I edit all of my photographs with Lightroom 4 (someday 5...), and I love the impact and beauty it helps bring out of my photographs. When I started out learning Lightroom, I thought that using presets was like cheating off of someone's homework. Luckily, I got over this snobbery and went on the search for presets that would help me edit quicker and with more variety.
Over the last year, I have downloaded ten bundles with various presets included. As a thank you for offering these excellent presets, I thought I would share the love and introduce you to a few of my favorites.
MCP Actions offers a lot of great products to buy while also offering free presets to convince you of their excellent quality. They have a page dedicated to free Lightroom presets and I have downloaded and LOVE all of them.
Mini Quick Clicks includes 17 presets, my favorite being True Colors.
|Straight Out Of Camera (SOOC)|
|True Color- MCP|
|Grunge B&W- MCP|
The new Nautical Preset Pack has become my absolute favorite for both black and white and color images. These presets create beautiful soft and dramatic tones. If you've been wondering how to give your images a matte finish, this will do it.
|Anchor- Photography Concentrate|
And if you have questions or want to share your images enhanced by these presets, send me an email, thepieperlife [at] gmail [dot] com.
PS: If you think the above fellow is handsome, come back next week for his senior session!
