As a fashion photographer, Mastin Labs presets have allowed me maintain the look and feel of using film while still having the quick turnaround and control I need while in the fashion industry. No other presets I’ve used have been nearly as accurate, and are often too heavy-handed and detract from the image.
I love using Mastin Labs Presets on jobs where I want to combine both film and digital images and I want to give them a cohesive look. Mastin helps me get my digital images looking much closer to my film images with a very simple workflow.
I pulled my photos into [adobe] camera raw and clicked Portra 800 and the craziest thing happened… the images looked like they were shot with Porta 800 film!
I shot film exclusively for a couple of years, and wanted to give digital another chance. If not for these presets I would have given that up long ago.
I love that Mastin Labs is committed to keeping accurate film tones alive in a digital world. By committing to shooting film and digital side by side, digital shooters are being introduced to shooting film, which is awesome! The presets are accurate and minimal, leaving me with clean files that aren’t over-processed.
As I came across Mastin Labs and started using their film presets I could instantly tell that their presets were created by true film photographers.
