Are you the kind of person who loves lots of detail about what you’re getting? Here we go …
1. Baby Blue Preset
Baby Blue is a lightroom preset that has been created to enhance blue tones and brighten skin tones in an image so it’s ideal for portraits and looks great in images where your subject is wearing blue clothing, has blue eyes or in a location with blue tones in the background.
It’s one of my classic portrait adjustments. I’ve used this preset for editorial and lifestyle shoots for major television networks, magazines and models portfolios. (Lite and Heavy supplied.)
2. Covergirl Preset
Covergirl is the Goldilocks of all my presets because the adjustments are not too heavy and not too light but just right. This is the preset I use for many of my commercial advertising clients and for editorial and cover shoots.
3. Cuban Cigar
Cuban Cigar is a preset I created while I was in Cuba. It’s exactly the way I see Cuba in my mind’s eye. It’s warm, gritty, sexy, grungy and loud! If you’re feeling adventurous and want to make a statement try Cuban Cigar Heavy. If that’s too much for you I’ve also created a softer version, Cuban Cigar Lite. (Lite and Dark supplied.)
This preset is perfect for character portraits and also looks great on gritty street scenes or industrial locations and still life shots.
4. The Dirty Harry Preset
The Dirty Harry preset is tough, strong and in your face just like the Clint Eastwood character it was named after. This is a preset with attitude and works best for strong character portraits or portraits that ooze attitude and confidence. (Lite and Dark supplied.)
5. Japan 1940
Whenever I travel to a country I’ve never visited before I always have an image in my mind’s eye of how that country should look in photos. When I visited Japan I had a romantic image of 1940’s Japan and that’s the inspiration for my Japan 1940’s presets. This preset is perfect for street photography and also works well for some portraits. (Lite and Dark supplied.)
This preset has been specifically designed to enhance shadow detail in underexposed images. It’s a strong, grungy, gritty black and white preset perfect for street photography and in particular moody night shots or scenes that that are very dark. I use this preset for many of my travel lifestyle images and some editorial images. (Lite and Dark supplied.)
7. Morning Light
Morning Light is a soft preset and was designed to mostly add colour tones into the shadows and highlights of a portrait. This preset tweaks skin tones only slightly so is perfect for portraits that you only want to adjust ever so slightly.
Morning Light 3am will add blue tones to the image.
Morning Light 7am adds warm tones to the image
This preset is perfect for moody shots just just need a little edge. I use it for editorial shoots, models portfolios and musicians. (3am and 7am supplied.)
8. Muscle Beach
Muscle Beach has been created to add contrast, definition and warmth to an image so it’s perfect for lifestyle body shots and creating edgier looking portraits. This gritty, grungy look has been one of my ‘go to’ presets for many of my television promotional and marketing shoots and is one of my favourite styles.
9. Nutella Lovers
I love Nutella more than anything so thought I’d create a preset in honor of my favorite chocolate snack. Nutella is a preset that captures all the things I love about chocolate. It’s warm,smooth and makes me happy. The bonus with this preset is it’s 100% fat free! I’ve designed this preset to add warmth and edge to black and white images. This is one of my favourite presets for travel, lifestyle and street photography. (Lite and Dark supplied.)
The Sicily preset has been designed to capture the Sicily I know and love. It’s warm, gritty, grungy, nostalgic and a bit rough around the edges. This preset will bring back detail in highlights and also open up shadow tones and increases contrast in the midtones of an image. It will also add warmth and grain to your images to give them an old school film retro look. This preset is perfect for creating retro style interior shots and grungy street scenes. I love using this preset for many of my lifestyle travel shots. (Lite and Heavy supplied.)
11. Summer of ’76
This series was inspired by images of my mum and dad in the 70s. The photos always look slightly soft and dreamy with a warm desaturated glow. I use these presets when I want to create a nostalgic feel to my images.They are also soft and pretty so perfect for models folios, senior shoots or couples shoots. (Lite and Dark supplied.)
12. True Grit
This is by far my grungiest,edgiest and toughest in your face preset. It’s big and it’s loud and makes your images stand out. This preset will give definition and edge to every single pore and line in your model’s face or enhance every detail in your street photography so probably best you don’t use it for sweet Aunty Joan’s 50th birthday portrait. I’ve used this preset and variations of this preset for many of my television and editorial promotional shoots. (Lite and Heavy supplied.)
The Goldilocks preset is a not to heavy, not too light preset for the times you’re looking for something that’s juuuuussssssst riiiigggghhhht
Goldilocks Lite was created for to brighten skin tones and make them pop.
Goldilocks Soft was created to brighten and soften skin tones slightly
Use these presets as a starting point and then adjust the exposure, shadow, clarity and, black sliders to suit your own images.
14. Sexy Clouds
Want your cloud shots to look sexier? *cue saxophone music*
I’ve created a Lightroom brush preset that will bring out the texture and tone of clouds, or anything that’s white and fluffy (it also works on polar bears and white kitty cats).
This is a brush preset that you can use in the develop module with your adjustment brush. The really cool thing about brush presets is that they only target the area you use the brush on.
15. Moroccan Vintage
The Moroccan Vintage Presets have been designed to create an old school vintage camera look. It’s a bit grainy, with light leaks and shadows just like the image was photographed with a 1950’s film camera.
All images are slightly different so feel free to tweak exposure,contrast, shadows, whites and clarity to suit your image.
16. Cuban Spotlight
Cuban Spotlight Preset was inspired by the rustic street scenes I experienced on my recent trip to Cuba. This preset is great for bring out the detail in slightly underexposed images or moody images of dusk or dawn scenes.
Every image will have slightly different tonal value, so feel free to tweak the shadow, black, white and clarity sliders to best suit your image.
The entire Power Pack is only US$37. What are you waiting for?
Got questions? We have some answers here …
What software do I need to use these presets?
These presets will work on Lightroom 4, Lightroom 5, Lightroom 6 and Lightroom CC. If you don’t own a copy of Lightroom you can download a free 30 day trial here
What files are supported?
These presets will work with RAW, Jpeg and TIFF files. For best results I always recommend you shoot in RAW.
How do I install the presets?
Download the presets onto your computer and store them in a separate folder. I also suggest you make a backup copy onto an external drive for safe keeping.
Your files will be downloaded as zip files. To decompress (unzip) a file or folder on a Mac, double-click it. To open a zipped file on a PC, you will need to drag the .zip attachment to your desktop. Once the file is on the desktop, you can double click or right click to open it.
Startup Lightroom and click on Lightroom> Edit on a PC or Lightroom> Preferences on a Mac. Both are located on the top left hand corner.
A new screen will come up. Click on Presets tab.
Click Show Lightroom Presets Folder.
Go to Lightroom> Develop Presets folder
Copy your new presets into the “Develop Presets” folder.
That’s it. You are now ready to start using the presets. If you had Lightroom running
while you were copying presets into the folder you will need to quit out of lightroom
and restart it again before you can use the presets.
How easy are these presets to use? Do I need a Science degree or MENSA membership before I try them?
These presets are one click wonders. Just import the image you’d like to transform, click on the preset and that’s it!
Can I change the presets?
Yep! Go nuts. The great thing about these presets is you can tweak them by adjusting the sliders to whatever look you want. Use my presets as a starting point and adjust them to suit the look you want.
