For Christmas this year my grandmother got me a Visual Supply Co. Film Pack for Lightroom. After carefully researching all four of the different packs on various photography blogs, I finally came to the decision that I wanted Film Pack 02, 'The New Classic'. For the past 2+ years I had been using Alien Skin Exposure 3 for all my photo processing. I love Alien Skin, but after all this time I've gotten a bit bored of it. Plus, I use the VSCO app for all my iPhone edits on the go.
Anyway, I love having Film Pack 02. I use it for EVERYTHING! These presets can be used for anything, from wedding portraits to bands promos to landscapes. They are so easy to download and even easier to use; so easy that my dog could use them. And since they're so quick and easy to use, they can cut down your editing time on weddings drastically! (Hallelujah, hallelujah!)
My favorite presets within the pack are Fuji Superia 1600 ++ and Kodak Portra 400 NC ++. When using Lightroom for a quick batch of edits, 90%of the time you can find me using the Fuji Superia 1600 ++ preset. And though they are essentially a set of pre-made actions that edit my images for me, I still ALWAYS tweak the editing to my liking every time.
I am so in love with shooting film. If I had endless money, I would shoot film way more often, but however I am a very broke twenty year old photographer and have to compromise. Maybe some day I can shoot more film, but for now I will continue using this lovely set of presets to achieve the looks that I love!
Below is a very random collection of images I've edited using the VSCO FILM PACK 02. Enjoy!
I'm very happy with my purchase and I really recommend this to ANY photographer - no matter what you shoot, how you shoot, or where you are at in your career. In my opinion, this pack is a 10 out of 10 product! Click the banner below to go pick up a pack for yourself!
