Lightroom Presets

Lightroom Presets – Ice Cold!

Today’s presets come to you from, well, the weather. Not that we have it bad here in Tampa, Florida. It’s actually refreshingly cool out so I always enjoy this time of year. But we’ve had our share of cold (relatively that is) here, and from watching some football yesterday, so has the rest of the country. Anyway, I was working with some ideas on making a photo look “cold” and this preset is what I ended up with. As always, this is a starting point. There’s 3 different versions from light to strong. You’ll probably want to tweak the settings after. For example, if you start out with a really warm photo then you may need to adjust the white balance to something even cooler. I’ve even included a fairly warm landscape photo to show you (in the sample below), that it even gives sunny warm photos a cold feeling. Hope you enjoy! Let me know what you think.

Here’s a few samples. (click to see it larger).
