SLR Lounge Lightroom Preset Review

Over the years, many people have asked me about my workflow for my images. I generally tell them about Lightroom and Photoshop, leveraging those tools to get the best images possible. I also tell them that with Lightroom, finding a “recipe” or a preset that work for their style will greatly improve their overall workflow and speed up their finishing process.

I own a few presets packages for Lightroom, with one of them standing out above all the rest: the SLR Lounge Lightroom Presets. Without question, these presets are the best that I have found and always provide me with the results that I envisioned when I originally pressed the shutter button on my camera. Their presets have saved me countless hours of finishing work (moving from hours to minutes) and saved me from having to spend a lot of time in Photoshop (something I don’t like to do). The lessons that come with the system not only taught me how to use their presets but gave me confidence to use Lightroom as my primary edit tool.

I have been using SLR Lounge presets for about 2 years now, and will continue to use them as long as I take photographs.

Below is a before/after example of a photograph I recently took using the HDR SLR Lounge Presets for Lightroom.

Good job guys!

Shot of the Day 10/04/13

A flower picture that I took this morning. Light using a regular tungsten bulb, camera on tripod to slow the shutter speed down. Adjustments in lightroom.

I took a few more photographs and will post them in the coming days.

Enjoy.

Backyard Flowers

Hi Everyone,

Hope you all had a good weekend and are out enjoying some wonderful sunshine! We had a wonderful weekend here at Casa de McKenna and had an opportunity to snap some wonderful photographs of flowers around the yard.

Nothing special with these photographs. Just using my standard Nikon DSLR with an 26-120mm lens. Cropped in Lightroom.

Enjoy and as always, blessings.

Chris
