Named after a crystal that is used to aid those to work in the creative arts, this action will bring light, darkness, and soft violet tones to your pictures full of depth and richness. Unlease your creativity as you explore and design the layers to suit your own creative vision.
Azurite is known for its breathtaking deep, clear blue colouration and for centuries it was used as a blue pigment. You will discover that this action strives to bring that same otherworldly magic to your photographs with cool blue tones and soft hue highlights.
Named after a stone that is considered comforting and which brings light to difficulty, the tones in this action are inspired by the early morning light on cool, crisp winter mornings. Watch as the colours will slip layers of warmth and a soft rose blush over your pictures.
In India, moonstone is regarded as a “dream stone” that brings its wearer beautiful visions during the night. So on that note, we invite you to get lost in the magic that is this action. Let it bring clarity and a depth of blue tones to your pictures. Soft blue highlights against a dark backdrop will allow your subjects stand out and glow.
Legend has it that Aquamarine was a prized possession of mermaids and now its colours can be yours too. The tones in this action vary from green to blue and just as the sea reflects the sky, the colours here take direction from the photo it’s applied to.
Known for its delicate blue colour and highly regarded as a powerful healing crystal, Celestite seemed a fitting name for this action. Here you will find soft blue tones created over layers of considered adjustments. Art is in the details, so follow the adjustments and prompts and see where the colour road leads you!
I am a fine-art photographer based in Oxford, UK. Bringing the world of fairytale and magic to life through my photographs is a passion and colour plays such a huge role in my work. I believe colour toning can help create a mood, an atmosphere, enhance, or draw attention to a picture. It’s an art form and one that I’m learning more about each day. Every action here has been crafted and tested over and over until it is something I’m super proud of and use within my own workflow.
Seeing what working photographers have started to do with my vision has convinced me to keep providing my colours to the world. Pratik and I love to see the many ways our colours are applied across the various genres in photography, from fashion, to beauty, to even food photography. We truly enjoy highlighting your work with our magic on our Instagram and Featured page.
It’s my pleasure to share a little bit of my world with you.
I am a retoucher by trade and owner of Solstice Retouch. I truly enjoy working with Bella to bring her images to life on a daily basis. We complete each other as a couple and as industry creatives. Bella is able to see color in a way that I envy and working with her allows me to refine her vision and package her color work for everyone to take advantage of.
I haven’t seen color work done to this standard through an action before. Seeing the way she plays and pulls colors really excited me enough to come on board and help her share that vision with you. I help create the actions themselves so that they are easy to use and modify to make them yours.
