actions!

Since getting photoshop I've played around with some actions here and there and usually felt disappointed with how they never really seemed to nail the look I was going for, y'know? I'm totally not the most experienced with photo editing or anything, but I knew what I wanted--something subtle with interesting punches of light and color. And even though my luck with actions in the past usually left something to be desired, when A Beautiful Mess came out with their actions I sprung for 'em and I'm so stoked I did--I decided to go with the signature collection and I'm pretty sure I'm gonna eventually snag their folk collection too! The best part about their actions is how you can have control over multiple aspects of whatever particular action you choose. I'm allll about options ya'll.

here's some photos I re-edited with the collection:
