How to Edit With Portra Original
Portra Original is warm and neutral, containing three film emulation presets. Here's a breakdown of the look of each individual preset.
Mastin Labs 3-Step Workflow:
Say goodbye to hours of tweaking. Make consistency and freedom, yours. By using this workflow you will get clean, true-to-color images both you and your clients will love.
- Apply the preset: This applies a color pallette and micro-contrast to an image.
- Adjust Exposure: Exposure often needs to be increased as most cameras try to protect highlights on Auto. Exposure tames the contrast alone with Tone Profiles.
- Adjust white balance and tint: This step dials-in perfect skin tones and fixes white balance/tint biases per camera. Most cameras don't get this right with Auto White Balance, and learning white balance adjustments fixes this.
