One Willow Presets- Before and After

Post Categories: One Willow Presets

My friend Hilary from One for the Wall sent me these lovely portraits to use for a few before/after edits. Hilary is a favorite photographer of mine and I am so honored to call her a friend. She is amazingly talented and inspires me both as a photographer and a person.

You can view her beautiful work at One for the Wall Photography AND this week there is a super fabulous $100 Gift Certificate Giveaway from One Willow happening on her blog… be sure to check it out! Also feel free to use the code FORTHEWALL to get 15% off of all One Willow Preset Collections.

Color Pop-Dramatic: This photo was edited in Lightroom 4 using a new preset (coming soon) and the brush collection.   I applied the preset and then used the following brushes from the Brush Collection; color enhance, skin softening, eye sparkle and lash define, lightening and darkening, and finally Sharpen Definition.

Black and White Conversion: This photo was edited in Lightroom 4 with the Ophelia Preset from the Timeless Collection(version Lightroom 2 & 3). I applied the preset then used the heal tool and also the following brushes from the Brush Collection; skin softening, eye sparkle, lash define, eye whitening, basic sharpening. The Ophelia preset is a preset designed for Lightroom 2 & 3. However, I used it very easily using the update method shown HERE.


Tones:  The photo was edited with the Imagination preset from the Beautiful Things Collection (Lightroom 2& 3 version).  I applied the preset, tweaked it to suite the photo (white balance adjust, shadows, whites, contrast, clarity) then used the heal tool and the following brushes from the Brush Collection; skin soften, eye sparkle, eye whites, define lashes, lighten, define, color soften and basic sharpen.   The Imagination preset is a preset designed for Lightroom 2 & 3, however I used it very easily using the update method shown HERE.

Define and Enhance: For a more natural looking image, I used a new workflow preset for Lightroom 4 (coming soon). I also used the heal tool after I applied the preset and used the following brushes for subtle enhancements; lightening, eye sparkle, skin softening, paint on rose, eye whites, define lashes, and basic sharpen.
