London, one of the most visited cities in the world, is full of different neighbourhoods. Each neighbourhood has its own characteristics that can be sucked out when using the same filters over and over again. I have created 10 presets, each based on my favourite areas of London.
You will find the gritty, darker filters for places such as Spitalfields, Liverpool Street and Islington, and more light and colourful presets for Notting Hill and the city’s famous mews. I have also included a vintage look which can be used anywhere, and a country feel in the Little Venice preset.
Each preset has been created based on photos taken on my Sony a6000 camera. It is important to note that each camera whether it be a Sony, Nikon, Canon, iPhone etc will all produce different images with different colour balances, the lighting conditions are also always changing and my aperture and iso settings may be different to yours. Because of this, presets can look different on each photo. To save creating hundreds of presets based on hundreds of different lighting scenarios, it is easier to create 14, these can then be tweaked using the sliders on your Lightroom settings.
Tip: It is likely that the exposure, in particular, will be different for each photo. Don’t panic if you apply a preset and it seems over or underexposed, just adjust your exposure up or down and this should solve the problem. Feel free to contact me on hannah@instabritain if you need any help.
