What are you afraid of fellow creatives? Do your fears live in the external world? Say long-legged, hairy spiders? Or walking through a dark room in the middle of the night?
Perhaps your anxieties are internal? The fear of failing at that which is most dear to you? Or the terror of living with regrets that can never be remedied?
Whether your fears are external or internal or a combination of both, the remedy is easily obvious: courage. However, finding the strength to BE courageous will take every ounce of your being.
The inspiring Nelson Mandela said, “I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.”
You might have to dig deep within yourself to quell that anxiety. Perhaps, you will need resources. Fearless Photographers is one of those supports that photographers worldwide can turn to for strength.
“My overall goal is to push other photographers to be the best people they can be." Says founder Huy Nguyen, "I am working on that myself, and I believe that we can all help one another by working together as a community. Furthermore, Fearless Photographers promotes a bold and distinctive approach to wedding photography. It’s an attitude of putting our fears and hesitations aside to work hard and make meaningful, powerful images for every client! For couples who care deeply about photography, wedding images are far more than pretty pictures. We want to connect those couples with inspired photographers who can create the breathtaking images they’re dreaming of.”

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.
