Who’s ready for an adventure?! We are excited to start up a new series this month: The Design Aglow Diaries, where you can peek into our creative world in the studio and beyond. Our Diary kicks off with our big studio move from West Palm Beach, Florida to Portland, Oregon in just a few days. We are going by plane, pod, RV and car….and are sure to have quite the travel adventure with 10 humans, 4 dogs and a cat along for the ride. Join us as we stake out studio spaces, get settled into a new city, visit TONS of food trucks, coffee houses, and undoubtedly a couple of microbreweries too. We’ll be immersed in the Portland culture…(did you know it’s the greenest city in America?) and as we learn, we’ll teach you a few things along the way too. Curious about why we are moving so far or from such a sunny place to such a rainy one? You are not alone….stay tuned for the whole story, friends (and follow us daily with the #designaglow or #designaglowdiaries hashtag). And, be sure to let us get to know you too, on our Daily Blog or our Facebook page.
Want to get to know our team? Ready to be inspired? Or, just want a few more friends? Buckle up and come along for the ride!
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.
