25 Dark + Moody Food Photography Lightroom Presets
My Preset Best-Practices Guide
Detailed Installation Instructions
In this collection, you'll get my 25 go-to Dark + Moody food photography presets and my best-use guide to utilizing the presets in Lightroom. I created these presets to pop with moodier, more dramatic lighting styles, and darker props and shooting surfaces, like grey stone, navy blue linen, old wood, and deep-colored vintage tabletops.
If I were to edit my photos without presets, I'd be spending 90% of my working hours sitting in front of Lightroom searing photos of cake into my retinas. Now, I do genuinely love looking at photos of cake, but that starts to change after hour 3 of sitting hunched over my keyboard with that weird crick seeping into my neck. SO! As a solution to the editing grind, I started making my own presets.
These Lightroom presets are the result of years of food photography, and contain presets customized to shooting in varying light conditions and shooting surfaces. They've helped me form a consistent look and style throughout all my imagery—from my blog to my cookbooks to my instagram feed. And in addition to that...
For under $70 you can get an array of moody + magical presets that will instantly elevate your imagery and create a cohesive look within your photos.
Also included is my Preset Best-Practices Guide to making the most of editing with presets, as well as my detailed Installation Instructions to help you get them into gear.
These presets can be used with Lightroom Classic, Adobe Camera Raw, Lightroom CC, and Lightroom CC Mobile. To use them on the Lightroom CC Mobile app, you must be an Adobe Creative Cloud member, and you just need to install them on Lightroom CC on your desktop which will then sync with the Lightroom CC Mobile (details on this in the PDF instructions in the download).
Both .lrtemplate files (for users with Lightroom version 7.2 and earlier) and .xmp files (for users with Lightroom version 7.3 and later) are included. Due to the digital and non-returnable nature of this product, all sales are final and no refunds are available.
I am SO thrilled to be able to share these years of much-loved edits with you—and I'm incredibly excited to help you speed up your workflow and streamline your editing process! This is the easiest thing you can do to take your photos to the next level, don't hesitate to make your work as beautiful as it can be.
