The Portra Pushed presets have given my digital files a level of quality that I did not think possible. After years of experimenting with a seemingly endless amount of variables to make my digital images look more like Kodak Portra film. This comprehensive and accurate set of presets has succeeded in doing what I always wanted yet failed to do. That is to make my digital images look exactly like my negative photo scans. Just like I “push” my Kodak Portra film, these presets do precisely as advertised by giving results that are uncannily like those of their celluloid counterpart. Moreover, the Mastin Labs presets give me consistency over all of my digital photos. They free me from the monotony of having to meticulously adjust every setting manually. They’ve also become indispensable to my workflow because they provide me with a baseline for the images that need extra attention. Nonetheless, my RAW and jpeg files have never looked better. Thanks to these presets, and as far as film emulation goes, Mastin Labs has got it right; whether you are a beginner or professional, these presets are an excellent springboard and tool for better editing and achieving photo film results.
I pride myself in having clean matte looking photos and had no idea how muddy some of my edits were until I started using the Portra Pushed presets. Absolutely perfect matte film look without destroying color or simply turning up the grain. I love that all presets from Mastin edit the highlights and shadows separately in different presets rather than using the “one size fits all” preset that others use. Overall, I’m really impressed with other's work I’ve seen in the Mastin Labs community group top. Obviously, Mastin is doing something right!
I love them, they make everything beautiful, and are easy to adjust in lightroom as well as photoshop. Thanks again!
I use presets to streamline my workflow and to cut my editing time. As a wedding photographer, I have to process huge quantities of images and using quality presets by Mastin Labs makes it much easier. Thanks Kirk for developing such a great product! Vancouver Wedding Photographer Dëmin
