography that really captures the emotion, the love between friends or family members, and the laughs that ring trough the lives of the people photographed.

  • Melissa - It was my birthday this week…and my husband and I went to the beach (my favourite summertime activity) in a quaint little beach town! Loved it!!! (and took lots of pics)!!

I am a full time speech therapist and do not get to be home with my kids (although one is in school now) and like you don’t want to spend time away from them on the computer when I am home from work. I pretty much just photograph them…so the one RAD thing that happened this week (yesterday) is that I actually got a decent 1st day of school picture! I was so happy :)

  • Kim Inge - I%20would%20love%20to%20win%20this.%20I%20have%20photoshop%2C%20but%20never%20use%20it%20because%20like%20you%2C%20I%20don’t%20have%20time%20to%20learn%20it.%20My%20favorite%20photography%20is%20family%20pictures!

  • ddsquared - This is totally off-topic, but as a mother of 4 sons and a daughter (now grown) I too LOVE Legos. Here’s a tip I hope you’ll enjoy:

    Have your kids play Legos on a big sheet or a blanket!!!! When it’s time to clean up, you just grab the 4 corners and pour them into your storage bins. (I used large plastic bins w/lids) If you want to keep them separated by color or theme, just use several sheets to play on. Clean up is so quick and easy this way.

    Trust me, it’ll save you hours of time and they’ll have a easier time finding the pieces they’re looking for — including those tiny little hands.

    Hope that helps!

  • Sarah - I love children and newborn photography. Kids are so wonderful and they change and grow so fast, so capturing that moment in time is priceless! I also like finding art in the everyday, an old window, the shadow of a bike, a rusty gate… I like finding and capturing little things that people might normally pass by.

  • Veronica - I shoot a lot of photos where I work, UC Merced. The photos get used for promotion of our university from websites and publications to fliers.

    I LOVE Photoshop!

  • caroline-marieB - I love everything photo “fly” is so magical little time with both children and adults! I attended as a second shooter at a wedding and it was very emotional!
    thank you for everything you share, I still wonder how you do it to find all this time with 4 kids!!

  • mimi - Without a doubt, my most favorite thing to photograph are my children.

  • EmRuss - my grandma passed away yesterday and I have been reading her history and looking at her old pictures. I decided to do better about documenting the life of my little ones. That’s what I love about photography. Capturing the little moments of life that I would have otherwise forgotten.

  • gina - I’m a storyteller and photographer, so I love images that are honest and capture those moments you don’t always think of as “photogenic.” I’m like you…I use actions but never 100%. I love the ability to tweak images just a tiny bit so that they’re still authentic. I’d love to try RadLab!

  • Jenni - I love photographing KIDS

  • bethybrianna - I’m a newbie photographer, but I’m a graphic designer, so I LOVE Photoshop. I also love using actions! My husband and I both really enjoy landscape and nature photography, but I like taking pictures of people, too! Thanks!

  • carrie @ brick city love - I have been eyeing the rad action sets for a while but can’t afford them at the moment. I really love to do portraits & daily life photos, so this would be perfect.

  • Katrina - I love photographing my friends.

  • Christi - I love taking pics of my boys! Thanks for posting these tips. I just got PSElements and I’m overwhelmed. :)

  • Megan - The things I enjoy photographing the most are everyday things, the way my daughter does something, and the details about her (her eyelashes and little hands are my fave!). And the most rad thing about my week was last night I went to my first Zumba class…I was horrible but it was my first time. :)

  • darcy - my kids of course! i have been eyeing up the radlab for a couple weeks now!

  • Tiah - My favorite photography is pictures of just everyday things like eating breakfast or the kids playing outside. When the picture is just right, it is a beautiful way to remember our lives.

  • Cassie - I love to take pictures of my kids, doing whatever it is they do! I would also love to wind RadLab! That would be totally RAD!

  • Darci - The most rad thing this week was having a 2 year old cooperate for a birthday picture…now I need actions to put the finishing touches on it!!

