Shake Up Your Editing Process (& Save Yourself HOURS Behind The Computer)

by D'Arcy Benincosa

How many hours do you spend editing a wedding or shoot? Probably too many, right? In this episode of the Play It Brave Podcast, I present my very first threesome! Erich Mcvey and the geniuses behind Goodlight Presets joined me in a chat about all things film and digital in a world where creativity is queen! This team of top-notch photographers collectively created the presets to end all presets. Hit play to listen into our geeky gear conversation and learn how you can truly save yourself HOURS of computer work.

About Erich Mcvey x Goodlight Presets:

Erich Mcvey is a world renowned wedding, portrait and editorial film photographer with a love for medium format cameras, natural light and incredible scenery.

Erich teamed up with Goodlight in pursuit of creating the most advanced filmic presets and profiles that had ever been made to give all types of photographers the ability to match a variety of classic film stocks at a very high level.

Cody Tolmen and Austin Trenholm have both been wedding photographers for more than 14 years, they understand the  countless hours that can be spent editing. They knew there was a niche in the market for a preset that was more than just a click of a button. They wanted to recreate a preset and invent an entirely new process for color matching that would elevate their work and the industry leaders around them.

Cody and Austin created Goodlight Presets knowing that photographers needed an editing technique that gravitated towards perfect lighting conditions and produced beautiful imagery. 

The most advanced film-inspired presets and profiles!

  • Goodlight presets aren’t striving to make anything exactly match film. Instead they’re making presets that can make each lighting situation throughout a day look as good as possible, inspired by film.
  • Many people love film for the fact that it requires little editing. You just send it into your film lab and it comes back looking beautiful.
  • The landscape of photography is constantly (and quickly) changing. With the retirement of Fuji 400H film stock, quick celebrity turnaround times, and more advanced digital gear, more and more photographers are reaching for their digital cameras – and clients are even preferring the look of digital.
  • Just because digital editing has so much that you can do as far as capabilities doesn’t mean people want to go through the technical editing process. Most creatives don’t like the technical aspect of getting perfect edits – thus the geniuses of Goodlight Presets created these presets (that I use and LOVE).
  • Goodlight presets allows you to have the ease of beautiful photos (similarly to film) with as little editing as possible.
  • There are 12 amazing tools like the auto-upright tool that straightens all the images (one of my favorite aspects of the pack), or the dance floor tool that specifically edits for dance floor lighting.
  • These presets include 15 unique profiles that are so advanced, yet super easy to use!
  • If you’re ready to shake up your editing game and cut down on time behind the computer, then snag your preset pack for $50 off with code PLAYITBRAVE
