I was recently approached by a company called Sleeklens to do a review of their Lightroom Through The Woods Workflow Presets. This is a totally new workflow for me because I usually do everything from scratch without presets, I think that might change now.
Through The Woods Workflow Presets are designed specifically for landscape and nature photographers. They also offer Lightroom presets for other shooting styles as well: Portraits, HDR, etc, you name it they got it. You can check out the collection – Here.
They also offers a Professional Photo Editing service you can check out – Here
Instillation of the brushes and workflow presets was super easy, they have a guide on their website how to install them as well as a PDF that’s included with your purchase. A couple clicks and you have 50 workflow presets and 30 brushes at your fingertips.
One really cool thing about this is it’s not a filter over your image like Instagram, it’s actual camera raw settings so you can go in and fine tune it to your liking. I usually spend anywhere from 30 minutes – 2 hour editing my landscape images, depending on the photo of course. With presets I can cut down my editing time by a ton.
Not only do the color presets look great but the black and white ones are really good too. I can never get B&W to look good on my own, with a single click it looks awesome, like seriously.
“Pressed In Time” preset used on this one. Only tweak I did was increased shadows because the right side was pretty dark in the raw.
“Calm Sunset” is the preset used above, only minor tweak was to the white balance to add some warmth.
The brush presets are another cool addition. I used the “DarkenShadows” brush on the photo above. It’s a subtle change but I think it added that extra little something to make it better.
And finally, one of my favorite images with the “Extending DR – Crispy & Sharp” preset. It’s literally just the preset without any adjustments and it looks awesome.
Would I recommend this?
Definitely! Everybody has a different workflow when it comes to processing their images and this is just another tool to help you get there. Whether you’re using it as a starting point or for a finished finished image these presets are really legit.