  • Marykay - I think its rad that that radlab works with elements! I love photographing my family and the most rad thing about my week is that it is finally summer up here in the northwest so we have been able to play in the pool all week!!!

  • Ang - Ha! I think I’m commenter #573, so the odds aren’t necessarily in my favor, but this would be awesome! The raddest thing about my week? My little guy started preschool!

  • Kelly - The most rad thing that happened to me this week was last night around 4am when my 2 year old daughter threw up all over the front of my chest.

  • Stacy - My favorite photography of all time is when I’m able to capture my kids in the everyday moments of life, thanks for inspiring me in this way Ashley!

  • Christie - I’ve just recently been challenging myself to go manual…I have loved taking pictures of my three boys (when I can get them still enough)! It’s a journey for sure, but some great editing stuff would be amazing to turn my okay pictures into something worthy of being framed! HA!

  • risawest - here’s hoping i win… but i think you just sold me on the product. my absolute favorite thing to photograph? newborns. hands down favorite!

  • Kimberly - Hooray!! What an amazing give-away! I was just wondering what actions you were using on your great pics! I am in love with child photography right now, but boudoir is my favorite!! So much fun!

  • Stacy - My favorite photography of all time is when I’m able to capture my kids in the everyday moments of life, thanks for inspiring me in this way Ashley! Rad Lab looks way to fun to try out :)

  • Laura - i’m really enjoying pictures of couples lately. luuuuv pictures:).

  • Jordan G @ The Happy Homebodies - I love taking photos when we travel! It’s just so important to capture those places since we may never go back again. That ties in with the most rad part of my week- booking a trip to Italy for Thanksgiving! I can bet there will be some beautiful photos to be taken there!

  • Ali Harris - I love taking pictures of my kids and the photojournalistic style of photography.

  • Amy - love garden stills!!

  • Amanda - Definitely the family sessions…. they’re being together will make an impact later down the road by having everyone in a photograph :)

  • Amy - Oh my goodness! I want this!!! Let’s see…something RAD…. my kindergartener & biggest Momma’s boy EVER went to school this morning with NO tears. For real. Ok, and photography….I love capturing everyday life. My daughter’s curls, my middle boy’s Lego obsession, my oldest son’s artwork….

  • Mercedes - ooooh, shut up!! I have been waiting for this! I can’t believe it, finally they have totally rad actions for photoshop elements AND it comes in the form of RadLab, I love it, I want it, I need it. Lately I just can’t wait to take my photography to the next level and I have been reading like crazy, but still I need so much guidance and so much to learn… this will help a lot! I also do not have any time to learn photoshop… Hopefully I will win this one AND and entry to snap shop… or I will start a fund (a piggy for my savings), just to get those tools! Thanks Ashley!

  • sara - Without a doubt, my favorite photography – to look and and to take – is pictures of kids being themselves. Not posed or staged, just real kids.

  • Minnesotamom - I think I probably enjoy taking pictures of my own kids the most. They’re crazy, and I never get one of the two of them in the same frame looking great, but it’s fun to try. :)

  • Urska - Photography of my kids. I snapped my favorite pics of my kids this year and have half of them hanging in the house. I am anxiously awaiting the pic of my daughter to arrive this week. As Mpix is not going to dissapoint it should be here today or tomorrow. My favorite pic of my daughter is http://lenartusa.blogspot.com/2011/08/pomocnicahelper.html. I want to look at her messy face all the time.

  • Sara Schwarz - Love taking photos of the whole family. :)

  • Alicia Johnson - Love to photograph my little kiddos doing random things throughout the days and especially their interactions with each other. Is there anything more valuable than precious pictures of the ones you love? I think not!

  • Bopha - OMG!!! I need this, I love this, it would make my life so much easier and maybe I could find “my look”!!! I love all photography, little ones are probably my favorite.

