DC 01

This is definitely my favorite go to preset. It works in most situations but I think really shines in shade or overcast light. I love seeing it on images with a  lot of greens and browns/oranges. It softens highlights and tones down the greens. 

Included in the DC ORIGINALS PACK and DC WEDDING PACK

 

DC O2

This preset is great for soft lighting. I love it for overcast shoots, shade, window light, and always use it for images with a lot of neutral colors and white where I really want whites and blacks to pop. The colors pop a little more for a brighter image.

Included in the DC ORIGINALS PACK

 

DC 03

This preset is great for sunny or backlit photos. It removes some saturation that the sun can cause but adds some split toning to emphasize the warm sunny look. 

Included in the DC ORIGINALS PACK

 

DC GOLDEN 01

Versatile for most shooting situations. Creates warm hues, matted highlights, moody shadows, and grain.

DC RADIANT 01

The newest of the bunch and my new favorite! Creamy warm skin tones, milky whites, warm shadows, and deep true greens.

 

DC BW 01

This black and white is my go to and works for pretty much anything. I use it for all my wedding work. It has muted highlights but still a lot of contrast and deep blacks.

Included in the DC ORIGINALS PACK, DC BLACK + WHITES PACK and DC WEDDING PACK

 

DC BW 02

I love this black and white for when you want something a little moody or edgy. I typically use this for personal work and some portraiture. I love the creamy highlights and grain that give it a more vintage look.

Included in the DC ORIGINALS PACK and DC BLACK + WHITES PACK

 

DC BW 03

This black and white is a little more muted with clipped highlights and shadows, with some grain for a raw and subtle vintage feel.

Included in the DC BLACK + WHITES PACK

 

DC BW 04

A moody black and white with crushed highlights, clipped shadows, and grain.

Included in the DC GOLDEN PACK and DC BLACK + WHITE PACK

 

DC AMBIENT

This preset is ideal for reception or indoor wedding situations with low, warm artificial light. The preset decreases saturation of certain hues to bring back natural skin tones, while increasing exposure and cooling down temperature. 

Included in the DC RECEPTION pack and DC WEDDING pack

 

DC FLASH

This preset is great for photos using any kind of flash (bounced and direct flash are shown above). It softens the harsh highlights that flash can create, and adds vignette and split toning to make flash photos more interesting and artistic.

Included in the DC RECEPTION PACK and DC WEDDING pack

 

DC SPARKLER

This preset is probably the most drastic. It is intended for sparkler exits shot with no flash (sparkler exits shot with flash should use the DC FLASH preset instead). It corrects the warm low light, skin tones, and noise caused by a high ISO. 

Included in the DC RECEPTION PACK and DC WEDDING pack

 

DC INDOOR

This preset is great for indoor photos and adds warmth through split toning to create creamy skin tones. With clipped highlights and shadows, and grain, it creates a moodier, more vintage look. Great for in home sessions or moody indoor photos. Also fun to experiment with on outdoor photos with a couple tweaks!

Included in the DC WEDDING pack



 

Please note that these presets are not magic and can not fix a poorly exposed photo. I do my best to capture everything correctly in camera so that I save my time in editing.

For reference: I shoot in Raw with a Canon 6D and 35L and 85L lenses. I tend to underexpose a tad, and shoot slightly warm. When editing I tend to increase exposure, contrast and warmth to get to my final image. Depending on your shooting style, that may work for you, or you may have to adjust differently, depending on your camera body and shooting style.
