I was recently contacted by the marketing folks over at Sleeklens.com to see if I wanted to try out some of their Lightroom presets and brushes. I have to be honest with you, before Jane contacted me, I had only downloaded and used one Lightroom preset and was very green about the brushes presets. In my business as a freelance photographer in New Orleans and the Gulf Coast, I am constantly editing jobs that are VERY different in shooting style, thus are different in the way I edit and deliver.
I Photograph so that I can edit like my clients see...
I always want my deliverables to have a certain "realness" about them. I want my clients to feel that they saw that same thing I did, but in the end there's a certain magic about it. I edit sparingly, and try not to let the "hand of photographer" show through my edits. So when I was downloading Sleeklens brush presets, I was skeptical. But real soon after playing around with each adjustment brush that I dialed in, I realized that I could easily dial back, or push further the effect in a way that was creative and comforting. I recently worked on a photograph for New Orleans drummer and improvisator Marcello Bennetti where I used a few Sleeklens presets and brushes. Lucky for you, I recorded that workflow! Enjoy this VLOG of my Lightroom workflow of a portrait of Marcello using a few Sleeklens presets! And by all means...check out their great BLOG at https://sleeklens.com/photography-blog/
