Welcome to my colorful world of airy light, moody colors, and delicate tones. My world of color is a little bit different with a variety of unique colors to choose from that will make your photos standout beautifully, with soft, hazy, creamy, vintage, colorful, black & white airy tones...through the beauty of nature, places, or portraits.
With a heart of passion and a mind of effort and dedication, I've incorporated a variety of resources for various audiences, whether you're looking for photoshop actions, tutorials, textures, or free stock imagery.
I am overwhelmed with a natural desire to take the time and effort to help photographers and digital artists improve their work as they learn new techniques as easy as possible, because the world is a beautiful place of endless ways to express creativity, and nobody should feel defeated for any reason to give up on their creative potential, whether you have a desire to achieve the appropriate color personality for your photography, or blend multiple images into a magical scene.
There are several different action styles and workflows that are out there, but with my easy-to-use workflow, you have a lot of flexibility and possibilities at very affordable prices. My actions and individual layers are given unique names; the Main Actions are what I refer to as 'full effects,' because they include their own unique contrast/color adjustments, and they are grouped into individual folders, which can be stacked and blended with one another. This would mean that with just a small set of three actions, you can multiply the results by blending the actions with one another depending on the environment of your photos.
Most importantly, there are various layers to tweak and adjust as you desire, making the workflow non-destructive. Group folders can be duplicated to double the effects instantly, and lowering or boosting folder or layer opacity helps control the intensity of the effects. Instructional actions are included in every set with my basic workflow instructions to ensure that you comfortably get the feel of my style and workflow.
Perhaps I'm a little old-fashioned or just simply behind on the Lightroom Preset community, because I've intentionally dedicated an endless amount of time trying to perfect my photoshop action style and workflow. But now that I feel satisfied with my actions, I will spend more time creating my soft, airy, creamy action style in the form of Lightroom presets.
My childhood friend, Lindsay, chose the name Night Fate for me in July 2005 via deviantART, as we sat her computer with a terribly slow dial-up connection, deciding what username would work. Night Fate was perfect because it really suited me at the time, considering my quiet, darkish, peaceful, emotional teenage mentality. And now I've transformed the name into something that I never imagined back then, having originally launched my own website in late 2012; and ever since it's been transformed drastically to suite a modern, quality look.
The year 2005 was also the year that I picked up my first digital point-&-shoot camera and found a love for photography. I spent my time outdoors learning to become more social to the world around me as I stepped out of my dark cave-like room; and then I fell in love with color and light as I learned to incorporate it into my photo-manipulations and nature photography.
I had originally started out by providing stock photography on my old stock account, as well as creating tutorials for photo-manipulations and providing photoshop actions that I made with love and dedication with all of my free time, starting in September 2007. To make a long story short, I was known for the many free sets that I had offered...a little over 140 action sets ranging from 5-12 actions each.
Although my workflow was destructive at the time where everything was flattened and merged together, everybody was in love with my effects, and sadly I didn't realize the value of photoshop actions. I just made them because it was fun to share my creativity and express myself through color. But then a few years later it happened where I had to do what was right for myself---where I had stop selling myself short. And now here I am with better quality products to offer after an endless amount of trial and error because of the perfectionist that I tend to be with my resources.
I was born in Las Vegas and then adopted and happily raised in Utah where I broke away and went on a journey to find the missing pieces of my life through deep thought, science, and the endless possibilities of the the amazing world that exists within and all around...in every thought, every breath, and every heartbeat.
My photography and creativity made sense to me after finding my biological parents after twenty-two years of questioning and wondering about life and what made me who I am, biologically and creatively speaking. Reality hit me at once, making me feel confident and full of life.
I am from everywhere right now: California, Utah, and Virginia. I dwell in a world of light, color, and capturing all the little moments. I am in love with photography, writing, science, traveling, food, kittens, cupcakes, hot soup, green tea, ice cream, gelatos, and chocolate. I'm a bit of everything: I like to enjoy the moment with wine, beer, maybe a couple of shots, or sweet cocktails----whatever my creativity desires. I am a super chill, friendly, down-to-earth girl who lives in peace and harmony. I want to inspire and express my true hidden creativity from within. And it's there and it's waiting for me to push myself out there---out there beyond the invisible comfort zone.
Important: all stock photography and nature photography is by me, whereas 99.9% of the portrait photos are by a few contributors mentioned in the descriptions of any products that use their imagery as previews.
