Jill Greenberg Video and a Birthday

Guess who’s birthday it is this week? Nope, not mine (that’s next week in case you want to send presents). This week marks the one year birthday of the official release of Lightroom 1.0.

New Presets – Burnt Tone

As you may have seen, I took a couple of days off but I’m back from my quick trip out west and I’ve got another free preset for you. This one was actually inspired by a poster I saw in Las Vegas this past weekend. The effect was a very strong burned feeling and I set out on the flight back home to recreate it.