  • Amy Gibson - OHM- i had no idea about Actions- and i thought i knew a little something about Photoshop! This is exciting… i want to go play now :)

  • Amy - Most rad thing about my week? Soaking in every breath of summer. A baseball game tonight (complete with a hot dog, of course), kayaking this weekend, a local festival, and BLTs every other night for dinner. Trying to tuck away every ray of sunshine in my mind so I can go to my happy place in the middle of dreary January!

  • Leontien - I guess I don’t really have one favourite subject or type of photography. I DO love to capture the everyday beauty that surrounds me: a flower, some random toys up close, my son’s beautuful eyes. What photography has brought me is to look at the world with different eyes: find beauty in the everyday and appreciate it.

  • Amy L. - My favorite is children!! I love photographing my two boys.

  • Heather - I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to win this for my husband. Hes been getting into photography over the last few years and he really enjoys it.

  • Geraldine - Thanks for the giveaway Ashley! Love photographing my kids, obviously.

  • Jamie - I love to photograph new babies…but even more than that I love to photograph my children so that some day they will be able to see what they were like “back then”!

  • holly - the most rad thing about my week, my baby started kindergarten!

  • j.p. - right now? pictures NEED to be more a part of our lives. i got burnt out taking portraits, candid & posed, of families & seniors & couples. and now my favorite photography is of our LIFE–daily & messy & lovely.

  • Nicole Voth - The photography I love the most is getting those perfect in-the-moment photos of my kids, showing exactly their personalities.

  • Kristin - I love to photograph my daughters. It is amazing to step away and see them through a camera lens.

  • Jessica Lynette - I love capturing my boys on camera! And we all love sitting down and looking through old pictures of them :)

  • Lauren - Wow! What a great tool to have! I love to photograph children… it’s a challenge! :)

  • Kimber-Leigh - i am definitely looking into radlab!

    the most rad thing about my week….definitely celebrating my birthday yesterday with my kiddos giving me b-day wishes, hugs, and kisses from early morning until they were tucked in at night!

  • becca - love love taking pictures of my 3 boys – 4, 2, and 10 weeks!!

  • Lynnette - What a RAD giveaway! :) It seems I enjoy a variety of photography but currently, my family and garden shots. Food photography is something I would love to improve. Thanks for a chance for great tool.

  • Ashley - What an awesome giveaway! I love taking photos of my 2 year old daughter, but after taking your SnapShop course online I’m trying to take more pictures of everyday life!

  • jen s - i love it when my kids let me take pictures of them just being them

  • Christina - Great photos of your family! My girl has that fluffy peep hair too :) This Radlab looks AMAZING! I love photographing my children and that is the rad thing about my week too… I get to be at home with them everyday, every week.

  • Geraldine - Thanks for the giveaway Ashley! Love photographing my kids! They’re still too young to complain about it!

  • Crystal - Ooh, I would love this!! I, too don’t want to waste my time editing or on my computer, but I can waste my time just going through and finding actions!! I could fiddle with them all day. This would be wonderful!! I love taking pictures of my kids, and I love finding and taking pictures of other beautiful things in life to put scripture on!! Working on little projects like that right now so I can surround myself in the Truth and beautiful pics!!

  • christina - Love. I used to take photos of anybody that would let me. I’m honing my interest to seniors and newborns, with a little bit of wedding thrown in!

  • Mamabirdy - I love capturing the everyday stories, your photos are a great standard to aim for! You’ve really inspired my photos to a higher level already. RadLab seems like it might really help lift my photos a bit higher! Thanks very much for the opportunity.

  • Suzanne W - My kids, of course! OOhhh and of food. That’s fun too!

  • Aaron - This would be fantastic! I’ve had Photoshop for a few months and these would make it soooo much easier to use!

  • Ashley Latham - I love newborns!!

  • Bryan Norton - I have been doing a lot of industrial photography, which has gotten me interested in old machines like trains. Anytime I’m on a work shoot and there happens to be a train (new, old, abandoned, doesn’t matter), I start shooting. Trains have a lot of stories, as do the tracks they run on. I think that is what draws me to images of them.

