FilmLUX 2 Now Available

I’m delighted to announce that my latest set of Lightroom Presets, FilmLUX 2 is now available. FilmLUX 2 was designed to create a subtle “film” like look to digital images, without them looking overly processed. With many presets, and even when processing manually, it can be easy to take your images too far and have them look like they’ve been heavily treated. With FilmLUX 2 I wanted to create a set of looks, that could enhance an image without it looking like you’ve done an extensive amount of work to it. while the images will still look treated, the effect won’t be too extreme.

There are twenty five different “looks’ in FilmLUX 2 and they are broken into three categories. There are five “chrome” like looks, which are based on an older type of transparency film, and have a reduced saturation for an aged effect. Secondly, there are ten “Vivid” style looks. With these, I wanted to create a vivid look that wasn’t too oversaturated, and still looked relatively natural. They also have a film like curve, ad tend to brighten the image a little, for that slightly pushed film look. Finally, there are ten “negative” effects. These have reduced saturation, raised blacks and a subtle roll off not he whites for a softer look. Each of the 25 main looks comes in two variations, one with grain (marked with a +G) and one without grain.

Here are some examples of FilmLUX2 in action:

FilmLUX 2 is available now for the special launch price of €8 (Normal price will be €10) Price depends on your local VAT rate. For full details and some more examples see the product pages on the store.

FilmLUX for Lightroom - Lightroom Presets

I’m delighted to announce, that after much delay, my latest set of Lightroom Presets, FilmLUX is now available. I came up with the idea for FilmLUX a little while ago when I was in the midst of scanning lots of old slide and transparency film. I noticed that the results I was getting had a really nice quality to them, and they weren’t quite like what I was getting from other presets. With this in mind I set about trying to create my own, paying close attention to the results I was getting from my own film scans.

The result is an artistic impression of the various film stocks I used to shoot with, rather than exact emulations. This set also contains an extensive collection of Grain presets presets to mimic the grain found in various types of film.

Here are a few samples of the presets in action:

FilmLUX for Lightroom is available now for €10 from right here on the digital download store. It’s available at a reduced price of €8 for the first week (until the end of July) and you can find more details and more samples over on the store’s product pages.
