A collection of presets for Lightroom and Adobe Camera Raw. Released on January 1st, 2018, these presets provide creamy, earthy tones while remaining true to natural color. They have been tested on a wide range of photographers' images using a variety of camera gear, and have proven to work with just a few clicks on almost every image.
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 back in college, 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. After years of this, 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 on wasted packs, I'd love to help make someone else's life easier!
My focus when creating this collection was to make presets that are:
+ 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
All sales are final
This pack includes:
+ 6 color presets
+ 2 black and white presets
+ an installation guide
+ an editing tutorial
[I take you step by step through my editing process, using images from a variety of lighting situations. I show my workflow, and tricks with HSL, correcting skin tones, getting greens just right, brushes and gradient filters, retouching skin and more]
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.
