Refined and Caroline Tran came together to create a collection of presets designed to work across all genres of photography. Caroline is a fine art wedding, portrait, studio and commercial photographer that shoots both digital and film for all of her work. She has brought 10 years of hybrid photography experience and knowledge to the design of this preset collection to create a set of effortless presets that blend seamlessly across all avenues of your work. Refined x Caroline Tran includes 3 unique color presets allowing you to match a variety of film stocks and edit consistently with varying lighting situations, while maintaining luminous skin tones, rich greens, and film inspired color tones. Patina is rich with depth and warmth and works well with Portra films scans or a pushed Fuji film scan with rich greens and warmer skin. Pure is a soft delicate clean preset perfect for studio work, or more natural film scans and is a user favorite when paired with Blush Tone. Serene is ideal for a washed or monotone look, but doubles as a tungsten light neutralizer for those warm indoor images. Refined x Caroline Tran also includes a rich BW film inspired BW preset and a classic Sepia Tone.
We believe in the power of consistency and that is why we are now including the Refined x CT Mobile presets with the desktop collection. This allows you to edit your behind the scenes, travel photos and sneak peeks quickly in the palm of your hand and maintain the artistic integrity of your portfolio on all of your social media accounts. Refined x CT Mobile is a carefully designed set of presets made for quick instant editing of mobile/drone images in the Lightroom Mobile App.

“I'm a little embarrassed to admit how many presets I bought before Refined was created. I could never find a pack of presets that would actually work on ALL of my images. I wanted my work to be consistent, but I would find myself bouncing around from preset to preset for each session hoping one would work on that particular series of images. I shoot in a variety of locations - in hospitals, client's homes, different outdoor locations, and my all white studio - all VERY different settings, colors, and lighting situations. It would be asking a lot for a set of presets to work in every situation. But Refined does. "
“The presets work in every lighting condition, are a breeze to match to our film. They give our digital photos the "timeless" film look we are seeking. Since using them our look has become more cohesive and consistent, all things we strive for in branding! It's been reflected back to us in the new bookings that we have received that our clients are also very happy with updated look and style of our photos. Brighter, cleaner, and more classic!!. "
""I have been using Refined presets for almost a year and they have been one of the best investments yet in my business! I am a digital and film photographer, so to find the right preset can be quite the task. I have purchased and played around with other presets but nothing is as good as Refined. Matching your film scans can be daunting but with Refined, its actually enjoyable! The skin tones turn out so delicate and pretty without having to make multiple tweaks"
