Free Lightroom Presets Curated by H

To whom this may concern –

For two years I spent a great amount of time working on perfecting my presets, emulating my favorite photographers and my favorite types of film. After understanding the dynamics of lightroom, thus fine tuning what I had created, I set out to create my own presets. Rather than letting my work be defined by the post processing, I made sure to churn these tools to compliment the out-of-camera image. The five presets available for download are applicable to a wide range of styles, in which I will outline which work best in which scenarios below.

Download the presets here.
