Preset – Warm and Fuzzy Effect

Hey folks. I’ll be heading out to teach at Gulf Photo Plus in Dubai later this week (by the way, if you have any “must shoot” places out there please let me know).

Anyway, I wanted to make sure I got another preset in before I left. I called this one “Warm and Fuzzy” because that’s what it kinda looks like. Its got a warming quality to it as well as a fuzzy/soft look (from negative clarity). I’ve tweaked the Exposure setting up a bit as a default, because a glowing feel is part of the effect. If you don’t like it (or want more of it depending on your photo) then remember to go in and change the Exposure settings to your liking. Let me know what you think.

To install:
1) Unzip the preset zip file on to your desktop
2) Go to the Develop module. NOTE: YOU MUST BE THE DEVELOP MODULE
3) Go to the Presets panel on the left. Right click anywhere in it and choose Import.
4) Select the .lrtemplate files you unzipped in Step 1 and click Import NOTE: DO NOT IMPORT THE ZIP FILE

  1. Matt, I’m big fun of this site and your tips. Thanks, man. Now about Dubai. The whole city is a must shoot place. It is very young city (about 25 years) and it looks like city of the future. it is built veeery fast. There are tallest building in the world Burj Dubai (just officially was opened on January 4th, 2010.818 meters high – guinnes record), luxuriest hotel Burj Al Arb, there are biggest dancing fountain in the world (like in Vegas, but bigger and newer), biggest mall Dubai mall with biggest aquaium inside (guinnes record), man made palm islands etc. You need to be ready for lots of shooting. Also, I’d really recommend take a helicopter trip around (it’s priced around $250 per person). Dubai Fountain show starts @ 6.00 pm every 20 minutes with last one @ 10.00 pm. After shooting on the ground be sure to get on 63 floor of Adress Hotel with Neos bar. Pictures of Dubai Fountain from there are amazing. BTW, be sure not to wear shorts and sandals if you’d like to get in a bar. You won’t be allowed.

    Here are photos I took in Dubai (I’m not professional, so do not judge)))

  6. In addition to the Burj Dubai, the 7 star hotel and the snow mall, you might want to adventure in poorer neighborhoods to get some “behind the scene” pics with the labor camps lodging indian workers at the foreground and Dubai’s skyline in the background.

  8. Head to the spice and fish souks (street markets in the late arvo/ early evening… the docks have some awesome areas – but I wouldnt take my camera gear down there.. and if you get a chance jump on a half day tour of the old town – there are some beautiful old buolding there and a much better cooling system than air-con too!!

  9. Hey Matt,
    while I was surfing through your presets, I just discovered the “300” and the “sin city” preset, and wordered, if you can made a preset for the picture style of the movie “book of eli”?
    I allredy tried everything, but it does not work!

    so I would be glad, if you could give me a hint, or better a preset… :-)
    thanx,
    greetings from germany
