Lightroom Presets

What are they and how do they work?

In the interest of speed, efficiency and consistency Lightroom presets were born. A tool that has been rolled over and repeated in different ways across different photo editors. Photoshop has its actions, Luminar has its LUTs and Looks but Lightroom is where presets really started to shape the one-click editing generation.

What is a Lightroom Preset?

Presets are by definition a pre-defined adjustment that can be applied to any photograph to give a consistent adjustment. 

Now let’s clear things up – presets aren’t always a one-click solution despite the intention. Many photographers use presets to get 90% closer to their desired effect but still need to make refinements image by image.

Where Can I Get Lightroom Presets?

Lightroom presets can be found all over the internet, some as weak as a baby kitten that does nothing visible for your photos. Others are like a volcano of over-adjustments. Fortunately for you, you’ve landed in the perfect spot in between. 

iPhotography has a massive range of Lightroom presets available in 4 iconic collections for you to buy.

3 Ways to Use Natural Light

Sunlight can be discussed using a few different photography terms and approaches. There are normally 4 considerations photographers look at when using natural light in their photos - Direction, Colour, Intensity and Quality.

1. Direction

In which direction is the light falling? Is the direction of the light where you need it to be? While it’s very hard to change the direction of natural light unless you’re using reflectors you may have to move your subject into the path of the light to get the right finish.

There are 3 main directions that you can use natural light in a photo;

How to Be a Nature Photographer

Going from a beginner nature photographer to making money from your camera you need dedication. It requires time and a never-ending passion to get outdoors with your cameras and practise new techniques. Get outdoors early and return when the sun sets.

Get familiar with your local woodlands and read nature books to learn about wildlife, birding and foliage. This will help you understand what you are shooting and when is the best time of year to find these subjects.

The other challenge when shooting through glass is the tinting. Unfortunately, architects and designers didn’t think about us photographers when creating these skyscrapers.

Their windows are invariably tinted in some way to help with heating.

This means that some of your photos may have a green/grey tint to them.

It’s not the biggest issue as you can rebalance this tint in editing with the ‘tint’ slider for example.
