Moody Lightroom Presets for Landscape & Travel Photography
Make your photography stand out with this highly universal workflow for Lightroom Desktop & Mobile
If you like the moody look of my landscape photography, this unique Lightroom workflow is just right for you! Over the last five years I have created my personal collection of Adobe Lightroom presets for my landscape and travel photos taken in Nordic countries like Iceland, Norway or the Faroe Islands. I refined the presets over and over again, so that they not only deliver unique results, but also work for a wide range of landscapes and lighting situations.
These are not your average 'one-click presets'.
This product is designed as a structured workflow and consists of nine modules. This gives you the freedom to individually shape the final image with a selection of adjustment presets and develop a repeatable personal style in the process. A structured workflow frees you from the worries of where to start and what to do next.
Compatible with Lightroom Desktop and Mobile (DNG presets included)
All Lightroom presets are included in XMP, lrtemplate and DNG format to ensure maximum compatibility and flexibility across platforms and devices. → See also: Installation instructions and notes for mobile presets
It was always very important to me to develop a memorable and distinctive style, since the photography industry is constantly growing and expanding and more and more photos seem interchangeable. Simply capturing an exceptional location is not sufficient anymore: The images visually need to stand out and arouse the viewer's emotions. And this is where my presets come into play: Take a look at the before and after photos and see for yourself or watch a quick editing session on YouTube.
How my presets work
My Lightroom presets are not a loose collection of different looks with random names, but follow a logical order. All 48 core presets are grouped into nine modules and there is a separate collection with 15 Custom Scenes:
1. Exposure (11 presets)
2. Signature look (5 presets)
3. Vignetting (5 presets)
4. Gradients (4 presets)
5. Split toning (7 presets)
6. Color adjustments (4 presets)
7. Grain (4 presets)
8. Noise reduction (4 presets)
9. Sharpening (4 presets)
10. Custom Scenes (15 presets)
Developed for Lightroom Desktop & Mobile
All presets are compatible with Adobe Lightroom 4, 5, 6, CC, and Classic CC (.lrtemplate & XMP-files included) as well as the latest Lightroom Mobile app on iOS and Android. For Lightroom Mobile, you can choose either the synchronization method via Lightroom on your desktop computer or the installation method via DNG presets.
Also works with the latest version of Photoshop!
This product also works with Adobe Camera Raw (ACR) in version 10.3 or newer - that means you can use the presets in Adobe Photoshop, too.
When editing with the presets, it is recommended that you start with the core presets and work your way from top to bottom, starting with adjusting the exposure. One of the five variants of the signature look (Brighter / Bright / Neutral / Dark / Darker) usually fits very well for most types of landscapes and often only a few individual adjustments are needed.
Get creative with the "Custom Scenes"
The Custom Scene presets are a slightly different but very exciting approach to editing your photos: They are based on the signature look, but have been refined and customized to match a specific landscape or artistic look. The respective title gives an indication of its intended use and the presets come in a separate folder for a better overview. A playful approach, however, is typically the best way to achieve great results, since many presets also fit totally different landscape types and can be a great source of inspiration for fine art photography. These presets can of course be combined with the adjustment presets from the core module.
→ Currently included scenes: Nightfall / Foggy Forest / Winter Mood / Glacier Colors / Mountain Lake / Ice and Snow / Mossy Rock / Earth Tones / In the Clouds / In the Clouds (Dark) / Snowy Mountain / Ocean Mist / Monochrome Winter / Night Drive / Dark Cliffs
