Photoshop ACR Presets | The Milk Bath Collection
PRESETS FOR ADOBE® CAMERA RAW
CLICK HERE FOR THE ADOBE® LIGHTROOM™ VERSION
Dreamy presets that will transform difficult lighting situations into beautiful, colors and tones. Have you ever without enough natural lighting and ended up with horrible yellow and green tones? With these presets you'll be able to make the perfect adjustment and turn photos you thought were unsavable, into pieces you fall in love with.
I shot these milk bath portraits in a tiny guest bathroom, with absolutely NO natural light. (it was like shooting in a box with the only light source being basic yellow bathroom lights). I didn't use any studio lighting. I could have changed my white balance while shooting but wanted to see how to make the perfect adjustments in post processing because I know so many people have problems with not having access to good lighting and only realize after shooting how difficult it is to work with and edit.
To use the presets you'll start by choosing from 11 special designed presets called 'cool it down'. Our first goal will be to cool down colors and tones and then choose the 20 perfect complimentary preset to use in combination with our portrait. You'll see in the video linked below, that there were NO additional presets made to these portraits. I simply picked the right preset and it completely transformed my work.
This collection is for you if you love;
- A quick fix for harsh indoor lighting
- Sharp Details
- Medium Contrast
IMPORTANT: This preset collection was inspired by the milk bath portraits, but they can be used for ANY portraits that were shot in tricky indoor lighting (studio portraits, in home photos, birth photography etc.). If your portraits have that harsh yellow lighting, these will work perfectly!
Don't let difficult lighting and white balance stop you from creating beautiful work!
In the video below is a click through of every preset included, no additional adjustments were made in the video or before and after. I spend a lot of time creating my presets and want to make them easy to use for portrait photographers. The goal is to use presets to speed up your post processing and help you achieve the look you absolutely love.
You'll also see a gallery below showcasing portraits using this collection.
