Camera specific Lightroom presets

I shoot all my cameras set with -1/3 EV Exposure compensation. Given that, these are the Lightroom presets I use for 95% of my processing.

Nikon P900 and P610. There are three in the zip file (WP will not let me post the individual files…only the zip). Nikon is my general preset, used for most of my images. Nikon HDR is for actual HDR files, and images that need a bit more opening in the shadows. NikonHDRlight is for images that just need a bit more light overall.

Note that on the P series I set in-camera Noise Reduction to Low (NR-), and Active D Lighting to Normal. For wildlife and birds, I use Standard Picture Control. For landscapes I use the preset Landscape Mode on the control dial, but if I were shooting in Program, I would use the Landscape Picture Control with Sharpening set to -1 at least.

Download the zip file and unzip. Open the folder. Drag the presets to your Lightroom User Presets folder. On my Windows 10 Surface Pro it is here

C:\Users\Stephen\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Lightroom\Develop Presets\User Presets

Substitute whatever your user account is called for “Stephen” in the above.

I don’t have a Mac, but according to Adobe, you can find your User Presets folder here

/Users/[user name]/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Lightroom/[preset or template folder]/[preset or template filename.lrtemplate]

Enjoy…you can share these with close friends, but please do not repost them to the web or social media without crediting me 🙂
