We've said it before, and we'll say it again: people are over the moon about their Big Picture Planners! With a 100% customizable format, you can start planning with The Big Picture on any day you wish, with a fresh design that allows you to fill in your own dates for 2014 and beyond. Melanie of M.M. Hewitt Photography shares, "I love The Big Picture Planner. It helped me realize/re-realize why I take photographs and get back to my photographic roots. Not only that it makes me accountable for each image I want to create by helping me see it through from concept to shooting to processing to the final fine art printing. I used to jot down my ideas for images in a little notebook and then I would never see them again. Now I don't lose my ideas and so many of them have already turned into images that are hard core contenders for my portfolio. This planner is perfect for EVERY photographer who has goals they want to accomplish. The Big Picture Planner was so easy to customize. I was able to change the client workflow page to an image workflow page so that I can keep track of where I am through the creation of an image for my fine art portfolio. I also updated the client contact page to a gallery contact page, to include gallery director's name and their preferred process for portfolio submission. All of this will help me to keep track of images and galleries in getting my portfolio ready for submission." Thanks for sharing, Melanie!

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.
