Signature Portraiture Preset – Black Crush | Flare & Silhouettes

When photographing in difficult lighting conditions, both exposure and contrast can leave your raw files looking a little flat and dull.

Unfortunately, the solution in post-production is often more complicated than simply boosting exposure and contrast. Fortunately, however, the SLR Lounge Preset System includes finely-tuned presets that offer the best tonal management for various different lighting situations.

In this example, we will achieve vibrant, punchy colors and contrast while maintaining soft, gentle details in skin.
