Fine Art Lightroom Preset Collection Phase

Fine Art Lightroom Preset Collection Phase


Hi, my name is Mikko Lagerstedt – thank
you for the interest in my preset collection Phase! In this tutorial I’ll walk you through the
preset collection and show you how you can use it to get best ouf of your photographs I have selected couple of example photos to
edit with the collection so you can follow through how the presets can change the overal
look of your images. The main idea of the Phase collection, is
to edit your images with simple step-by-step process. First changing the main look, overal
settings, different color edits, effects, detail and graduated filters. So let’s start
the editing! Select a photograph and open it in the Develop
mode. Start my editing from the lens correction
panel. And enable the lens profile settings. As you can see there are numbered folders
to follow the editing process. First We start by choosing a preset from the
Phase collection. There are over seventy unique phase presets
to choose from. Once you find one that follows your vision
select it and move to the next phase which is the overal settings. I recommend to minimize the preset folders
as you move forward with the steps. Select one of the basic settings For this image I think I will go with Contrast
Dark and it is starting to look as I wanted. The only thing you need to modify from the
basic panel is the exposure, if you want darker or brighter photo. I think I’ll leave it intact
for this photo. Lets move forward and choose a color edit. This is looking pretty nice. Next phase is to choose the effects. Since
I don’t want to emphasize the vignetting, I’ll choose reset effects to get rid of any
vignetting which was applied in the phase preset. It’s starting to look how I wanted, just couple
of more steps and I think it is ready. For this image I want to add clarity and detail
to the sky and choose one of the graduated filters. I will choose Stars Clarity Light.
I think it looks great and it enhances the stars and milky way. If you want to fine tune the filters simply
use the M key to open up the graduated filters and move and rotate it to fit your image. You can only use one of the graduated filters
since they don’t add up, so choose carefully the one that suits best for your image The next phase is the final adjustments. For
this one I think I’ll go the basic sharpening. Now I’m finally going to crop the image. Here is the before and after Let’s move to another image. For this one I think I’ll go with a darker
mood. This Hazy Sunset, is looking pretty nice,
but I think it needs some adjusting. And from the overal settings, I will choose
something that adds contrast. Vintage Dark Shadows looks fine! I think I’ll leave the colors untouched Then the effects: I will go with medium vignetting And add some exposure from the basic panel From the graduated filters I think I’ll go
with the balanced because I want balance between the sky and foreground. Hit the M -key to edit the position of the
filters As you have seen the step-by-step process
of the Phase collection adds huge amount of unique editing possibilities . There are plenty of different looks to choose
from. If you are interested in the Phase collection,
just follow the link in the description to see more about the presets.
