Catherine Guidry

About four or so years ago, I began shooting film. I attended several workshops lead by photographers such as Jose Villa, Caroline Tran and Jonathan Canlas and soon after a member of the Richard Photo Lab family! <3 It has been SO much fun learning and SUCH a challenge…but without a doubt, film helped me to find my voice!

Earlier this year, I interviewed Caroline Tran for the Mistakes Make Magic Podcast where she discussed her newest endeavor, making her digital work look more like film! She was shooting with her new fuji addition…the medium format body, an adapter for her Zeiss lens and toying around with the creation of her very own presets.

I gave her a little push to create the film presets in a way that others could buy them as well! By the time I ran into her at WPPI this year, she succeeded at this and has since released her presets to the public for purchase!

I tested out the presets in full force for the first time this year at the Inspire Design Workshop. Almost everything I shot in digital I shot in film and vice versa. Below are a few of the images side by side. I’ll tell you what. I will allow you to guess as you scroll through the images which is digital and which is film. And at the very bottom of this blog post…I’ll reveal the answers.

Also, if you’re interested in purchasing the presets you can do so HERE! <<—Click this link to get more detailed information!

In every side-by-side comparison, digital is on the left and film was on the right! Were your guesses correct?!

If you too are interested in having your digital work look more “film like” I highly recommend THESE PRESETS BY CAROLINE TRAN!! (I use the refined signature set for Lightroom and am an affiliate for this product.) 🙂 If you have any questions please let me know!!
