Welcome to Zoom-Foto

You've no doubt landed here as part of a journey. It starts with the quest for knowledge or inspiration and ends generally with a few choice words with our good friend Google. Words like "camera" and "lighting", combined with "how'd they do that ..." and "how can I do that ..." will land you here. Take heart my friends. I can show you "how'd they do that" - and how you can too.

And this is where our paths cross and we begin our journey together. I have trod the path of 'avid photographer' for years. I have searched for hours for 'how to photograph water drops' and marveled at the perfection of other people's beautifully poised single sparkling drop. I have stood for far too long in the cold to capture that one moment of swirling snow when the air appears to sparkle. And I confess with guilt that beautiful wild horses in the Icelandic hills just had to be photographed at the expense of my very patient traveling companions.


We have all been there - somewhere where the distractions of life are left behind and we exist in the moment. Camera in hand, subject just there. And nothing else. Call me obsessed, call me a little crazy, and you might have captured my dedication to documenting that moment.
If you get this - if you've been there - then join me as I follow the path of avid photographer. Let's learn a lot of photo tech, share our inspiration and produce fantastic shots!

Florabella Collection: Photoshop actions, textures and frames


As an avid photographer I could not help but become also an avid digital editor.  Mix in a little of the perfectionist and some minor control issues, and I could easily while away the whole night transforming and tweaking until the latest photos fit the picture in my mind.

Photoshop is my trusty partner and Photoshop CS5 is a dream!  Double that sentiment when I discovered Photoshop actions.  This simple concept allows you to record actions and apply to one or multiple other digital images with one click. 

Naturally, as any self-respecting Photo Geek would do, discovery of Photoshop actions led to googling into the wee hours.  And naturally, this led to the discovery of Florabella Collections.   This site is a true inspiration with a wide choice of Photoshop and Photoshop Elements actions, textures and frames.  Sample before and after shots are a visual feast with creative composition and stunning transformations.

You will realize, as I did, that being the new owner of one of the Florabella Collections is a worthy cause, and a very good reason to get out your credit card.  I am now the very satisfied owner of the Florabella Luxe II Photoshop Actions collection ... and the proud owner of some once drab photos that now look quite stunning!
