A Sneak Peek at QuickLux 2
I've been busy working on my March set of Lightroom Presets, and they're nearly ready. I'm really happy with how these are turning out, so I wanted to share some of the testing with you. Basically, the next set will be a sequel to QuickLux. Unimaginatively called QuickLux 2, it will, like the first set of QuickLux presets, include some of my personal artists interpretation of negative, and transparency films.
For this quick preview, I'm looking at the part of the set I'm calling "QNeg" (as in Quick Neg). I've designed these around a particular look that I've been seeing a lot of, and that I really like. It's the "outdoors in the woods", kind of alpine type style that seems to be popular on various lifestyle magazines at the moment. It works quite well with dull weather, which makes it a perfect companion for images shot here in Ireland! Over the weekend I took some street shots in Dublin city, and I ended up using the variations of QNeg on them, and I'm really happy with how they look, so here are some examples.
These were all shot on a Fuj X-E1 and I've used Pro Neg Hi as the base calibration. The set seems to works really well with Fuji Files shot in ProNeg.
QuickLux 2 will also feature some Retro Negative and Transparency styles, as well as some looks for Faded colour and Black and White films, as well as some basic Transparency Looks too. There's currently 30 presets in the set. I'm still putting the finishing touches on it, but I hope to have it available by the end of the week (or maybe next week!)
Speaking of Lightroom presets, some of my current sets are on sale, but that sale will be ending soon, so if you're looking for some inspiration, stop by and check out the store.
