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 A7Rii 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.
How to install: Upon payment, you will receive a download link on the order confirmation page. Click the download link and you will receive a zip file. Most mobiles cannot open zip files, please download the iZip app which will allow you to open up the zip file and then import into Lightroom CC.
Alternatively, your confirmation email will show a link to Dropbox which is easier to use. You can open the link in the Dropbox app or your browser and you will see 9 DNG files. Each file is named with the preset.
When downloading from the Dropbox web page in your browser, you will be given the option to ‘open in Lightroom CC’, simply click this and the file will be imported. Each file is imported as an image that contains the preset. In order to save the presets, open the image and click the three dots in the top left-hand corner (on Lightroom), click ‘create preset’ and save the preset either with the original file name or your own choice. Once these presets are saved they are ready to use!
