Presets in Action: Snow Images with Industrial Iron

I had originally created my Industrial Iron set of Lightroom presets primarily to be used on the urban decay genre of photograph. I had gone for certain tones that I felt would enhance the industrial and mechanical look, while giving a kind of harsh and bleak tonality to images. But the presets work well in other circumstances too.

We recently had some heavy snow where I live, and I went out to take some photographs in my area while I could. When processing the images, I was trying to give them a stylised look, and quite by accident, I tried some of the presets from the Industrial Iron pack on the images. They actually worked really well, and I ended up using them as a basis for the look on the whole set of photos.

Below is a selection of images from the shoot. You can see the full photo essay here on my Photo Journal. Industrial Iron is available now from here on the store.
