VSCO FILM For Lightroom | For Wedding Photographers

Many of my friends, photographers, and followers had noticed some subtle changes to the look of my photography over the last year. Last season I adopted a new tool into my wedding photography post production workflow; VSCO Film for Lightroom 4. There are actually two versions of VSCO Film (1 & 2), and I have…

    extremely well put together advice! so useful even for someone who’s been using VSCO for a while like myself.

    Cracking review – love using VSCO!

    Thank you.

  • KellynMarch 25, 2013 - 12:19 pm

    Could you recommend one over the other? Thanks!

  • JamiesonMarch 31, 2013 - 12:23 pm

    They’re both great, and I’ve now had the chance to play with the new VSCO 3 as well. I actually prefer the original the most. I like them less as new versions are released, but that’s more to do with the fact that they’re becoming a bit more over the top with each release, and the more common films were present in the original. What I would like to see is some more slide films; Provia, Ektachrome, etc.

    Really insightful stuff, thank you. I’d struggled to get a consistent look throughout the entire 8 hours of wedding photography, from daylight to tungsten in the evening but your idea of thinking in terms of different film stocks for different parts of the day is, quite simply brilliant!

    The Kodak Portra 800++ photo is mesmerising!

    Cheers, Graham.

    I’m so glad I stumbled upon your blog! Thank you for taking the time to share your knowledge and opinion of VSCO. Your images are lovely to start with and VSCO compliments them nicely!

    Great article, but most of all I love that you shared this with other photographers. When we improve the industry we improve as individuals. Keep it up!

    Hi! Thank you so much for all this information! I’m just starting out as a photographer and I’ve been playing around with VSCO’s app trying out different presets, but I know I’m going to get the VSCO Film someday soon. Thanks for sharing all the sample images too.

  • Great info. Right now I’ve created a preset based on some old film scans but I cant decide if I like it or not. Lol. Vsco has been kind of ‘taboo’ but I’m thinking about the black and whites specifically and may give some a shot. I love Niks Silver but I cant seem to find anything like that. Thanks for the info!

Marina & Daniel’s Wedding Photography

Toronto wedding photography is my main area, but sometimes wedding photography takes me outside of Toronto. In this case, I was a Toronto wedding photographer in Niagara on the lake. My assistant and the mother of the groom were in a different country for part of it. I’ve been looking forward to blogging Marina &…

    Very cool and sleek design to your website. Did you do it yourself? As a photographer in Toronto I’m always evaluating the work of other Toronto photographers, and I’ve got to say I’m impressed with every aspect of your website, Jamieson!

Jamieson & Colin Working in Old Montreal

Last year Colin, Carla and myself all went up to Montreal to shoot Priya & Anup’s engagement session. Carla quietly captured video of us working. Now Colin and Carla have produced this promo video of us shooting! For those who don’t know Colin & Carla are two close friends that I’ve worked with for years….
