You’ll see there’s 4 presets in this download. I went through my photos and realized that most of my landscape photography falls into several categories (canyons, beaches, photos with lots of green in them, and photos with a lot of sky in them). So I created the settings for the presets to show off those different elements in the photo. Here’s a quick before/after of the canyon preset.
And of course, you’ll probably end up finding photos of a beach with lots of blue sky. In that case, experiment a little with whichever preset looks best 🙂
- Here’s the link to download ’em.
- And here’s a link to a video on how to install and organize Lightroom presets if you don’t know how.
Thanks again 🙂
Hi DLoaded your presets. thanks for sharing them.
Thank you Matt for sharing your expertise.
LOVE the presets but everytime I click on a link, it’s “broken” or missing…
Apparently I put stupid juice in my coffee instead of creamer this morning because I figured it out! Durrr…. Okay, so any chance you’ll post those “twilight presets” ;o)
two thumbs way up! 🙂
MK … you rock – thanks a ton 😀
Thanks Matt, love the Canyons preset http://500px.com/photo/11214047
Wow! Love it!
Great B&W conversion presets, love the pop they give. Just need to find a canyon to make full use of them now, not sure we have canyons in UK, let alone Monmouthshire!
Thank you for the presets. Your description of how the B&W class changed your thinking makes that the next class I watch.
Thanks for the presets!
I was very happy to watch the B&W presentation on Kelby Training, it was such an informative class. To see the pains everyone is taking to make the electronic darkroom mimic the old chemical one is great. I know it isn’t quite the same, but you know, it beats the heck outta just a flat transition. The new Silver Exx Pro 2 is probably a must have much like the Color Efx Pro 4 is.I surely do wish the papers/inks were available where I live though.
thanks for the presets… I tried to view the link on how to install them, but the video didn’t work
Thanks Matt, I enjoy your blog.
will these work in Lightroom 3, by chance?
I have presets in my list by the same name. Are they updated versions of what I might already have? Thanks so much…….love all your presets!!
Thanks very much. Your presets are great!Thanks for,all the free videos you put out there as well.
I like b and w with buildings especially old buildings. I was in Old Quebec City couple weekes ago got some amazing photos in black and white. I do like colour for landscapes photos as well.
Thanks for the presets – but kind of strange knowing that you don’t really like B&W…. LOL
Yeah, I like color. I see in color, color moves me, and it just strikes me in a different way. Up until recently (and I’m still not hooked on b&w), Black and white just seems flat… lifeless… old. Ever since I was alive people have been shooting with color cameras and my first camera was color so it’s just something I find interesting in my photos. Plus, I’m a landscape guy. I love shooting landscapes and part of what I like is the clouds, the sky, and the “feeling” of early morning or late afternoon. You can’t get that feeling with B&W.
I love your presets. Thanks.
