Hey everyone. Hope you had a great weekend. I just got back from from shooting the Grand Tetons in Jackson Hole, WY (photos and report to follow this week) and had an absolute great time. For the most part the weather was awesome and I’m really happy with the photos I got.
Anyway, here’s an update to an old preset I released way back. It was a really popular one and it needed an update for Lightroom 4 pretty bad since it looks totally different. You’ll find this one works best on portraits (hopefully the name implies that) and photos that tend to be brighter in nature (notice the sky is blown out in the before version already). There’s also two versions of it. One with a bright edge for photos that have lots of bright sky behind them. And one with a darker edge for everything else. But of course, give it a try on anything. That’s the cool thing about presets – they’re easy to try and easy to undo if you don’t like it. Let me know what you think.
Here’s the before/after:

- Here’s the link to download the presets for Lightroom 4 (I made them for LR4. You can try them in LR3 but they’re tuned for LR4 specifically).
- And here’s a link to a video on how to install and organize Lightroom presets if you don’t know how.
Have a good one!
