A few years ago, photographers didn’t have fancy tools to help them create stunning photos. As a matter of fact, a few years ago one had to contend with awkward color schemes and sub-par cameras that could barely get the essence of the photo being captured. Editing the photos was also a tough nut to crack because the internet was still in its infancy and there weren't any cool editing tools to help you alter images if you didn't like them.
Nowadays, there are all sorts of photography tools to help make creating stunning photos a reality. Looking at your average photos, you can tell that there’s a world full of tools that help make the process easier and the photos even more striking. One of the most important tools is called Lightroom Presets.
In this blog post we are going to look at how Lightroom Presets can make your photos look stunning. Let's get to it, shall we?
What is a Lightroom Preset?
Lightroom preset is basically a configuration of settings designed to help you achieve a desired look or style. With the click of a button, you can alter a photo to achieve the distinct hues, shades, and tones that you want.
How Can Lightroom Presets Help You Create Stunning Photos?
They Offer Variety
Often a pack in Lightroom Presets is a full load of variety. You will find presets for different times of the day as well as a number of different sceneries to help you create the perfect photo. The best thing about variety is that it allows you room for a little more creative intuition. This is to say that you can customize your photos in any way that you want to get the perfect photo without being bound by the limitations of variety.
They Are Customizable
A fully fledged editing tool allows you room to customize each photo uniquely to achieve a slightly different look every time. So you can take two of the same photo and stop down exposure in the second photo to give it a slightly different look from the original. You can also use the brush in Lightroom to edit specific areas of your image to make it look “perkier.”
Lightroom Presets simplify the workflow. Rather than clicking through a bunch of modules and toolkits, all you need is a few clicks to preview and apply a preset. Plus it takes the cumbersomeness out of the process making it easier to come up with stunning photos in a jiffy.
The Lightroom pack includes thousands of presets across a broad spectrum of photography genres, including both simpler and more complex effects. So if you want to create a professional photo, but have no idea how to do it, Lightroom Presets lets you create a whole host of photos depending on what you want. With a few clicks, you can literally have the look that you want to achieve.
They Encourage Creativity
Lightroom Presets are naturally very flexible. Not to mention, some have hundreds or even thousands of presets which awaken your creative intuition and encourage you to be a tad more innovative.
No matter how much you modify the original, Lightroom keeps a full history of all your changes. This is to say that you can alter your photos as many times as you want until you achieve the perfect photo without risking losing all your changes along the way.
As you develop as a photographer, you want to develop your own style and signature. And while there are tons of ways to achieve that consistent signature, one of them is through editing. And this is where Lightroom Presets comes in. With the various presets offered, you can adjust a given photo to achieve the desired signature look and then apply this to every single photo you are working on.
There are many things that we take for granted. At the top of the list, Lightroom Presets. If you’ve decided to get yourself more editing tools to help enhance your photos, you won’t find a better tool than Lightroom Presets. They are fast, fun, and funky and will help you achieve the stunning photos you want.
