>tfw pirated VSCO 1-5 >tfw barely use the instant and classic films >end up buying VSCO 1 because I kinda like some of the options I only supported them because I wanted the updated camera profiles desu. It's best to just buy them when they're on sale or they throw a voucher code your way.
>>2755809 >>2758543 >not if you actually shoot regularly. >this meme needs to die I agree. Especially for people looking for this look who are just starting out.
>Want to shoot colour film for those sick tones >Not going to use AGFA Vista 200 >Have to buy film in bulk to keep the cost per roll down >£3.60-4 a roll >C41 Process only £2-3 per roll (135) >C41 Process only £5-6 per roll (120) >25x 135 rolls = £165~ (900 shots) >25x C41 rolls = £240 (375@6x45)
Factor in the cost of 3 lenses (wide, standard, tele) and a camera for each and you're way over the cost of digital before you get into scanning negs and time required. For a beginner or or most people, buying a 2nd hand or new digital camera and using VSCO is going to be cheaper.
>>2755807 >>2758557 >>2758732 I haven't used VSCO, but I own Color Efex Pro and use it heavily. Yes, I can re-create the effects manually in photoshop, but a dedicated filter program makes it much faster and simpler and lets me browse through various options to find a look that I like for a certain shoot. It also makes it much easier to adjust the filters and make them stronger or weaker in different areas, etc.
I think if you're a hobbyist photographer doing a small number of images with plenty of time, and want to lovingly craft each one by hand, manually doing things in Photoshop is totally viable. However, if you're working on assignment, dealing with large batches, and have deadlines, filter packs are a godsend.
Which VSCO should I try out when I'm completely new? I don't want to overprocess my pictures but I want to add a little something to them, even if I have no idea what the hell I'm doing when it comes to editing yet.
>>2758919 Oh ok, that's a little different I guess. With Nik, you get a bunch of tools that are harder to do as presets (custom grad filters, "virtual lighting" where you can control angle and falloff and stuff, etc.), but if it's just straight up presets, it seems a little pointless.
I just downloaded VSCO and in each folder I have: Develop Presets, Local Adjustment Presets, and Camera Profiles.
I can't figure out how to get the Camera Profiles to work. Where do I put them? I'm on a Mac using Lightroom 5. I put them in the CameraRaw folder in a folder called CameraProfiles and they don't show up.
