Kim Klassen has changed the guidelines for Texture Tuesday. She, like all the rest of us, has dramatically changed her workflow since the inception of her weekly linky party. Now the photos need not contain a texture but must use a preset or a texture or, of course, both. Anyhow, with this in mind, a few days ago I decided it would be fun to play with presets and show you how they differed from one another. This photo was taken for the top down prompt in The Studio.
All presets are Kim's. From top left, clockwise: touchadrama, chocolate, dreamlike and organic. Is there one you like better than the other? To be honest, I like them all for different reasons. As I looked through them, I realized the different looks resembled the different stages that the tulips go through from fresh to fading.
Have you played with presets very much? Over the past few months, I have truly become a fan of presets. Kim's aren't the only ones that I use, I've accumulated quite a collection. The David duChemin set is one of my favorites. If you're a Lightroom user, I encourage you to find other presets online, in addition to Kim's, and experiment. It's lots of fun. And I have found that it really speeds up my editing workflow. I like that!
There are rumors that we're supposed to get 11" of snow tomorrow. Campbell and I have stated emphatically that we refuse to believe it. So we shall see. I'll report back Friday.
In the meantime, have a happy Tuesday and don't be afraid to experiment with your photography whether it's with presets, textures or something else.
Until the next time,
