63 dark and moody presets for Adobe Lightroom by Northlandscapes Photography.

If you like the moody look of my landscape photography on northlandscapes.com this unique workflow is just right for you!

Over the last five years I have created my personal collection of presets for my landscape and travel photos taken in Nordic countries like Iceland, Norway or the Faroe Islands. I refined the presets over and over again, so that they not only deliver unique results, but also work for a wide range of landscapes and lighting situations.

CREATE IMAGES WITH A MEMORABLE STYLE

It was always very important to me to develop a memorable and distinctive style, since the photography industry is constantly growing and expanding and more and more photos seem interchangeable. Simply capturing an exceptional location is not sufficient anymore: The images visually need to stand out and arouse the viewer's emotions. And this is where my presets come into play.

HOW MY PRESETS WORK

My presets for Adobe Lightroom are not a loose collection of different looks with random names, but follow a logical order. All 48 core presets are grouped into nine modules and there is a separate collection with 15 Custom Scenes:

1. Exposure (11 presets)
2. Signature look (5 presets)
3. Vignetting (5 presets)
4. Gradients (4 presets)
5. Split toning (7 presets)
6. Color adjustments (4 presets)
7. Grain (4 presets)
8. Noise reduction (4 presets)
9. Sharpening (4 presets)

10. Custom Scenes (15 presets)

COMPATIBILITY

This well-structured collection of 63 presets for Adobe Lightroom will streamline your workflow significantly and save you a lot of time editing. All presets are compatible with Adobe Lightroom 4, 5, 6, CC and Classic CC (.lrtemplate & .XMP-files) on both Windows and Mac.

When editing with the presets, it is recommended that you start with the core presets and work your way from top to bottom, starting with adjusting the exposure. One of the five variants of the signature look (Brighter / Bright / Neutral / Dark / Darker) usually fits very well for most types of landscapes and often only a few individual adjustments are needed.

GET CREATIVE WITH THE 'CUSTOM SCENES'

The Custom Scene presets are a slightly different but very exciting approach to editing your photos: They are based on the signature look, but have been refined and customized to match a specific landscape or artistic look. The respective title gives an indication of its intended use and the presets come in a separate folder for a better overview. A playful approach, however, is typically the best way to achieve great results, since many presets also fit totally different landscape types and can be a great source of inspiration for fine art photography. These presets can of course be combined with the adjustment presets from the core module.

→ Currently included scenes: Day to Night / Forest in the Clouds / Frozen Waterfall and Snow Clouds / Glacier in the Clouds / Glacier Lake with Forest / Glacier Lake with Ice / Icelandic Moss and Rocks / Moody Earth Tones / Mountain in the Clouds / Mountain in the Clouds (Dark) / Mountain Tops with Snow / Ocean and Fog / Snow and Fog / Snowy Night / Waterfall and Dark Rocks

WHO IS THIS PRODUCT FOR?

This product is aimed at amateurs and professional photographers alike. Each preset has been carefully crafted and tested to work with a wide variety of images types and camera models like Nikon, Canon, Fuji and Sony. The presets are optimized for landscape, nature and travel photography with the typical color palettes found in soil, vegetation, water and rocks. Take a look at the example photos to get an impression of the typical character of the images.

New projects and trips result in the development of new Lightroom presets (especially the ”Custom Scenes”) and further fine-tuning of the existing ones. I will be sharing these updates FREE of charge! You will receive an e-mail as soon as a new version has been released, with all necessary information about the changes.

WHAT CUSTOMERS SAY:

”This extraordinary set empowers me to recreate the appealing look with my own photography. Yet more then simple presets this is a finely crafted, highly efficient toolbox that allows me to develop my own look and is what I mostly start off with when editing any photo. To me it's an absolute essential extension to lightroom, that I would not want to miss.”
