I had also promised a tutorial for the free LR presets available on our Facebook page (limited time only), and I have made good on it. I will have to warn you that I am just getting over the FLU (bleh) and this video is a bit choppy compared to my others, but I think it’s informative all the same. ;) I hope it helps you utilize the presets to their full potential.

We are giving away our first ever set of LR presets for our Facebook friends! I know that many of you have been frustrated when shooting backlit images. Even the best photographer can angle the camera so that too much light gets in and a perfectly beautiful shot gets washed out. In the past these were time consuming edits for me until I developed my own LR workflow fix. I am sharing it with you now. These presets work best on RAW files, and may or may not require some adjusting with your brightness/contrast bars. Color and temperature should adjust easily to your preference. I do about 80% of my editing in LR, then open in Photoshop for the final artistic and skin editing processes. I will be posting a video tutorial on how these work for me very soon. You can get your set by visiting us at www.facebook.com/fromthetreetop or by clicking the image below. Thanks!
TIPS FOR BEST RESULTS-
- Use on RAW image files
- Adjust your exposure/recovery first
- Best on well or slightly overexposed sun flare shots
- Underexposed images won’t work as well with this set
