Creating airy pastel photos with A Color Story

Maybe I'm a nerd (and by maybe, I mean most likely), but I REALLY love editing photos. Sometimes I find the process to be just as creative as taking the photos themselves. I'm captivated by the ability to create different looks and moods with a single image.

This morning, I went down a rabbit hole playing with the effects filters in A Color Story- one of my favorite editing apps. It was instigated by their newest effects pack "Skies Over" designed by Jeff Mindell.

2 1/2 hours later of playtime, I decided it would be fun to post some of the results here. Scroll through and use the arrows keys on each image to see the before and after. (Clearly, I was in a pastel mood!)

It got me thinking that it might be fun to teach a class on editing photos with your phone. I know there are already a lot of classes out there about editing alread, but I'd love to know if it's something you'd be interested in learning from me. Let me know in the comments below!
