PRESETS | Classic pack — FAQ
Can I see some before & afters of the presets? Absolutely! Scroll down & you'll find a bunch.
What is a preset? A preset is like a filter, it's what adds saturation, changes the temperature, exposure, contrast, etc. of a photo. These are the way that I edit all of the photos you see on my blog + social media! The presets add warmth + airy highlights & a bright film-inspired look to your photos.
There are 4 presets in the pack for 3 different lighting situations + a black & white option as well.
How do I use them? You can apply them to your photos in the Lightroom application on any computer that has a Lightroom subscription. Directions on how to install them + use them + troubleshoot come with the purchase.
What camera settings should I be using to optimize the presets? These presets are compatible with both RAW & .JPG images but are originally designed for RAW images. For the best results you will want to be editing well-lit, in-focus, high quality images. Shooting in RAW on your camera is always easiest to edit! The presets will generally need a little tweaking to make them compatible with different camera settings + lighting scenarios. Watch my video tutorial that shows how to tweak the presets on photos to make them unique / look how you want! The Classic Pack presets are perfect for travel + lifestyle + everyday photos.

before & afters
SNL 01 – SUNSET
SNL 01 is perfect for evening light & sunset photos! It adds a touch of pink & brightens up your shots while still keeping details intact.
SNL 02 – EVERYDAY
SNL 02 is what I use on the majority of my photos! Perfect for a quick edit on even lighting & looks great with greens & just warms everything up a touch.
SNL 03 – INDOOR LIGHT
SNL 03 is my go-to for indoor shots. I love shooting inside but nothing's worse than yellow walls & awkward shadows that indoor lighting sometimes creates. This preset brightens everything up & takes away dim lighting & dark corners in photos.
SNL 04 – B&W
SNL 04 is one of my favorites because you can tweak it just slightly & get a huge variation in contrast. You can make it super defined & moody or light & airy!
