These presets have been designed for the different lighting situations: backlight, soft light and harsh light. There is no perfect preset that will magically perfect any image, however these were designed and tested to get you as close as possible. With any preset, subtle adjustments will need to be made after application. Generally the only sliders you will need to adjust will be exposure, contrast and warmth/tint.
BEANART - SOFTLIGHT - COLOR
Designed to be used with photos shot with even light, such as overcast, indirect, or shade.
BEANART - BACKLIGHT - COLOR
Designed to apply to sunny backlit portraits. Depending on the harshness of the sun, your contrast slider will vary. When sun is directly filtering into the lens, your image will start to wash out and flatten. To bring depth back into the photo, increase the contrast and possibly even bring down the blacks.
BEANART - SOFTLIGHT - BW
Designed to be used with photos shot with even light, such as overcast, indirect, or shade. Because you're working with a monochromatic image you need go the extra mile to make sure your image pops. Adjust your contrast, whites, highlights and blacks to accomplish this.
