My presets are based on the images I see floating around in my head, pulled from memories and emotions from traveling. My black and white preset is based from my days in the darkroom and a heavy dose of inspiration from photojournalists of the 1980’s. My black and whites have become one of my most trademark looks. For my color editing, I always like to create a strong consistency of color and tone across the entire wedding day when editing, so my main preset (Jupiter) has been designed to work across the entire day, from daylight to direct flash.
The three other color presets have been designed for when I really want to play on the color and tone, to help evoke a particular mood or feeling or when I really want to show the atmosphere of a space. They play on my love for underexposure and are a mix of graininess, low contrast, cool and brown tones, made after spending a week getting lost in Tokyo.
