Hi Chris! I really your pictures, especially the colors. Which editing software do you use?

Thanks! Most of the images I post here on tumblr are shot on film and so the colors are a result of the film used (I mainly shoot Kodak Portra 400 and Fuji Pro 400H) and the processing that happens during scanning in the lab. I send all of my film to Richard Photo Lab in Los Angeles. They do amazing work.

I typically process my DSLR photos in Lightroom and my iPhone photos in VSCO Cam.

I tend to favor a less is more approach when it comes to processing — a little contrast, sharpening, and exposure adjustments can go a long way. Presets, when used lightly, can be a nice touch too.
