Lightroom Presets

Presets – The Ultimate Fighter Lightroom Preset

Last week’s “Twilight Inspired” presets had me admitting that I like vampire shows. This week you’re getting a look into another favorite of mine – The UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship). There’s even a show I watch called the Ultimate Fighter. Well, a while back I had been watching a UFC match and realized they apply a special effect to all of their photos and videos. So I had to set out to recreate it and came up with some great Lightroom presets as a result.

There’s 3 versions and while they seem to work best on dark dramatic photos, they work on brighter photos as well. It’s just got to be a photo that you want to add a dramatic gritty effect to (probably not a good family portrait effect). It also works great on other types of photos too (check out the example below).

As always, your comments are welcome. Download ’em and let me know what you think.
