Lightroom Presets – Desaturated Sports Photo Presets
Not a great sports weekend here in Tampa. The Giants beat the Bucs yesterday. Even though I’m from New Jersey, I’ve been in Florida long enough (over 20 years) that I consider the Tampa Bay Bucs my home team. And sadly, my USF Bulls did lose to Rutgers the other night (yes, another New Jersey team). Oh well… 🙂
Anyway, now that you have your sports update, let’s move on to the presets. Last week, I released some sports photo presets that I used on some football photos I had. Usually whenever I post new presets, people who read the blog send me examples of what they’ve done with them. Well, I looked at one of the examples from last week, and saw something different. To me at least, their photo looked a little desaturated. I thought, “Hey this looks cool!”. It seemed to add to the drama that the effect has. So I went in and tweaked the presets from last week to have a kind-of desaturated look to them. I think I may even like it better than the other presets on some photos.
Here’s a Before/After:
Just like last week, there’s 3 different versions (Light, Medium, Strong) so you can pick your level of edginess/desaturated-ness for the photo.
Enjoy ‘em and please let me know what you think!
- Here’s the link to download the presets for Lightroom 4 (I made them for LR4. You can try them in LR3 but they’re tuned for LR4 specifically).
- And here’s a link to a video on how to install and organize Lightroom presets if you don’t know how.
Have a good one!
