#AColorStory: New Effects +Pack Glow

April 14, 2017   /   byElsie Larson  / Categories :  Feeds

Hi, friends! I am so excited to introduce my new effects +pack for our app, A Color Story! This is the first pack that I have personally done since the launch of our app last year, and I am so proud of how it turned out.

In past years, I avoided anything but perfectly even lighting, but recently I got a little bored with that and became inspired by playing with light! The inspiration behind my new effects pack came about when I was trying to find creative ways to add light, blur and glow to my photos. I love shooting through crystals, partially blocking my lens with transparent objects, playing with my disco ball during magic hour and embracing harsh, imperfect light.

These lighting situations can be more challenging to capture with a phone than a DSLR camera, so I created a pack of effects that simulates and enhances some of these looks. They blend with your photos. You can turn the effects down for a softer look. And the coolest part about our effects is you can move and rotate them with your finger. So no two photos look the same!

Here are some examples of images made with Glow!

I have been testing these effects for over a month now and there are endless ways to use them, combine them and get creative with them.

And since my favorite part about doing apps is seeing what other people do with them, here are some images created with Glow by one of my very favorite photographers, Arielle Vey.

If you haven’t gotten a chance to download A Color Story yet, you can find that here! And to get my new +pack, just hop over to the shop, find Glow, and hit purchase. We hope you love it as much as we do. It’s SO fun!! Be sure to tag anything you create with #acolorstoryGLOW so we can follow along. xx. -Elsie (+ A Color Story Team)

Simplicity 1463

When I was at Sewjourn in November my friend Kathryn sewed up a gorgeous version of Simplicity 1463.  Since I had some spare fabric with me, I quickly borrowed her pattern pieces and gave it a go as well! There really isn’t much to this pattern. Front piece, back piece, cuffs, neckband. That’s it. It… Continue reading Simplicity 1463
