Through the Lens: @samuelelkins

Another one of my favourite photographers have made it onto Adorama's Through The Lens series on YouTube. Seems like I have a lot of favourite photographers these days. I dig the film look of Samuel Elkins (@samuelelkins) and his general aesthetic. His colours, tones and lighting are all so subtle. 

From what I can gather, I think he uses the VSCO film presets as a base for his edits.

At 19 years of age he's already racked up 427,000 Instagram followers which is beyond impressive. He's the type of photographer that makes me want to sell all my gear and quit. That feeling you get when someone else's work is so good it makes you feel bad in the best kind of way... if that make's sense.

Enjoy the vid!
