Before I get to the presets, I’m starting a 5 city tour of the “Lightroom 3 Live” 1-day seminar this week (Phoenix, Indianaplolis, Tampa, Arlington, and Philadelphia). Make sure you’re following me on Google+ and keep and eye out here as I’ll be giving away some tickets to the seminar.
Now for the presets. Here’s an update and an extra version to a preset I released a while back. I see a lot in family portraits and wedding/engagement photos. There’s two versions: one with a dark edge vignette and one iwth a bright edge vignette (last time I only released the dark edge preset). I find it works best on portraits and photos that tend to be brighter in nature (notice the sky is blown out in the before version already). But give it a try on anything because I’ve seen it work great on close up portraits as well. That’s the cool thing about presets – they’re easy to try and easy to undo if you don’t like it. Let me know what you think.
