As many of you know, a few years ago I was a busy wedding photographer. I was desperately searching for a way to streamline my editing process with a cohesive starting point for all of my images, and my own presets weren't really my style any longer. Starting as a film photographer, I knew I loved the look of film, but wasn't sure how to create that look on my digital images. Then, I found Mastin Labs. Using their film presets gave me a starting point for all of my editing, and it saved me so much time in the long run.
So, when they announced a few years ago that they had created Filmborn, a way for me to create images on my phone using their film presets, I was sold.
Filmborn not only allows you to edit images you've already taken on your phone, but it also serves as a camera app! I LOVE using this because you can have a live preview of your image with their preset WHILE you manually control your focus, exposure and white balance! You can control the aspect ratio of your images as well as create your own personal custom camera kit so you can quickly access the settings you use most for different photography purposes (like portraits).
One of my favorite tools when using Filmborn is custom curves -- this gives you SO MUCH MORE flexibility when editing your images instead of just using an exposure/highlight/shadow/contrast slider.

Hands down, this app has been amazing for me. I'm able to create images with my phone on the go that I might not have previously shared on social media. And, if you're an influencer, small business, or brand that wants a way to create new visuals for your social media in between your professional photography shoots, this just might be the answer for you!
This app is currently only available for iPhone users, but if you have an iPhone, I 100% recommend you buy it! (FYI - this is not a sponsored post, I just love the app!)
I hope you have fun playing with this app as much as I do!