  • Ashley - pretty much the only thing I photograph right now is my daughter. and we’ll see if this is the most rad thing about my week, but today while getting my hair trimmed I randomly decided I wanted bangs. it’s nice and different for now!

  • Melissa - I would love this giveaway!

  • mia - yea for radlab! i have 3 little ones, so of course they are my favorite things to photograph.

  • Amy D - My FAVORITE? I love to record my little ones’ childhoods with my camera. And we’re adopting internationally (like you!), and my newest interest is somehow to use my photography passion to advocate for orphans. Not really sure how I could make that work… But that would be my two biggest passions combined!!!

  • Jill E. - i love photographing kids who are just starting to walk because they can move but they are not as slick as those ones that have ton of practice.

  • Lea McFarlin - i love natural light photography. this week, as a friend’s request, i allowed pictures of my daughter and my friend’s daughter to be taken by a photographer who is wanting to start up her own business – so she was willing to take pics for the experience on the REALLY cheap! the most rad thing about my week was when i realized that i know more about photography than the woman who took my daughter’s pictures! i’m so glad i purchased my DSLR and took a class to learn how to use it (i couldn’t get into yours….filled up too fast!)!!!

  • Kimberlee Jost - Besides my kids…food.
    No!
    Food on vacation.
    Even better!

  • Katie - Most rad part of my week has been my 2 month old baby girl’s ever increasing smiles. Love capturing those on photo and sending to the grandmothers.

  • Lisa McCracken - I enjoy taking photos the most of my son, but am just starting to dabble in photography. I got a Canon Rebel for Christmas and am debating on which new lens to buy. There is so much to learn about taking pictures and I read several photography blogs and it can sometimes be confusing. I’m just trying to muddle my through it by trial and error. Your pictures are amazing and I’m really enjoying reading your blog and your hints about Photoshop…which I have and am now just starting to try and navigate.
    My most RAD moment of the week?? My son’s first day of kindergarten yesterday! I thought there would be hesitationa and tears, but he RAN onto the bus and came home saying he had a GREAT day! YAY! And today he ran onto the bus again in anticipation of a new day! Hope today was just as great as yesterday!
    Thanks for sharing your tips. I look forward to reading your blog. Glad a “stumbled” into it! :)

  • Monica - I love photographing faces…the details…close-ups! I have so many pictures of my kids’ faces real close up, looking right into their eyes. I don’t ever want to forget their little looks!

  • Melissa - I love to photograph my kids and the evolution of my home. The most “rad” thing that has happened to me is I got ALL the laundry done!

  • Jonathan A - I enjoy macro photography. Taking something small that is ignored most of the time and making it the focus of the photo.

  • Michelle A - I love photographing any of my family – especially the children playing or candid pics of family interaction.

  • Beth ann - By far, my favorite is my kids (and other kids) doing what they do best, being kids

  • Michelle A - I love to photograph my extended family and my friends. I especially love photographing children. And i love it when i capture candid shots of fmaily/friend/child interaction.

  • lauren - my favorite type of photography [at the moment!] is a really, good, soul-baring portrait. especially of a mother who is frequently hidden behind a camera of her own!
    everyone deserves to have a beautiful photo of him/herself! :)

  • Lisa Box - LOVE taking pictures of my kids doing every day things–takes the ordinary and makes it extraordinary!

  • Maribeth - I love taking pictures of people in my life. After I took your course, the pictures in my camera have started to look more like my mental pictures–capturing what I love best about them.

Way too soon our four kids will be past the young years and all of the little things that occur every.single.day will be a thing of the past. From the morning bananas placed at each child’s breakfast spot to the sweetly snuggled stuffed bunny, Great Grandma blanket, metal airplane, or the Breyer Horse at night … they are all beautiful visual memories of my kids youth. Love those kids! Love those photos!

