Lightroom Tips

Presets – Morning Glow

Hey there! I’ve got another summery preset for you today. First, don’t forget that I’ll be teaching a full-day Lightroom seminar in Chicago on July 20th and New York City on July 22nd. You can sign up over at I’d love to see ya there. OK, now on to the preset. I was experimenting with the Summer Haze preset I created a while back and came up with another one that looks similar but different enough to create a whole new preset. I’ve named it Morning Glow. Its got a very warm morning-ish glow feel to it and even has a soft-ish look as well (sorry for all the “ish” words).

What I found really cool-ish about it (sorry, that’s the last “ish” I promise) is that it looks it works great on different kinds of photos. I created it for portraits, but was pleasantly surprised when I tried it on a few landscapes too. Anyway, the download is below so have at it and let me know what you think. Thanks for stopping by.
