UTW Born on the Bayou Lightroom Preset



CCR + True Blood = bliss.


This preset was inspired by a few frames in the opening credits of True Blood, which has (sadly enough) become my favorite TV show. (I never count Baseball Tonight and The Wire & Deadwood are no more, so...). I've been thinking for a while about doing something like this... but in PS and not Lightroom.


I love this preset. It's really designed for overexposed, backlit, totally blown out shots. Accordingly, it will be too dark on anything properly lit.


This is the first preset I've put on Flickr that has a name that doesn't correspond to a place... I've never been to the bayou, so I had to improvise. Not that any of these shots scream Louisiana. I was just trying to find ones that went together.


If you use the preset, please credit me and link back to this page. I'd love to see what you do with it, so feel free to post a small image in the comments. Thanks for taking a look!
