Kelsey // San Diego // Bright Pack & Film Pack

Sara LouComment

Kelsey and I met up in San Diego for another portrait session. We walked around North Park shooting in harsh sunlight in various locations. Once sunset hit we drove to a local Carnival for some darker portraits.

I edited the images from Kelseys shoot with our Bright &Film & Neon Pack & Our Retouching Actions. I used a variety of packs because we were at a variety of locations. You can view all the products used on this shoot in our SHOP

Alanna // San Diego Bright Pack

Sara LouComment

Alanna and I wandered around the North Park District of San Diego for a portrait session. We started our shoot an hour before sunset to get some softer lighting. We moved to a beachside location right at sunset to get some warmth in our images.

I edited this session with our Bright Pack & Film Pack and our Retouching Actions. You can view all our products used on this shoot within our SHOP

Alanna // Laguna Beach // Editorial Pack

Sara LouComment

Alanna and I met up in Laguna Beach at one of my favorite locations. We shot an hour before sunset and I used my Nikkor 35mm 1.4 lens. I shot this session slightly underexposed to maintain sharpness and to achieve an almost gritty look when I bump up the exposure and apply my presets.

I edited this session with our Editorial Pack. Before apply the presets I adjusted my white balance and exposure. Then I applied the presets. Our Editorial Pack is my most used Presets/ACRs for editing my Instagram posts. They are reminiscent of analog film and have squashed highlights, mild film grain, and a boost in vibrancy. They are great for portraiture, weddings, engagements, editorial, and street photography. You can view this pack with before and afters within our SHOP

Lauren // Laguna Beach // Editorial Pack

Sara LouComment

As a photographer/editor/designer my looks for photographing/editing are always changing. I made our Instagram Pack because I recently made new presets which have been my go to for all my recent shoots. I wanted to make these available to all our customers. This pack has 10 Presets & 10 ACRs as well as a tool kit to help make minor adjustments.

These are best used on outdoor photo shoots or indoor flash photography. Our Editorial Pack is reminiscent of film with a mild film grain which can be easily removed/reduced.

I met up with Lauren in Laguna Beach at my favorite little vintage diner. I used my 35mm Nikon 1.4 lens and my Nikon SB-500 Speed Light to achieve the best lighting. I pointed my flash directly up to bounce the flash off the ceiling and achieve a softer look.

I then applied our Editorial Pack ACRs to my favorite images. You can view this pack in our SHOP
