Lightroom Presets

Presets – Warming Filters

Happy preset day everyone. I’m going back to basics this week with a set of Develop presets that mimic an adjustment I use all the time in Photoshop – Photo filters. In particular, this week’s download is a set of warming filters that give a, well, warm or morning-ish, or sunrise-ish kind of feel to your photos. (No, that doesn’t mean you can sleep in and shoot at high-noon 😉 ) While there are some filters that you still need in your camera bag (polarizer, neutral density filters), a warming filter is something I simply don’t carry anymore. There’s really no reason, as Lightroom and Photoshop can recreate these effects easily. The presets that you can download below have 3 levels of warming. Level 1 is the weakest warming effect (closest to traditional 81a) and Level 3 is the strongest. I know I could have added lots of levels in between but, for me personally, when faced with too many choices I usually wind up making no choice so I wanted to keep it simple. That said, I’m working on some presets that warm portraits a little differently then they warm landscapes so we’ll see what I come up with. But for now, enjoy!
