Over the years I’ve tested many solutions and at the moment I’m mostly using, Alien Skin Exposure, DxO Filmpack and Capture One
All these filters have the option for custom presets, because let’s be honest, the standard presets often look nice but they do need some tweaking to make it “personal“.
I get a lot of questions about what presets I use, if I want to share them, how to create them etc.
And now it’s finally possible to create the same looks that I’m using in my retouching.
With these preset packs you get all the presets I use, no “light” versions, or versions that are “slightly” different from what I use…. no this is the real deal, run them as they are.
There are some tips however I do have to share.
Although most of the times I will use the presets as they are in the preset packages I often also run them on a separate layer and slightly change the opacity of that layer. You will also find that in most presets there is no “noise” added, this I will add per shot depending on the camera I’m using and the look I want. But that’s about it…. these presets will give you a lot to choose from and new creative options to build your own presets from.
As always, if you have any questions feel free to ask.
Enjoy the presets as they are, or (even better) create your own presets with these as a base.
