Northern landscapes with their specific light conditions are a true paradise for photography enthusiasts: Foggy and rugged coastlines, deep fjords or snow-covered, barren mountain scenery characterize countries like Norway, Iceland or Canada.
The unique atmosphere created by weather and light pose a challenge to find the right camera setting, resulting many times in lack of contrast, and bright colors suddenly become flat and vapid.
This collection of 15 versatile Lightroom presets was developed for those specific conditions of northern landscapes, and successfully put to the test for various scenes in different natural settings. The names of the presets suggest their best application with regard to landscapes and seasons, yet playful experimenting with the presets yields intriguing results as well.
Every preset is meant as a starting point. You will always have to fine tune some settings – especially the Color Temperature and the Blacks and Whites under the 'Basic' panel.
If you don't currently own an Adobe Lightroom license, but would like to give it a try, Adobe offers a 30 day free trial version for Mac and PC. All presets will work with a trial version, since it is fully functional.
