5 film inspired presets based off of the Fuji 400h . 1-5 collection but with added vibrance, contrast and depth for a bold, editorial look. You’ll love the built in grain, texture, and richness this set will bring to your images.
Designed to evoke the classic look of slow shutter reception images, the ambient set was designed to bring the grain, texture, and sophistication of film to your low or ambient light indoor and outdoor photography.
Providing you with natural reception edits, these presets quickly pull just enough of the extra warmth and mixed light from your photos while giving your flash imagery an editorial quality.
Ensuring editing consistency on all platforms and photography devices, the mobile preset collection coordinates seamlessly with KT’s Fuji 400h color presets and profiles. Enjoy beautiful lifted shadows, soft pastel tones, and built in grain and texture right from your Lightroom Mobile app.
“These are a by far the most incredible presets I’ve ever owned!! Not muddy, no tweaking needed...just clean, beautiful filmy goodness! 😍 I have no doubt my editing workflow will be a breeze now that I’ve found these.. "
“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'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. "
""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"
