Lightroom Presets – Wedding Day

I’m always dissecting “looks” that I see in photos, and I’ve seen this one for a while now.

After playing with a bunch of sliders, I settled upon some white balance changes as well as some changes in...

Lightroom Presets – Calendar Print Templates

Anyway, they have a cool effect on most of the photos in the intro and I’ve got a few versions of some presets that do a good job of recreating it. As always, your comments...

Presets – The Twilight Preset

It’s official. I’ve jumped on the vampire bandwagon too. It’s impossible not to with all of the movies and TV shows out there. It doesn’t help that my wife is totally addicted to True Blood on HBO. Anyway, I’ve got a new group of presets this week that were inspired by the Twilight saga movie posters. There’s actually a few movie posters with a lot of different looks, but I’ve settled on the...
