lucancoutts - Insomnia Preset Pack for Adobe Lightroom

These are the presets that I use as a starting point for all of my nighttime imagery.

I want to note that this preset pack is NOT being marketed as a one-click solution to better images, and I use many post-processing tricks that cannot be bottled into a Lightroom preset.

The comparison images below are edited using only presets included in this pack; no further adjustments applied.

With that said; here is what’s included…


What’s Included


3 Stylized Presets + Technical Presets

Created in 2016 and tweaked over the course of three years.
These stylized presets lay the foundation to my imagery and are designed to dovetail with the technical presets.


Optimized Nighttime Imagery

I've noticed that many photographers (including pros) struggle with optimizing their luminance details.
I've developed exposure adjustments and noise reduction presets that find the best balance between brighter images & less noise.


How-To Guide

My imagery is very stylized, so these presets work best on specific types of photos.
I've included some notes on how to maximize the potential of these presets, as well as some tips + outside resources for mastering nighttime photography.

Many thanks to my good friend Chris Hau for helping me publish this.

I don’t refer to my Lightroom presets in this video, but I do share some of my favourite editing techniques, which is equally as useful.
