I love taking photos, but the editing aspect of photography is actually my favorite part of my entire picture creating process. When I sit down in front of my computer with a memory card full of photos, that is when I feel the most creative. Editing is the part where I can really make an image come to life. The entire feeling of a photo can be transformed purely by changing the lighting and the tones.
I have spent years perfecting my editing style. It's acutally amazing how nuanced of an art just editing is. There are so many different sliders, curves, and tiny adjustments that make an incredible difference in the overall look of a photo. This use to be something that I really struggled with when I first started taking photos, I would look at more experienced photographer's work and just be frustrated that I couldn't achieve the same look in my photos that they were able to achieve in theirs. So I spent countless hours on my compter playing with all the different sliders, curves, and adjustments that Lightroom and Photoshop have to offer.
In the past several years, I have come to a place where I am really proud of my editing, and now I want to share that with others. So I have released my own pack of presets for Lightroom for others to use on their own photos!
I have created many presets, but have decided to release four of my favorites specifically tailored for the season of autumn. They are made with cottagecore and English countryside aesthetics in mind, with 2 warm toned presets, and two emerald toned presets that are perfect for all your outdoors photos during autumn.
I am calling them Autumn Harvest Presets becuase they highlight the rich tones that come along with the season of the harvest! Shop them on my Etsy shop!
This pack of presets includes, Dark Emerald, Soft Autumn, Soft Emerald, and Strong Autumn.
Another massive benefit to using presets is that they give you the ability to create cohesive work. Whether your a professional photographer, an instagrammer, a brand owner, or a blogger, having cohesive photos and branding is becoming increasingly important. By posting content that maintains a specific mood and look, viewers will begin to feel connected to your work. They'll start to recognize your style, and will be more likely to engage with your content. Consistency in the portfolio of a professional photographer is very important too, so clients will be able to look at your portfolio and know exactly what type of images they will receive.
If you'd like to purchase these presets for yourself, they are on my Etsy shop!
