Farm Fresh by Ali Harper

I've been a huge fan of Ali Harper for years now. Always finding myself gazing at her lifestyle and still life work. She has a wonderful knack for light, simplicity and composition. Today Ali not only shoots commercial and lifestyle work, but she is talented stock photographer for Stocksy and is the owner and writer of the blog Chase Your Happy an 'Inspiration for Creativepreneurs'. Be sure sure to visit her site and blog to dive deep into her gorgeous work and words.

Ali captured these wonderful images during a day trip to a local farm in Serenbe, Georgia and shared them in our REFINED Presets Social group and we were all instantly smitten! Several people in the group commented that they couldn't believe they were digital...and I agree. Such wonderful captures. Learn what she shoots with and her presets of choice below.

You can find Ali shooting with a Canon 5diii and Canon 50mm 1.2L for nearly all of her work. She tends to shoot between 1.8-2.8 aperature and meters right at proper exposure.

To achieve her clean polished film aesthetic Ali used both Pure and Patina from the REFINED Signature Presets in her editing. She leans on Pure for commercial work that needs truer colors and cleaner edits, and Patina for a bit more of a raw film look. She used both for this set of images and was pleasantly surprised at how consistent they were in the same collection of images. Just how we designed them to be!
