Lightroom Presets – Matt’s Auto-Enhance Preset

Hi everyone. I've had a bunch of requests to update my Auto Enhance preset. A while back, I found myself making the same adjustments over and over again. So I figured the Auto Tone settings in Lightroom, along with some of the Vibrance, Clarity and Vignetting settings...

Lightroom Presets – Fall Colors

This week I'm updating my Fall Color presets. I was talking to my brother yesterday (who lives in the Northeast US) and he was saying how a lot of the leaves are changing color. Now, when I grew up, my dad was absolutely meticulous about our backyard, so the fall...

Suggest A Lightroom Preset Day

I'm teaching my Lightroom seminar in Orlando today, so I'm bailing out on the blogginess for the day. That said, I thought I'd take your Lightroom preset ideas (I'm posting this here and on my Lightroom site too). I'm pretty close to being out of preset ideas for...

I was watching the Pittsburgh Steelers/Broncos game yesterday (I'm a Bucs fan, but my son loves the Steelers) and I thought of a preset idea. See, I went to the University of South Florida and when I got a chance to shoot a home game for them I jumped at it. Now, the...

Lightroom Presets – Focal Point Background Effects

A while back I had an idea about using the adjustment brush to create a focal point in certain parts of the photo (by darkening the rest of the photo). The vignetting controls (in the Effects panel) are great for doing this but if your subject isn’t in the middle of...

Free Lightroom Presets – The Dark City Night

People love to shoot skylines and cities while traveling so I thought these would make a good recipe to try out on those photos. Like many of my presets, there are 3 flavors to this one (Light, Medium, Strong). They all have a slightly dark theme to them so if you...

Lightroom Presets – Big Sky Landscapes

So, we're driving home last night, and I look west toward the beach to see this crazy-cool-cloudy sunset. We live in Florida and this time of year (with all of the thunderstorms out there), you can imagine some of the dramatic scenes we get. So it got me thinking...
