Sometimes with running a photography business, time slips by and you find yourself in a bind for your own photo gifts to family members. Jessie of J.Passon Artistic Portraiture shares how she used the Accordion Album Collection: Visual Poetry to create her own unique Mothers' Day gifts,Â "Running a business and being a mom of two little girls and a baby, time is precious. As yet another holiday quickly approached, I was trying to think of what quick yet thoughtful gift to send to their grandmothers for Mother's Day. Taking a cue from my clients who have given these as gifts in the past, I decided to do a mini accordion along with a mounted 5x7 print of my three daughters together. Of course the first place I went was my Design Aglow files and right to my Visual Poetry template set. I love how simple yet elegant the designs are and they are so easy to customize! I have one client who has ordered mini accordions from each session to give as gifts and I think it is such a great idea.I pride myself in being a photographer that only offers high quality products that I myself would purchase and the mini accordion with a customized template is no exception! Thank you so much for making templates that are great for professional and personal use--myself and my clients thank you!" Thank you so much for sharing Jessie!

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.
