Digital & Film

Presets designed to feel like snapshots from your favorite romance film.

DIGITAL BASE

This is the starting point and base I use for all of my digital work. It features cool, true to life greens, warm and realistic skin tones, creamy highlights and whites that will stay white. This is my favorite preset to get my digital work to be cohesive with my film.

WARM FILM

Warm film is my go-to preset for making any digital image feel like film. This preset works especially well with light and shadows. It crushes and softens shadows just as film does, while also softening and warming up the highlights. It's a warmer toned preset than Cool Film, and I find myself reaching for this preset most often!

COOL FILM

Cool film is perfect for when you still want the film look, but your photo was taken in cooler lighting or an overcast day. It will also soften and crush the shadows while softening the highlights and adding a subtle blue tint. 

This is my classic black and white preset. Clean, timeless and effortless. I barely ever tweak this preset, it creates the perfect soft yet contrasted black and white every single time. 

B&W 01

Black and white 02 is more of a film-style black and white, with faded shadows, soft highlights and lots of grain for that film-like texture. 

B&W 02

FLASH 01

Flash 01 is a classic, clean flash preset. It keeps skin tones vibrant, pops whites and highlights and fades out blacks. It's my go-to flash preset for weddings and has saved my work time and time again when my flash doesn't want to cooperate. 

Flash 02 is a film-inspired flash preset that I love to use for dance floor shots! Like film, it adds coolness to the shadows, fades them out and adds chunky grain to emulate Portra 800. 

FLASH 02

The perfect skin brush is a tool I use in every single gallery. It removes texture and redness from the skin and is truly the finishing touch for all of my images. 

Sunset boost is a fun tool I like to use when I really want the colors of the sky to pop and give the image a cinematic feel.

"As a wedding photographer who shoots film, these presets are as close to emulating that filmy feel on digital with little to no adjustments. I already know these are going to be my new go to presets - they achieve what I have been trying to edit like in less steps than what I was using before. These are beautiful presets that can be universally used for film inspired images that will absolutely compliment your scans!"

"I’ve been looking for presets that work best with green. I can finally say I found them. I love these presets so much! They are also super easy to use and adjust. I will be using them for all my photos now!"

@ajphotography

"I'm obsessed with the greens!"

"The Nostalgia Pack is a GAME CHANGER! Trying to get that classic look of film can be so challenging and these presets have made it so simple, not to mention that they are identical to how film captures light and adds a specific type of indescribable softness. The skin brush preset made retouching a breeze and gave the skin and image a certain glow without all of the fuss. I’m definitely going to be putting these to use on the regular!!"

Meet Ria - Digital & 35mm Film
Hybrid Photographer

Hi! I'm Ria, the creator of The Nostalgia Pack. I am a hybrid digital and 35mm film photographer who has been in the wedding industry for 6 years. I am drawn to film because it conveys a sense of nostalgia. It's how our parents, grandparents and great grandparents captured their most precious memories and passed them down to us. It forces us to slow down and live in the present and to notice the small moments that make up our lives. I created The Nostalgia Pack for photographers at any level to have timeless presets that can be taken in a cinematic, filmy or classic style direction. I hope you love them as much as I do!
