Got the shot

Recently I’ve had a few questions about how I’ve taken some of my photographs for instagram and twitter, and then how I’ve edited them. So I thought I’d go through some of my images from a recent trip to Berlin and explain the process behind them. I shoot most of my digital photographs on a Nikon D3200 with the Nikon hacker firmware installed, usually using a 35mm f1.8 or an old minolta 50mm f1.8 – Then the film photograph shown here is shot on an Olympus OM30 with a 28mm f2.8 using really really cheap Agfa Vista 200 film. It’s a pound a roll, so cheap.

All but one of the photographs above are digital – and they realistically have very little editing done to them. I like to edit the colours of images – which is why I mainly just use the film presets from VSCO in my work. I don’t often like changing features in the image – or add in unrealistic ones. I prefer the thought that maybe someone one day will point a camera in the exact some way and get the same image. There’s something somewhat poetic about that in my head.

Anyway – aside from my strange ramblings, here’s the presets I used on the above images. If you fancy the style of the colours you see be sure to go check out Film Pack 2 from VSCO!
