I’m a landscape and travel photographer from Germany and almost constantly travelling around the world and taking photos. I have been using Adobe Lightroom since version 2 and developed numerous presets for myself, which simplified and streamlined my photography workflow significantly.
Presets are especially helpful when dealing with Nordic countries such as Iceland or Norway and the challenging lighting and weather conditions. As with my own photographs, I put a lot of emphasis on the details when creating a Lightroom preset. The selection and arrangement of each collection is done with a lot of care and clearly follows a ‘quality over quantity’ approach. Some presets will result in subtle adjustments and others in more dramatic changes, but all presets are fully adjustable to suit your photography style.
Most of my presets are very universal and make an excellent starting point for further fine tuning and achieving a personal look. Get an idea of the quality and how easy the presets work by taking a look at my 'Free Samples' section.
Even if the presets have been created with landscape and nature photography in mind, they can also be applied to architectural or portrait images. Often a playful and experimental approach in Lightroom will achieve stunning results.
All photographs illustrating the use of the presets were taken by me. Learn more about my work on Northlandscapes.com or visit my Behance portfolio. I am always grateful for suggestions and proposals for new preset collections and look forward to hearing from you!
