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!
Here’s a quick Before/After (click for larger image):

I’ve discovered a book recreating this one but they called it the ‘dragan effect’ , is this pretty much the same?
Will this work in LR5?
very nice preset
… so do they work with LR5? Just dnldd it. Nice!
Hi! Does this preset work for lightroom 3?
No Lightroom 4 only.
The presets look great! I’m trying to locate the article that was done in the Magazine. I created my own preset from those instructions, with a few changes. As will happen, lost the preset in a lost Mac. Can you please help me find the issue it was in. Thanks Matt.
[…] to find a preset in Lightroom that I liked to use, but really could not find any. I did not try ‘the 300 look’ that I got from Matt Kloskowski because I use it so much already. I decided to give it a go, and I think that it added exactly what […]
Do you have other link so I can download your 300 preset or please send to my email email@example.com. Thanks Well

Thanks Matt, I’ve used it as a basis for my own preset for some types of male portrait photography.

Thanks Matt, these preset has been some of my favorites. My only wish is that you you will update my all time favorites Auto Fix for LR4! Please, please, please with sugar on top!
Hi Matt, Thanks for the HDR tip and video!
Just wondering if you have run into any issues with re-opening that processed HDR file back into Photoshop from Lightroom once you have made your adjustments.
I have followed your video step by step – Merged to HDR – saved as 32-Bit Tiff back into Lightroom & applied adjustments – and am now trying to Edit a Copy with Lightroom Adjustments in Photoshop. No matter how many times I select that command, or restart Lightroom/Photoshop, the file does not open. Similarly, selecting Edit Original does not open the file either. Weird! It seems my pretty HDR is trapped in Lightroom! Just thought I’d bring this to your attention in case you, or others, have encoubtered the same issue.
Great preset, Matt. Thanks! I just used it on one bodybuilder shoot 🙂
vi chiedo aiuto… Sto impazzendo per trovare qualche santo che abbia un LINK, SITO, o altro dove possa scaricare dei preset per lighroom 4.0…
Ne avevo una valanga, ma dopo la formattazione, ho perso praticamente tutto…
Qualcuno di voi, mi puoi passare dei presets….
GRAZIE DI CUORE A TUTTI!
Thanks, Matt, for sharing your stuff.
Nice! I love this preset. Nikon and Canon profiles as mentioned earlier would be ace.
For anyone who has not seen a Matt K seminar, you don’t know what you are missing. And one other thing: Matt is sincere when he says to come up to the stage and say HI. The first time I met him, I was pleasantly surprised at how approachable he was. He also took the time to personalize an inscription to one of his books that I brought up for a colleague who was unable to attend. So if you ever gt a chance, go see Matt live. It will be well worth the time. See you soon Matt!!!
Thanks AJ! The 100 bucks I promised you is in the mail 😉
Very cool Matt. Thanks so much!!!
Thanks for this.
Great stuff as always
Thanks for the update Matt! I use the 300 look preset every now and then.
Please update the Nikon presets next (e.g. Standard, Landscape, Portrait, etc)!
I am glad for your updating some of classics for LR4. I really like that you are noting on the file name that they are for LR4 since I save all presets in folders and this help to tell which is for which version. Thanks Matt
Thank you Matt. It’s one of my favs presets !
Great update to an “oldie, but goodie” preset, Matt! Thanks.
My son and I (and a friend of mine) are both attending your Boston LR4 show next week. You know I will come up to say “hi” to you (and probably ask some dumb question)! 🙂
Awesome John. See you there!
Hi Matt. Great job your doing over here! One thing, on my mchine (mac, lion, lr 4.1), when I use one of these presets, its making some other presets I select have the brownish tint you’ve used, the HDR lr4 presets you’ve posted for example.
Thanks for the update. You have no idea of how much I love this preset 🙂
Thanks, Matt. Love it when you update old favorites. 🙂
From San Francisco
Thank you, Matt! Loved the old 300 preset and I’m loooking forward to the update.
Thanks. Will try it
400 people, woah. Do share some if any interesting or important Q&A’s happen.
I sure will!
“better for portraits that have women in them” Seriously? Why on earth did you have to add that? Aren´t women allowed to be i rougher pics, and can´t men look nice? Honestly, I expect better here.
Yes… seriously! I added it because they, well, look better on portraits that have women in them (weddings, family portraits etc…). Crazy huh? That an effect or retouching could actually work better on a specific gender for a specific look. But please, you’re free to make the women in your photos look as rough as you’d like. I’m sure they’ll appreciate it 😉
Oh for God’s sake – don’t be so wet and pathetic
HERMOINE – BTW – IS THAT NAME MALE OR FEMALE? IF YOU ARE NOT HAPPY WITH HIS GENEROSITY IN SHARING THESE FOR “FREE”………… WHY DON’T YOU GO PURCHASE THEM SOMEWHERE……….. GEESH – YOU JUST CANT PLEASE SOME PEOPLE – EVEN BITCH ABOUT FREE STUFF!!!
