How to edit using Mastin Labs Lightroom Presets


A few weeks ago I published a blog posting about how I edit my images with Lightroom Presets. You can read the first of this editing series here to see how I edited with Colorvale presets. However, in this post I am going to show you some before and afters using Mastin Labs presets. I have long heard how much portrait and wedding photographers love Mastin Labs presets and I thought about purchasing them for a long time. So finally I took the plunge and bought a couple of their sets. I will say that I now understand why people love his presets so much. They are simple to use and give your images a clean, bright and classic look. The presets are film inspired and in my opinion are the most natural looking film presets. Often hybrid photographers (those that shoot both film and digital) use Mastin Labs presets because its an easy way to give both their film scans and digital files a seamless and cohesive look. Here are some examples from a senior portrait session that I edited using the Mastin Labs presets. I used the following presets

Porta 400 - N

Fuji 160 - NS - N

Fuji 400 - Neutral
