Hello, my dear friends! I'm updating this blog, since it's honestly been a while. I have been putting in allot of time and effort into a new website and blog. Also, I have been working on many top secret proyects, a couple of weddings and a few workshops. It's been a rough2-3 years. I can only say that my life has changed completly. Completly! It's all good. Please visit this new website, I'm still uploading weddings and editing new weddings. I'm working on a few actions and presets that will be available very soon. More good news to come! Please follow me on Instagram if you arent already, my facebook page is also a great place to visit to stay updated with some of my weddings and sessions and also, a new thing, I started perascoping (@aliciakiddphoto) recently and I honestly like it! It will have to be scheduled scopes because I only have small gaps of free time during the day. But it may work out, who knows! Let's try it out.
This is the image my previous video was about. How I retouched this image. I used Lightroom 5.3, Photoshop CC and Exposure 5. It took me about 2 hours. http://vimeo.com/aliciakidd/maternityshoot

Those that follow me on Instagram know that I have been working on a few interior projects for some time now. I have been shooting interior and exterior of villas, condos and homes that are rented to vacationers in Palmas del Mar. A beautiful resort community in Humacao, Puerto Rico. Major improvements had to be made to my computers' ram as well as storage capacity. Shooting panoramic HDRs for a months on end has made me miss the simple things in shooting digital. The process becomes long, tedious, and draining after a while. BUT, once I get feed back from the company's clients, employees, and CEO, it's all well worth it! Filling their awesome website with my pictures has been so much more than just a job, it has been an honor. As this company grows, I only wish to have the opportunity to stick with 'em and keep shooting their properties for them.
Here’s a little preview. The rest are at www.oceanobeachresorts.com
This is a short story about a girl and her horse, Princeton.
In 2007, I had the opportunity to photograph two love birds. They were just starting their relationship, maybe a few months into it. The chemestry between them was amazing and inspiring. Fast forward to January 2014 an article about their awesome relationship was published a month ago in a lovely printed magazine. The wedding was a very beautiful, romantic and special moment packed with gorgeous and very special people.
I was with them from the very early stages of planning this wedding. The day they visited the location for final planning, the rehearsal day, rehearsal lunch/dinner, getting ready, cremony and finaly the reception. A complete coverage of the day. If you want to see all the pictures visit my website: Alex & Rocio wedding coverage.
This wedding was an absolute joy to photograph. I love these photos, I love this wedding, I love this couple and their family. It was a wonderful night! :)
New branding and workshops webpage. I'm hoping future participants find this website to be very informative and useful.
There will be more seminars, projects and workshops added to site each month. For now, it's up and running! Check iit out! http://workshops.aliciakidd.com Let me know what you think. ;)
I don't normally think, I want to scan this film, clean it up and process my digital files to look like film and then scratch them up. But that's what I did. Good things can come from a little experimenting. And happy mistakes. ;) I had already post-processed all the photos, made the books, while waiting for the books, missed placed the CD and voila, a new post process was born while franticly exporting all photographs again.
In my previous post about my favorite wedding photos, I re-edited a few of them. The few that I didn't get to play with. I enjoyed re-editing "old" photos. By "old" I mean weddings that I shot more than 10 months ago. Once you hand in those photos, you forget about them. I'm trying to go back and revisit those moments, those gorgeous weddings and retouch the best images using new techniques, or little tricks that I've learned along the way. Its fun! You should try it.
This wedding is by far one of my favorites. The fun I had with five cameras is indescribable... I not only used polaroids, 220 film, and digital but I also met some pretty cool people. The ceremony was right on the sand of the hotel in Río Grande and the reception was inside a beautiful restaurant. The food was great, the guests were happy and that made for wonderful pictures! These images are a mix of medium format film and full frame digital processed as color, cross process and black and white.
