Photography is my passion. I do not only take wedding photos but also do portraits, landscapes, and street photography. This section represents my perspective on how I see the world through the lenses.

Fuji Pro - My Favorite Preset for Wedding Photography

Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.
— Leonardo da Vinci Read

Finding your styles is very common words to here when people give you a suggestion to be an artist.

"THEY TALK LIKE I CAN FIND THOSE IN WALMART OR TARGET."

I talked to myself that I needed to set up my editing style after a couple of years shooting wedding. I used to adjust all the color and light on my own because I believe being artist is something has to come out from you and you only. Silly Nat, he did not know much at all that time.

2015, I found myself into MANY group of wedding photographers. I dipped myself deep into wedding photography industry. Professional wedding photographers have very consistent style. I looked back to my works and I was like, OH NO!

Jeremy Chou has amazing portfolio. He is a wedding destination photographer. This guy style is very airy pastel look. I WANT THIS PRESET.

In character, in manner, in style, in all things, the supreme excellence is simplicity.

Fuji Pro 400H Neutral

I FOUND THID PRESET FROM MASTIN LABS AND IT COSTS $99.

Hell NO! I wouldn't not spend that much money on one preset. That was what I thought. I WAS WRONG AGAIN.

A month after, I shot a wedding and my lovely clients give my a tip for $80!! 
That night, I got Fuji Pro from Mastin Labs. I understood why this preset costs $99. My photography has been changed since then.

Fuji Pro 400H Neutral

The best way to explain about Fuji preset is when you want your pictures to be outstanding in very simple ways.

Fuji Pro preset comes with 3 type of Fuji film, which are Pro 400H Neutral, Pro 400H Blue, 160NS. I use a lot of 160NS because of pastel green of the preset. You can also control noise, highlight, shadow, and lens collection of the preset. Therefore, I can see why these presets have reasonable price. THEY ARE WORTH FOR THE PRICE.

Wedding, bridal, engagement, graduation, baby, name it, I've using these presets for a year and love it. Bright sunlight and trees are great fit with Fuji presets. 

After a year of using, I have many clients come to me because of my style, Fuji style.

Consistency creates signature.

I also use Kodak Gold 100. Y'all can check out more detail about Kodak Gold 100 by clicking here!
