Shortstache – “Past and Present” Preset Pack
PAST AND PRESENT
This pack is a nod to the past and present. It is the perfect blend between an older film-style aesthetic and a newer cinematic softness, bringing story to your photos. Both presets are versatile and allow you to edit to your liking while keeping that distinctive style it gives. Whether you’d like to fine-tune your color foundation or transition to black and white, these presets will propel your work into a developed style.

This black and white pulls you into a past aesthetic while keeping that modern-day touch. Included are modifiers designed to give you specific control to easily tune your photos. Stay as clean as you wish or play with the fade/grain amount to your liking. Though the color is now greyscaled, the overall undertone is true to the Shortstache aesthetic with a deeper s-curve.
