It's Preset Day Again (City Nights Effect)

Hey everyone. I’m back this week with another new preset. First I’ve got to thank everyone who has ordered the Layers book so far. If you want to see a funny photo, my friend RC took this photo of me signing books. I was literally buried. When I came up with the idea to sign a copy for anyone who ordered from Kelby Training’s website I had no idea I’d get this many. I was totally shocked but totally honored at the same time. So my writing hand is hurting a bit but it’s all good. I’m very grateful for all of your support. Ok, on to the preset… This week I’m taking a really different direction with a preset geared specifically for night-time city skylines and lights. I pretty much stumbled on this one as I was adjusting a few photos I took at night the other week. I found that a few key adjustments really helped bring out the lights and the color we see at night. You’ll see there’s 3 versions and they basically range from a light version to a darker version so it’ll dramatically change your photo depending on how light or dark it started out. I hope you enjoy ’em!
