I have been playing around with the idea of releasing my presets for months, and finally have decided to go for it. I have spent a lot of time tweaking these back and forth and am so excited to share. I built these to make my post work as easy as possible, and depending on the circumstance am usually adjusting exposure, white balance and contrast. I hope you enjoy and they assist with creating a consistent workflow!
This is really good for use on cloudy days as it has a little less contrast but creates a really soft and subtle warm look. I typically use this for my overcast wedding ceremonies or cooler tone locations. Usually tweaking exposure, temperature and sometimes contrast.
This was the first preset I developed; typically most things posted on my Instagram are edited with this preset. It has a higher contrast and less saturation; I use this most frequently for my beach sessions, water sessions and a ton during blue hour. I shoot under exposed and set my kelvin to match the situation. Usually tweaking temperature, contrast and bringing exposure up a bit to get a punchy but smooth skin tone.
I use this for backlit situations and golden hour sun sets. Higher contrast, lower saturation and increased highlights and shadows to really make your subjects pop. Depending on the location I always tweak exposure, temperature and usually a bit of saturation to off set the warmth of the sun.
For those that like to shoot before the sun is up or after it has set; this is my go to. A punch of contrast and slightly desaturated tones. I typically tweak exposure, contrast and white balance. I use this for my water sessions, indoor sessions with window light and any warmer scenes at blue hour.
