As a Wedding and Portrait Photographer saving time editing is a must. With Thousands of photo to weed through and edit every minute counts. I get asked a lot, just how am able to have such a great, fast turn around time and such amazing photos to boot? Well I couldn't do it alone. First off Lightroom has been my best friend ever since we met. I would hate to ever let her go! HAHA. I love everything about it. And after years of learning everything the program can do I hardly ever need to use any other program besides Lightroom, it's the best thing for any wedding photographers business.
Secondly to speed up my editing process I was in search of what Lightroom calls presets. I tried making some of my own which was time consuming and I found I just kept making new presets and never really used them more than once for specific photos and started clogging up my side preset bar. I spent more time searching for that preset I used last year than editing. So my journey began searching the web for presets. I downloaded countless trial presets online to try them out, but I never really liked how they were organized or how they looked. And they didn't really gave me any options. Finally I came across SLR LOUNGE's V5 preset system. WOW! Why couldn't I have thought of this system. Simple to use, easy to adjust, and thousand of combinations of editing possibilities. I loved the organization of the presets and how you can layer them to your liking then go back later and make subtle changes easily. Now that I have been using them for nearly a year they have made my life easier. Some of my favorite presets are ones that modify curves and give me that great film look as you see below. I would have never thought of adjusting curves until now. I also love the Black and White presets as well. Now I do not have to export to third party apps to get that rich look. The presents can found here if you are interested in seeing their capabilities! http://www.slrlounge.com/lightroom-presets
