What is a Lightroom Preset?
A Lightroom preset is a pre-made set of adjustments applied to a photo in Adobe Lightroom, which allows you to achieve a specific look or style with just one click. Presets can include changes to color, tone, exposure, contrast, and other settings that affect the appearance of the photo. They are designed to save time and simplify the editing process, making achieving consistent results across multiple images easier.
My First Preset
My first ever Lightroom preset was made after my trip to Paris. I brought from this trip over 1400 photos taken during quite uninteresting but dramatic weather. It was also my second opportunity to record a POV on YouTube. In my adventure with street photography, I started to focus more and more on people, hence this preset makes silhouettes visible in photos.
Is it really free?
Yes! Completely free! However, I added an option thanks to which you can support my blog by buying me a symbolic coffee, pint, or even lunch. I will also be very happy if you tag me in your photos with my preset! (@semalondyn)
