I try not to do too many photographer-specific posts, but I had to mention this. So, if you’re not a photographer and/or if you don’t know what Lightroom is, just skip this one. I’ll be posting a blog about my awesome new albums that I’m offering a bit later today. Check back for that one.
I was introduced to Preset Lab this last week, which is a website with Lightroom presets – they have some free samples, and additional presets for sale. I had the opportunity to get a tester set, in exchange for a few images and formulas for the site. I must admit, I was a bit skeptical. I generally make my own presets and actions, and when I do use others’ presets/actions, I usually tweak them until they are my own and practically unrecognizable from the original. Very rarely do I use anything as it comes. But, I wasn’t out anything if I didn’t like the tester set, and I’m always curious.
Well, I was pleasantly surprised by the Preset Lab presets, otherwise I wouldn’t be blogging about them. Actually, I think I should stop here and explain that blogging about these are totally my own doing. I was not asked to blog about them, nor am I getting anything in return. I know that processing is a big question mark for a lot of photographers (even me sometimes). I think that especially for those just starting out, these presets do a great job of conforming to a lot of different styles and could also help develop individual processing styles.