  • Annie - The raddest part of my week came today. My 8 year old SON read the valiant little tailor and decided he needed to learn how to sew. After some practice, he whipped up a skirt and a shirt for his sister’s doll and is looking forward to doing some “real” tailoring by mending some shorts for grandpa. From a boy who spends his days constructing legos and talking weapons? RAD, I say!

  • lindsey - I love any photography that involves people and the real moments that are happening. That’s what I like to capture – REAL emotion and moments. And a very rad thing that happend to me this week was that I had an opportunity to bless someone financially because we were recently blessed.

  • Shannon(8foot6) - I like taking photos around the house, and of my two year old son…I would love to be able to process them …because I don’t always get it perfect with the camera!

  • Sara - The most rad part of my week…my children began a new school, in a new city, and they LOVE it. At the end of the first day, our 4 year old jumped into the hall exclaiming, “This was the best day, ever!” For a Mama who has struggled with moving my kids 1800 miles from home, starting a new job and choosing their new school – this made my heart sing.

I saved up for a year and just recently purchased my Nikon! I can’t wait to have kids and capture those precious moments as their personal photographer. :) I have had Photoshop for awhile though and I have been looking all over for the Action “Grandma’s Tap Shoes.” My wedding pics were edited using that action and just love the vintage effect!

  • Kaylee Lamothe - I love taking photos of the small things in life, right now I am doing the 365 photo challenge and I am sure Rad Lab would spice up my daily photos a bit! :)

  • Shalihe - I’m not a professional but I love forcing my family and friends to take family pictures. I love seeing them framed up in their houses or in use in some major way. Just the thought of helping them capture a moment in their lives so they could look back and see how much their kids have grow. A RAD thing about this week is that I think it’s pretty rad that I’m able to be able to watch 2 under 2 without my husband this week, well for the past 2 weeks. I don’t know how people in the military do it without their other half for months at a time. and I think your RAD Ashley.

  • Nic - I love lifestyle/action photography. Capturing a person in their most sincere moments gets me at the core – especially mid-laugh, those are the best. The best part of this week is my two year wedding anniversary…Wooo!

  • jenn - kid photography for sure. most rad = finding out one of my besties is having a baby!

  • Melissa - Most rad thing was that my little girl broke through two teeth and started wearing 12m clothes. She is 5.5 months old. What an adorable chunk!

  • Colette L - I love photography, to a fault. I could spend all day messing with old pictures in photoshop, and cease to lead a productive life.

    The most RAD thing that happened to me this week was that we got our wedding pictures back (my husband and I got married a month ago yesterday:))

    The most un-RAD thing about that though is that I am not in love with the pictures. I want to be in love with them, I want to have a handful of amazing pictures from our wedding day to look back on…so in spite of the fact that we blew our meager wedding budget on a professional photographer, I am convinced I can edit the pictures better on my own. And after reading your post on RadLab I am convinced it is exactly what I need to create the pictures I envisioned!!! Thank you for doing this give away Ashley!!

    The most rad thing about my week is that I started student teaching so I get to hang out with 18 totally amazing third graders everyday.

  • Monique - My favorite photography has changed as I have: destinations, then weddings, then babies, and now the everyday family moments. I carry my dslr everywhere, but am often frustrated when my kit lens can’t keep up with my busy toddler in our low-light apartment. I spend a lot of time post-processing, and would LOVE something like RadLab to make this easier!

  • allison d. - I love to photograph my kids the most. They are the most beautiful beings ever! :) But I am a little bias…just a smidge

  • Ada - oh my this is EVERY exciting! my favorite subjects are always some form of child…. I love taking families, children, littles & even babies (although I need more practice). And most especially my own children (5).
    Funny, couple weeks back I had the chance to “work” taking photos at a fancy shmancy car show & some of the celebrities that attend. I thought, “awesome & how every cool” turns out it really showed me I like exactly what I do. Cars are boring & can’t be talked to (even if they are millions of dollars rare) and paparazzi type following around stars, sucks. Feels lame. So, with complete assurance, I like taking children. There :)
    thank you for chance!!!
