How to use Colorhouse presets

Thanks for purchasing presets and profiles built by Colorhouse! We're excicted to have you on board and I want to give you an overview of how I personally use the presets for my own images so that you're able to get off to a solid start in incorporating these into your workflow.

How I use the Cobalt Pack

The Cobalt pack is built to enhance cool tones, so I like to begin by balancing exposure and white balance and then pushing the white balance slightly cooler than neutral as a starting point. Then, I'll hover over the film types and find one that I like as a base. From here, I'll fine tune exposure and move the white balance around to find the right balance of cool and warm tones. At this point, we're done - you can either add grain and deliver the image - or add your own localized adjustments.

How I use the Mojave Pack

The Mojave pack is built to enhance warm tones, so I like to begin by balancing exposure and white balance and then pushing the white balance slightly warmer than neutral as a starting point. I generally will use the preset white balance settings since I like to begin with my tint at zero, changing that part later on. Then, I'll hover over the film types and find one that I like as a base. From here, I'll fine tune exposure and move the white balance around to find the right balance of cool and warm tones. This is where I'll start moving the tint if the image feels too green or red. From here, we're done - and can either add grain and deliver the image - or add our own localized adjustments particular to the image.

How I use the Monochrome Pack

Our monochrome workflow is simpler in that white balance isn't as important here - although we've retained those controls since they will impact the overall image and as a general rule I like to balance my white balance before grading even in black and white. From here we'll get the exposure roughed in and then proceed to hover over the black and white film types to find one we like. Then I'll add grain and a vignette if I feel like I want either - and we're done!
