A good night's sleep made all the difference in the world. We woke up in our Dallas hotel refreshed and rested. Headed to Northpark Center for a stroll and breakfast (and Starbucks. Of course). Northpark Center is really interesting; it's a mall that's also an art museum. Once we left Dallas we were out into the great emptiness (with trains!). Walked around a bit at the [closed for the evening] New Mexico Welcome Center. (This is my only "new" state for this trip.) Stretching is always good, but holding hands is my favorite way to relax. The sun started to go down as the landscape started to change. At first it was blinding, but ended up being beautiful. And we found a gas station sitting by itself right off of the interstate, hawking Route 66 mementos and sporting ancient gas pumps (with the clicking numbers and retro styling-- wait, vintage, not retro). It was also the local general store... and the post office. Made it Albuquerque just in time to collapse into bed. Exploring tomorrow! xoxo Emily, Pogo Photo Remember to follow the #designaglowdiaries hashtag to see our adventures!
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.
