Colortoning The Community! - Exploring the Enchanted Collection

ursulaschmitz.jpg

A few weeks ago we invited our community over on our Facebook group to submit your before images for some free color grading and chance to be featured on our blog and FB groups.

I went through the files and really loved this image by @ursulaschmitz. As I was playing with our actions I discovered that this would be a great example to show you how the colours of our Enchanted Collection translate on a single image.

When it comes to our photoshop actions we craft each collection to bring a range of palettes to an image changing its vibe and dynamic while also creating some really beautiful tones when actions are layered on top of each other.

So here’s how the Enchanted Collection translates to this beautiful photo.

I’d love to know, which picture/action is your favourite and why?

For anyone else interested in some free color grading, here's the link to submit :) - https://bit.ly/2NgTG5i

Photographer Spotlight: Alana Lee

Photographer Spotlight: Alana Lee

Our latest spotlight is photographer Alana Lee! We first came across Alana's work in our Fine Art Actions group over on Facebook. We were already big fans of her work however once we learnt more about Alana and her story we were compelled to shine a light on this woman who pushes forward and creates beautiful work despite adversity. Alana you inspire us and we can't wait to see more stunning images from you!

Photographer Spotlight: Regina Wamba

Photographer Spotlight: Regina Wamba

Regina Wamba is a photographer who is a person I think everyone should know. From her fantasy work to her book covers, she has a beautiful balance to what she produces. Regina is a member of our community and a personal friend of ours as well. We were curious to see what her views on color were, finding her "voice" with color, inspiration, and how she uses some of our actions! We're always curious on how other artists see the world. 

Photographer Spotlight: Stef King

Photographer Spotlight: Stef King

I'm so honored to be able to interview Stef King today! She's a photographer based out of Australia and she's amazing at everything she shoots. From beauty, fashion, portraits, on-location work, and more, she does it very well. Her sense of color style is gorgeous and when I saw how wonderfully she used our actions, we wanted to hear more about her work and about how she uses the actions in her workflow! 

How Actions Can Help You See Unique Possibilities In Color Toning

How Actions Can Help You See Unique Possibilities In Color Toning

One of the reasons I like color toning actions is because it gives me a starting point in what direction to go. Since I don’t have a precise idea of what I like, it’s a fast and great way to get suggestions on what options are possible! I find my own personal strength to be skin retouching, but the idea of color eludes me unless I have outside references. Here is how I utilize actions as references.
