The 300 effect grows popularity

Written by on August 30, 2008 in Presets - 14 Comments

So, I guess you like the effect from the movie 300 where Vincent Regan yelled “-This is Sparta!” . The poster/cover and scenes from the movie have a brown-yellow tone with sharp contrasts. Many people have already made different sets for Lightroom that can be used to accomplish this sweet effect. The effect doesn’t work perfect for all pictures. Try them out and you’ll see what fits you.

The 300 preset comes in Three versions: v1 and v2 and v3. Play around and make your own poster.

    Till now I thought of presets as unnecessary stuff. I imported many in my lightroom to check it out and wasn’t satisfied.
    This is the first one which absolutely convinced me.
