Below are now some examples of the presets I put together :) These five are based off of Films / movies set in France as I have seen so many amazing ones! I have also placed a little mood board here so you can see the inspiration behind the color and tone choices!
1960 - Of course Amelie has it’s place in here :) 1960 is inspired by the punchy contrast, greens and yellows of this film!
I also added a little grain to this one, and Amelie was also one of the very first films Christian and I saw together (when we first met)! This preset looks really good with images taken in overcast weather or at dusk!
B&W - This one is inspired by the 1966 film ‘Au hasard Balthazar’. The preset is one of my favorites and It also works over images taken through windows, sheets of plastic or other filters, especially to let off the early 1900’s feel. (Which is heavily inspired by documentary style photography and this film as it is set in amongst poverty, however captures simple beauty in nature and people, which is also the goal of this one :)
Blue Ambient - I added this one as a contrast to the others, and also I personally love using blues to compliment warmer images. There is something that feels like home in blue light with a single light on in a house window or a candle around a dinner table. This always makes me excited to photograph people in this light as I feel it’s also extremely flattering. This preset was inspired by the series ‘Les Miserables’, (As well as so many other things), but I saw the series on a plane, and have to admit - I cried constantly (maybe it’s because watching movies on planes just makes you cry). Or the storyline alone is so strong, I was inspired to make something soft, to resemble twilight with blue shadows and peach highlights! This preset is made to use in ambient light, preferably twilight with a little warm contrasting light (like a candle or a lamp).
