Superb aged look achieved with one great preset

Written by on October 21, 2008 in Presets - 13 Comments

A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure to be the photograph of my dear friends wedding. After I had exported all my images to the computer I started to play around with them i Lightroom. I wanted to give this couple a great memory of this wonderful day. “Straight Out Of the Camera”-shots can look nice but this time I made the decision to step out of the ordinary look.

This preset was born and used widely on many of the photos from that day. I call it “PH Aged in a box” because it gives that good old and warm look that suites this kind of photos so well. It’s based on the preinstalled preset in Lightroom, called ” Creative – Aged Photo”, but I have tuned the brightness and contrast a little. Best of all, the married couple just loves the result of my work.

    This one it’s exactly the same than antique photography that came with Lightroom.

    Yes David, but no…
    There is a minor adjustment for the brightness and contrast :-)
