Nowadays more and more of professional photographers and graphic artists are using the popular app Instagram in their work. The Instagram filters are now famous for their vintage character and perfect colours rendering. The one thing that might limit Instagram use for professionals is relatively low resolution and output quality issues of smartphones. And this is the point where this ultimate bundle of Instagram presets for Lightroom comes to help. We were able to arrange a 36% discount until next Friday. Deal found here: Ultimate Instagram Presets Bundle for Lightroom
This is the most complete package of presets for Adobe Lightroom designed to emulate filters of the popular Instagram app. Two collections Insta-1 + Insta-3 in this one bundle. 35 Lightroom presets in total. So you get all the old and new presets from various versions of instagram.
What is included?
Each preset was back-engineered by a group of digital imaging professionals over a few months to be as similar as possible to Instagram’s filters. They even have the old-school filters like Gotham if you preferred the original filters better from earlier versions of Instagram. Originally these presets were designed for using with normally exposed jpeg/tiff/psd images. Of course, you can apply it to any of your RAW files but the result will be quite unpredictable due to differences in RAW formats which different camera manufacturers have. So they recommend converting your RAW into picture format first. I tested them with RAW files from a Canon 5D Mark III and they worked great.
Insta1 contains the old-school filters such as Lomo-fi, Sutro, Lily, and Poprocket.
Insta3 contains the new-school filters such as Amaro, Hudson, Hefe, X-pro, and Valencia.

After constantly being asked why she wasn’t married yet, photographer and art director Suzanne Heintz took to photography to express her frustrations with being labeled a spinster in our modern times. Go along for a ride with Heintz as she parades around Paris taking photographs of herself with a family that’s not quite what you might expect:
The American based photographer decided to take her family of mannequins on a vacation overseas, where she gathered looks of confusion as curious passers-by watched her pose her husband and daughter in front of famous landmarks before setting up her Canon 5D Mark III on a Benro tripod and using the auto timer function to allow herself to get in on the family portraits.

While this little guy may grow up to be a destructive, dangerous nuisance, here in this moment caught by Sander van der Wel, he’s just a cute, harmless piglet out for a playful romp in the woods:
The photographer was able to get a clean, crisp close-up shot of the wild boar piglet, or as they say in Dutch, the frisling. From the looks of it, the little guy had been foraging in the orange and brown fallen leaves, which provide a beautiful backdrop to the image setting.

Photographing a splash of water can be tricky business. You have to make sure you use just the right amount of light to be able to freeze the water splash without overexposing the background or other elements of the image. Fortunately, Gavin Hoey has taken the time to create the following tutorial which gives viewers the step-by-step breakdown:
Splash photography can be a fun project to sharpen your strobist skills without having to invest in a lot of equipment, it’s also a great project to work on when the weather outside is less than desirable, as Gavin mentions at the beginning of the clip.
The image above is the basic setup Gavin used to capture his awesome splash shot. Nothing too complicated, just make sure you place your speedlight at a nice distance from the background without putting it at risk of getting soaked by water. You’ll also want to make sure you have a nice steady tripod and a remote shutter release–or an assistant to drop the lemon. This gear is essential given the amount of things you will have to be doing simultaneously.
With a little trial and error, you can capture a refreshing splash:
