Lightroom 4 Presets – "The 300" Look (updated)

Hey everyone. I know I’ve been a big slacker on the blog lately. Been traveling like crazy teaching my Lightroom 4 Live seminars so it’s been hard to keep up. Today, I’m in San Francisco and it’s looking like a great crowd of over 400 will be there. As always, my invite stands – if you’re coming to the seminar please come on up and say hi at some point. It’s great to see the faces behind the blog.

On to the presets. Here’s another oldie but goodie that I updated to work better with Lightroom 4. The actual effect was inspired by a movie that’s a few years old. It’s called “The 300”. So the preset isn’t new, but I still see the style of this preset used all the time. It’s a very edgy tinted kinda look. You’ll notice there are 2 presets in the zip file. One of them is for a harsher stronger look (good if you’re looking for that gritty effect). The other one is for a softer look (better for portraits that have women in them). Hope you enjoy!
