Post-processing “Tranquillity” pt.1

By Lauri L. on January 25th 2013

Last Tuesday I posted a behind-the-scenes video about my latest fashion/beauty/conceptual photoshoot involving a custom-made dress that I designed and created out of scratch without any prior fashion design experience. After publishing the article, I received multiple comments and messages from people asking me about the post-processing of these images, and what techniques I used in order to create the “painterly” look.

Because of these requests, I decided to create a two part video-series about the editing process. Today we take a look at a preset that I created for the shoot, with the SLR Lounge Lightroom 4 Preset System. I talk a bit about my workflow in these types of controlled indoor studio-shoots, and how I integrate the preset system into my workflow in order to achieve amazing images already on set:

Technical details

    Great job Lauri. I like your workflow idea of taking a shot of the model to get the preset locked in before tethering. I do something similar for white balancing and levels, but not a complete preset set up like this. Great to learn something new, thanks!
