Two of my most used presets in a good to go way
Back in february i did a little write up on 2 of my most used presets on DKFUJIX site, a danish website for the awesome pure danish group for Fujifilm X users, i decide to copy it over here and in a more broad language to share with you.
Has for some years used Lightroom and have been satisfied, primary because i was a Nikon user and the files were as they should be. When I switched to Fujifilm, I thought generally that the files were not as they should, color and sharpness, just was not as I wanted, it ended up that I looked at Phase One’s Capute One Pro 7 at that time, today we are into the amazong version 9 thougt i still use version 8.3.4 Capture One is my primary RAW converter where LR is to catalog, because I still had the catalog there.
Lightroom is still with me but mostly as a catalog and then because i got these awesome presets from VSCO and Archipelago. These are film presets that are reasonably close to the film back from a time that is not quite forgotten, click on the link and take a closer look on them. Archipelago is made from the persons behind Looks Like Film who also have Facebook group VSCO FILM USERS. I have fallen totally for their series Loren X Chris they fit well and that I’ve created a custom I will share with you which is color. Likewise VSCO who is up for 7 Packs now, thought pack 6 is my to go pack and is divided into two units, Tungsten and Push & Pull, it is from the Push & Pull series I made a black and white preset from which is based on Tri-X.
A update since the write on DKFUJIX.
Im still using CO 188.8.131.52 yes total lazy of me not to upgradet to version 9, well it would happen i may when im back home from Iceland. Lightroom is still my prefered catalog, just love that when im done with sessions i import RAF and Tif files into a catalog and can later on do a re’edit if i like with VSCO or Archipelago, yes i know its lazy to that i not use CO for catalog, but mayby one day.
