Hi Alex. Just found your images last week while researching VSCO. I've bookmarked your site because I love your photo stories and composition. My question is, what preset(s) do you use. I particularly like the latest edits and the BMX ride edits. Loving the grainy look and that your images aren't overdone. Eagerly awaiting your next set. Regards, Alan
Thanks a lot Alan, this means a lot to me!
Most of the time I’ll use the VSCO Film 02 plugins as a starting point for my edits. I like the Kodak film simulations the most and choose the one that goes along best with my set of pictures. Then I tweak the look on one of the pictures until I’m satisfied and copy it over to the other files. Now I’ll fine tune each one if necessary so they look alike and voilá, I’m done.
I recommend you try the filters out and see how they look/work and choose one that you like best. I tend to stick with the same filter for a set. Don’t forget, it’s all about the lighting of the subject that makes a picture stand out.
Have fun experimenting!
