In Tec’s own words, “Color consistency is vital to my work. I switch back and forth between digital and film frequently– but I was always drawn to Kodak’s palette. There was a clarity and warmth there that none of my digital shots could quite capture.
This collaboration with REFINED is years in the making. We wanted to create presets that not only reflect my style, but bring out the natural vibrance that Kodak film captures so beautifully. Oranges and magentas are richer, skin tones are even, and fine details aren’t washed out in bright settings. I’m so proud we've been able to preserve this color legacy for a new digital generation. From photo to video to mobile, the results are consistently stunning, they feel timeless, and that’s exactly what a good story should be.”
This collaborative line of color and black & white presets are tailored to travel, lifestyle, and wedding shooting. A dozen variations of Portra-inspired presets elevate edits with distinctive tones, contrast, shadow depth, and grain. B&W edits take on new life with the clean and classic aesthetic of Ilford HP5 400 and Ilford Delta 3200.
