Day 7 of Portrait Challenge And My Favorite Lightroom Presets For Portraits

This is Day 7 and the final day of the challenge. Aside from showcasing these portraits I captured during Camerahaus Photo Festival, I also present to you some of my favorite Lightroom presets I use which I also used in this portrait challenge series. But first, let’s have an overview what presets are.

  1. What are Lightroom Presets?

Lightroom is a mobile editing app just like Snapseed, VSCO and Instagram. Lightroom presets are actually filters but way more advance because you can adjust the settings, hue, tone curve and other things. You can actually make your own Presets. People who are good in it can share or even sell it.

I’ve been addicted with Lightroom editing recently since you can edit a lot of pictures in batches. While I do manually edits, I truly love to use presets that I got online. In this blog post I am going to share my favorites especially in portraits.

2. Where did I get this Lightroom presets?

I got this all from a Facebook community   Lightroom Classroom PH . If you want to have this presets, you have to be a member of this Facebook group. Talented creators are frequently having giveaways there. They are pretty generous.

So that’s it. Off we go. Some of my favorite presets.

1.Creamy Beach

Creator : Klein Conejos a.k.a NoobGFX. The creator has his own fb page: NoobGFX. 

I consider this as my most favorite preset. I actually raped it haha! And if you have been following my blog for a while, you will  notice that I use it for most of my blog posts. I just love how it brings out the colors of the picture. It also gives skin a pinkish glow. Although sometimes, it is way too much pink. But for that, I just tweak saturation a little..

2. Peach Perfect 

Creator: Steph Villanueva

I just discovered this recently and it became my instant favorite because it looks subtle and natural. It does not change the skin tone too much. It is also extremely good in underexposed photos.

3. Creamy Fade Light 

Creator: Klein Conejos aka.  NoobGFX. 

Yes another NoobGFX preset! Creamy Beach and this one is actually part of his creamy presets. It looks like Creamy Beach but this one has slight fade effect. It also more brighter.

4. Orensie 

Creator: JAO

It makes the photo a little bit antique. It’s just harsh on the skin sometimes. It makes the skin looks copper but it looks good if a human subject is far away. This would be my least favorite in this batch if portrait is the issue. But this  looks really good in landscapes.

5.  Lightroom Preset Groove

Creator:  Sheantel Claveria

This is my most recent discovery. I love the mood it gives to the photo and it is skin-friendly too. This is the next preset I’ll abuse.

  1. I personally don’t like using presets and lately I don’t like editing my photos kasi trip ko lately yung natural look??? Konting adjust lang ng brightness okay na for me. Pero madaming maganda sa mga presets mo dito. Gusto ko yung creamy beach and orensie! Namiss ko yung ibang days mo kaya go back muna ako 🙂
