Simple, fun packaging is one of the many ways you can set yourself apart from the rest and show your clients you care. Using our Paper Shop packaging, our Packaging Accessories and some details collected from craft stores and our own backyard, we’ve put together an inspiration board that's sure to give you a few ideas for your next portrait order.

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.
