My heart behind sharing these

It has taken me years of trial and error, sleepless nights, frustration, and wasted money to try to find an editing style that worked perfectly for me. I remember buying all the preset packs I could find, to still be disappointed. I would edit and re-edit sessions until I didn't even know what I was looking at anymore. I know you can relate. Over the years, I finally developed a set of presets that I am so confident in. I never feel the need to re-edit, or tweak a ton. People ask me why I want to give away something that's a "secret sauce" to my work, if it's taken me so long to develop. My answer is that, if I can save someone else the stress, frustration, and money, it's worth sharing!

My focus when creating this collection

+ versatile and easy to use on all gear and in all lighting situations
+ timeless and true to color
+ focused on great skin tones and greens
+ easy to tweak to fit all photographers' unique styles

 
 
 

This video is a sped up version of my screen, editing your photos. The images are from several photographers, and taken on a wide variety of gear. Edits are made only in the basic panel, demonstrating that you can get your images looking great with just a few clicks!

 
 

I shoot in Camera RAW, auto white balance, and slightly underexpose. 

When editing I tend to increase exposure, contrast and warmth to get to my final image. 

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