Didn't get what you wanted from Santa? Well, buy yourself something that will enhance both your productivity and the ambiance of your studio.
We *just* received our beautiful new Illy espresso machine with the Illy a case home delivery program and are completely smitten with our little X5 machine. Could we adore Illy any more, with its sublime taste, simple technology, outstanding selection of colors, and now the ultimate service for the busy artiste....monthly home (i.e. studio) delivery? I think not.
We know that a little espresso in the afternoon makes that editing go a little bit quicker, but does offering your clients a latte and a biscotti increase happiness and sales? What do you think?
As photographers, we’re always on the lookout for new tools that will make our workflow faster and easier (while making our images look their best), and when we found Mastin Labs’ film presets for Lightroom, specifically Fuji Pro, Ilford B&W and Kodak Portra, we knew we had hit gold!
We downloaded and installed all three, and watched the included Getting Started tutorials Edit Your First Image and Using Tone Profiles that hold your hand and walk you through the presets and how they work.
The presets are incredibly easy to use, and quick to apply. And, we love that they are designed to replicate the films that we have known and loved.
