VSCO Film

January 09, 2012 / Shoots
Recently some friends of mine released a product called VSCO Film, that was SUPPOSED to emulate the actual look of different film types. I was a major skeptic. I've tried and used every filter and preset known to man. I consider myself to be a photoshop purist. I hate all things actions/filters/presets, etc. But because I liked these guys so much, I decided to look into it more.

Then I was blown away...

This was legit. I couldn’t believe how easily I could get true, real film looks from my Canon 5D MarkII files. I’ve tried before to create my own “film” look from my digital files, but let’s be honest. I never “nailed” it. Well now I can nail it with one click. It’s ridiculous just how easy it is for me now.

Below is my first serious use of VSCO Film. Most of these shots are from a shoot I did just days ago of my friend and country artist, Laura Bell Bundy. I shot the album artwork for Laura Bell’s upcoming album the day before this shoot below. But we wanted to do another more intimate, honest photoshoot in Malibu. I figured VSCO Film would be the perfect editing solution for these photos cause Laura Bell wanted a vintage “Marilyn Monroe Beach” vibe.  Boy, was I right. I absolutely love the final outcome below. I will now be using VSCO Film a LOT more from this point forward.

I also snuck in some recent shots of Jill Wagner (from ABC’s “Wipeout”) and my friend Ryan O’Neal from Sleepingatlast.

Visit their site to learn more about Visual Supply Company and VSCO Film. You won’t be disappointed.

Happy New Year!
