  • Arancia Lightroom Preset by Rachel Carter Images

    Arancia Lightroom Preset


    Arancia lightroom preset was created to be soft and have pinkish orange hues that work best on blue hour images.

    There’s localized masks in this preset, so while you could use it as one click it’s best used as a jumping off point.

    For best results, apply to blue hour images.

    Works on both Lightroom Classic (desktop) and Lightroom (mobile). 

  • Canon 16-35mm f/2.8 lens III

    Canon 16-35mm Wide Angle Camera Lens

    My daily go-to lens is the Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8 III USM Lens. The amount of love I have for this lens would have to be a separate, sappy love post. As my workhorse lens, I have probably used it more than any other and am most comfortable with. Since it is a wide-angle zoom lens…

    Fuji X-T3 Camera Body

    After I was instantly hooked on the Fuji X-T1… I decided to upgrade and purchase a used Fuji X-T3 camera body. This weather-resistant camera body has been amazing to work with over the last year. In the photos below, I’ve used it with the Fuji 10-24mm f/4 and Fuji 18-55mm f/2.8 lens. I think the images…

  • Jo Totes Gracie Camera Bag - Mint

    Jo Totes Gracie Camera Bag

    The camera bag I use most often (especially for local real estate shoots) is the Gracie by Jo Totes. It’s $119 on Amazon and perfect for my camera body, lens, and flash. This is definitely my go-to bag, and it’s held up well for several years. I’d absolutely buy another camera bag from Jo Totes. I can…

  • Miroco Milk Steamer - Rachel Carter Blog

    Miroco Electric Milk Steamer

    In mid-March, as we were sent home from the office due to the coronavirus pandemic, the first thing I did was order a milk frother. My thought was, well if I’m going to be home for 6-8 weeks I’m going to need to make my own lattes! And at a price of $40, I thought…
