From the Archives: #003

To continue with the “From the Archives” series, I wanted to share one of my all-time favorites that I shot of the talented model/actor/singer/dancer, DJ Rouse.

I chose this image because I originally processed it with this not-so-nice, greenish tint that looked kinda funky, but didn’t bring out the full potential of the image. Since it was originally processed poorly, with fresh eyes and my new Lightroom Presets, I saw some potential with this image with the new post-processing. I am very happy with the results.

Session Notes: This was shot in natural light, mid-day, with my trusty old Nikon D70 and my 50mm f/1.4. I shot it in RAW and processed in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom. We had just poured water all over his head with a jug so he had kind of a wet appearance. He was a good sport and went along with it for some pretty cool results. This was re-processed with Steller Lightroom Presets (Gray Craze Warmer).

Here is the original RAW file next to the Gray series preset, Gray Craze Warmer. This is only one of the 52 presets included!

Steller Lightroom Presets
For PhotographersProducts // Twitter / Facebook / Delicious / StumbleUpon / DIGG / Reddit

Attention Photographers!

After many people have inquired about purchasing my Adobe Lightroom Steller Presets, I am proud to say that I finally have everything ready for delivery! There are 52 individual quality presets in the collection being offered at the special introductory offer of only $40!

Lightroom? Presets? Why? These presets allow me to artistically process hundreds of photos for proofing in a quick amount of time, all while giving each photo a little unique love of it’s own! Your clients will love you for the speedy turnaround and the “artistic” style that you are able to share.

Be sure to check out our FREE Lightroom presets, too!

With Lightroom’s lightning-fast mouse-over preview function, these presets offer a great starting place for sparking your creativity. After selecting the preset you want, you are able to tweak the settings to fit the photo (maybe just increasing the exposure or bumping the saturation), then sync those custom settings with every similar photo from the session. Ta-da! You’ve got it made and you get to spend more time do what you love…taking photos!

After processing in Lightroom, editing in Photoshop becomes a relative breeze. I usually refine each photo with a trusted action (Check out my favorites from Doug Boutwell – Totally Rad Actions) or set of steps to maximize the photo and then I am done!

Here is a preview of some of the presets in action on some of my favorite photos.

Steller Lightroom Presets!

Totally Rad Actions

Totally Rad Actions – THE best actions around, in my book. I use them daily in conjunction with my Steller Lightroom Presets (coming soon!). If you don’t own them, buy them now! They save time, money, and look….well, rad! Check out Doug Boutwell, the creator, in his latest hilarious video tutorial.
