What cameras work best with the Kindred Presets?
Though the preset was originated using Canon SLRs, we tested over 7,500 images from ALL camera types and tweaked it to work across the board before releasing it to the public. Even our Nikon users (the most neglected preset owners) are loving Kindred!

Do Kindred Presets work best with custom or auto white balance?
We have found that Kindred Essential works BEST when working with an AWB profile, but still works well when using Kelvin custom white balance as well. It is only in the extreme temperature ratings that correcting the whites can be tricky when Kelvin meets Kindred. YAY for easier settings in camera!

What is the difference between Kindred Essential and Kindred Technical?
Kindred Essential comes with 2 presets , the original contrast version and its low contrast version. Essential was created to be an all around, strong option for most any lighting scenario and works in both natural light and artificial light. Essential has warmer highlights and shadows. If you like peachy warm highlights, Essential is your match.

Kindred Technical is one preset. Technical was made to be paired with reception images and or artificial light. HOWEVER, many of our users are loving using technical all the time and not just for artificial light images. Technical has cooler highlights and shadows. If you like brassy gold highlights and a little more pop, Technical is for you.

Both presets have crisp clean whites and contrast but their whites and contrast are structured very differently.

Is it best to under or over expose in camera for Kindred?
Just as most do when using film, the best practice is to expose properly for your subjects and then alter the preset as needed when editing. Kindred can handle most anything you throw at it but it really shines with properly exposed images. 

Can Kindred Presets work on both RAW and JPG images?
Absolutely! As with editing any JPG image, you are limited to the depth of adjustment, especially when it comes to contrast and color development, but you will achieve similar effects. RAW really is best when it comes to full manipulation of your imagery.

What Film Stock does Kindred emulate?
The best part about Kindred is that it was created from a foundation of a ignorant love of film. Not knowing what stock did what, Jennefer crafted the preset to emulate what she loved most about film imagery; creamy skin tones, natural contrast and rich greens. So, rather than emulating one stock, Kindred can most be compared to any 400/800 film stock and can be adjusted with a few tweaks to match your custom film scans. This worked out nicely when she began to shoot film and found it was incredibly easy to match any film she decided to shoot! Because, we all know, it isn’t solely the film that dictates how an image will look, a photographers lab and their preferences in scanning will dictate the scan most.  

Does the Kindred Technical Preset only work on flash images?
Great question! We’ve found that Kindred Technical does magical things with poorly lit images, shady day portraits, and images that are asking for a little bit more punch just as well as it does with artificial light images.

Does the Kindred Essential Preset work on flash images?
Absolutely! Kinred Essential is lovely on flash images. Kindred Technical was created to have the look of a flash film photograph. Kindred Essential, when applied to a flash image does beautifully but does tend to need some more tweaking than Technical.
