About REFINED

REFINED began as a personal project to create a preset that could speed up her workflow and consistently blend with the timelessness of her film photography. The preset collection was eventually released to the public in 2017 and quickly became an indispensable asset for industry veterans and amateur photographers alike. In the years that have followed, REFINED’s offerings have grown significantly, along with a thriving community of users and professional collaborators.
