Before I start this post I must mention Maeve from Platinum Dream is having an amazing giveaway! Woo hoo! Sorry Maeve I didn't have time to devote a whole post to this! Enter here
May I just say, Lightroom 3 presets are breathtaking on some photos. This photo is semi blurry, but the preset makes it barely noticeable. I am going to show you a few different actions on the same photo.
|Aged Photo :: Preset|
This preset has a vintage feel to it. The soft pinks and the bokeh make it look whimsical.
|Yellow Filter :: Preset|
This black and white preset really makes the photo look soft and welcoming.
|Bleach Bypass :: Preset|
This preset is my personal favorite. It makes a light peach color and a sharp focus.
|Split Tone 1 :: Preset|
This preset stood out to me. It is a blue-yellow sort of color and it lets you feel the cold in the photo.
|Look #4 (Black and White) :: Preset|
You have to try some kind of black and white on a photo like this. This dark black and white preset helps the photo's DOF (Depth of Field) and somehow enhances the bokeh.
This is my edit. I was going for something colorful, but not vibrant.
Finally, this is the SOOC (straight out of the camera) shot. I personally like it better than my edit.
Which preset is your favorite?
