I remember reading about pushing film and it sounded like something that was really difficult to do. But with most things that has to do with film, it’s not that hard. It’s just different from digital files, not better, not worse .. different. You can read more about it in this blogpost on the Mastin Labs blog.
I always liked the look of pushed film. It has a different effect than adding exposure on digital files. It gives you more contrast, better colours. I always pushed my film just to make it pop more.
I have been using Mastin Labs presets for a long time. I got all three packs and love the -mostly- one click solution to make my images look better. And now even better, because today Mastin Labs released their latest pack: the Pushed Portra Preset Pack.
The pushed Portra preset pack does what the Portra pack does .. but better.
All these images were processed with the new pushed pack because I got the chance to try them before they came out today. I'll post more in a few days.
Already curious? Try them by following this link to learn more about it and when you decide to buy I get paid a bit which will help me to get back into using real film again, side by side with Mastin Labs presets.
