Free Concert Photography Lightroom Presets
Editing concert photos can be really tough. The nature of the artificial lights, changing lighting conditions, and uncontrollable colors make it tough to get a good shot in the first place, and impossible to maintain the consistency you could expect from some other types of photography. And when you're just starting out, finding a way to maintain a consistent style and dealing with the unique problems of concert photos can be overwhelming.
I've learned a lot about editing from dissecting presets or tone curves from other photographers, so I wanted to give away a couple of my own. There's one color preset and one black & white preset in there.
Black & White Preset
Ok... this is important — don't just slap them on and be done! They're literally my presets, and I don't even use them that way. They should just be a base to start editing from. Adjust everything, assess your image and figure out what it needs or what you want it to look like.
These presets won't work on every image, and that's okay. The color of the lights, natural contrast of the photo, exposure, and more all contribute to how effective the preset will be — not to even mention personal preference. My style probably isn't your exact style, but check them out and see what you think.
