Michelle Mckay – The Beautiful Newborn Preset Collection
The Beautiful Newborn Preset Collection
So many of us adore shooting newborns, whether in their homes or in a studio setting. Editing for the unique challenges of fresh little humans can be tricky, though – their skin can be red but also present with yellow-ish hues. They can be blotchy or spotty, their little foreheads can be surprisingly coarse, and these trials can make editing tough!
This set was created specifically to combat these challenges. The Beautiful Newborn Preset Collection will quickly transform what would have once been a hard and lengthy editing process into something simple, fast and fun. If you value efficiency or believe in only presenting the very best results to your clients you’ll want to add these presets to your photographer tool box today.
(If you don’t shoot newborns but you are a lifestyle or documentary photographer who shoots in your clients’ home you will also find this set versatile and helpful, especially for those times lighting is limited or sparse.)
IMPORTANT: THE BEAUTIFUL NEWBORN PRESET COLLECTION IS ONLY COMPATIBLE WITH LIGHTROOM VERSIONS SEVEN AND NEWER. THERE IS NO LRTEMPLATE VERSION OF THESE PRESETS, AS THOSE OLD VERSIONS HAVE NOW BEEN SUPERSEDED. IF YOU CURRENTLY USE LR 6 OR EARLIER YOU WILL NEED TO UPDATE YOUR LIGHTROOM TO USE THESE PRESETS.
As this is a digital product, no refunds can be offered to those with outdated versions Lightroom.
What’s included in The Beautiful Newborn Preset for Memory Catchers?
FOURTEEN stunning and versatile presets for you, the photographic artist. Here is a rundown of the inclusions, each of which comes with a sister preset with added grain for those who adore a little more warmth and nostalgia.
Newborn I This guy is solid and versatile, and a fantastic place to begin while editing. In fact, if you are new to the editing process I would recommend always starting with this preset, adjusting exposure and white balance using this base. Once you’ve corrected these, you can then hover over the other options to see if they might be more to your taste.
Bright & Vivid This friend boasts vibrance and depth, and is best used when the lighting conditions while shooting were bright and abundant.
Bright & Vivid – reds As above, but this version is specifically for if baby presented with red skin.
Bright & Vivid – reds & yellows As above, but this version is specifically for if baby presented with red and yellow hued skin.
Newborn Low Light Use this preset if the image you’ve made was taken in low lighting conditions, or if the details of your subject are in the shadows.
Newborn Low Light + Depth Use this preset to provide more depth or contrast to images made in low lighting conditions, or when the details of your subject are in the shadows.
Newborn Rose This sweet inclusion will provide a subtle blushed hue to your photographs.
Newborn Vinty I’m really in love will this preset. It’s a beautifully modern tribute to the nostalgic vintage hued photographs we will have come to recognise and adore from our own childhood.
Beautiful BW A versatile and dreamy black & white that was created with a view to being a virtually one click edit, regardless of the newborn skin challenges and tones you may be experiencing.
BONUS BRUSHES The Beautiful Newborn Preset Collection also includes EIGHT BONUS BRUSHES for Lightroom users to enjoy! These brushes will help you with newborn skin and other necessary fixes in order to eliminate the need for Photoshop.
These presets are compatible with Lightroom Version 7 and up, as well as Adobe Camera Raw (though the bonus brushes are only compatible with Lightroom).
