Mastin Labs Kodak Everyday Pack Review

Updated for 2020/2021

Mastin Labs has been key to my work over the last few years. They’ve put out a great product and I’m happy to review these presets for free. Mastin Labs is what I use on 99% of my wedding and portrait work. It’s a set of film based presets that help me replicate the look of certain film stocks I’m partial to. My all time favorite is Kodak Portra 400. While I still love shooting film in my free time, when it comes to weddings digital is just a better work flow for me. But I can still gain that same look of film through these presets. The newest offering from Mastin Labs replicating, Ektar, Gold and Tri-X…they’ve aptly named it the the Kodak Everyday Pack

It’s a 3 pack set of which my favorite is Ektar with it’s bright contrasty tones. Super for landscape and travel photography, but also versatile enough for weddings as shown below.

Here’s my quick and dirty review of each:

Ektar: I love this for sunsets or bright landscapes. It really makes color pop and absolutely kills it during sunset. Not my favorite for people though. If I use it on portraits I make sure to dial it back on the contrast and decrease the warmth a bit.

Gold: Honestly it’s not my favorite. I much prefer Ektar or the old VSCO version of Gold. This is of course subjective but it’s just not my favorite and I rarely use it.

Tri-X: I really like this black and white preset. It’s nice and contrasty…good deep blacks. I usually tweak it to be a bit more contrasty like a Pan-F or similar but it’s a great all around preset I get a lot of mileage from.
