Build ‘n Ship – Lightroom Export Presets

One of the biggest selling points for Lightroom has to be its ability to use presets. However, most people simply think of develop presets when they hear the word “preset”. This misconception is understandable; especially considering everything a good selection of develop presets can do for you. But presets can do more for you than […]

Lightroom Preset – Holga

If you’ve never heard of a Holga, trust me when I tell you it can quickly become an obsession! Being a digital photographer at heart, I still love to shoot a roll of 120 in my Holga. It’s not cheap shooting, developing, and printing images from this baby – but the this plastic camera with […]

Lightroom Preset – City Scapes

Lightroom Preset – Ekta – Chromeo

Slides, slides, and more slides. I have boxes full of them. They’re something very cool about pulling the out some slides and cruising them with my loupe. My favorite outdoor portrait film was Kodak Ektachrome 100GX. The 100GX was important because it would nail the skin tones and primaries in my shots. Deep greens, warm […]

Lightroom Preset – Kodak Tri-X 400

This one was a blast to create, just as much fun as the Velvia preset. TRI-X was my favorite film to push … and not just push a little bit … I’m talking about 1, 2 … or more stops to really bring out the grain. So feel free to walk down memory lane with […]
