Lightroom 6 Presets For Music Photographers

Lightroom 6 Presets for Music Photographers

A lot of people have asked if I will be providing Lightroom 6 Presets for music photographers?

Well, after the success of my 10 Lightroom 5 Presets for 2 bucks I’m stoked to announce I’ve put together a new pack of 15 for only 3 bucks specifically for Lightroom 6!

Just as last time, these presets are not ONLY strictly for music photographers, but it is how I have used them for my own needs. I’m certain lots of photographers will find them totally useful in many other instances.

All 15 presets were created in Adobe Lightroom 6, so no process updating necessary 🙂

The download contains the following Lightroom 6 Presets: Jump The Chain, Prawns In The Sun, Crusty, Way To Go Mate, Fled Smith, Hide Your Cop Car, Shinner, Curb, Hot Carving, Grazzla, Hit The Rip, Stoinker, Mob, No Avil and I Stubbed My Toe In Practice.

LOOKING FOR LIGHTROOM 5 PRESETS?

Of course, if you are running Lightroom 5 you can still nab the original 10 Lightroom 5 Presets for 2 bucks over here, however to provide even more value I’m also offering a bundle pack of those 10 presets updated to Lightroom 6 plus the 15 above as one package for $3.50.

That’s 25 music presets all ready to rumble in Lightroom 6 for only $3.50!

Lightroom 6 Presets for Music Photographers contains the 15 presets as below (mouse over to see each in action).

1. Jump The Chain
The most used preset up first: all music photographers need a red light fixer!! Jump The Chain is your answer!

2. Prawns In The Sun
Not happy with Jump The Chain returning a colour image? How about this preset which kills all those nasty reds and also packs a nice punchy b/w conversion.

3. Crusty
How many times have you had to deal with heinous green LED lighting? Too many times!! This preset named Crusty will save you a bunch of tweaking later. Take that stupid LED’s!!

4. Way To Go Mate
A slight orange cast from a mix of stage lighting? No sweat, hit your image with Way To Go Mate like this example and BAM!

How many carrots did she eat? None!

5. Fled Smith
Did you totally stuff up and underexpose or was the lighting just that inconsistent the only frame you want to keep would normally hit the trash? Fled Smith can help!

This preset will give you a saving hand, while adding a useable bunch of noise and dirt.

Who said you can’t polish a turd?

6. Hide Your Cop Car
Exposing for darker skin can be tricky. In this example my preset helped correct the colours of the clothing without affecting the skin tones. You will probably need to tweak this sucker a fair bit for your own needs, to be honest, the lighting on this shot was pretty damn good to begin with.

7. Shinner
Here’s a nearly perfect b/w when you have decent lighting conditions to begin with!

A lot of music photographers will convert to b/w because the lighting was rubbish at the time of shooting, but what if you get a fair decent amount of workable light and you still wish to covert? Using Shinner you will get a great result like this one!

8. Curb
Punchy b/w’s are your thing? Great!! This preset will help twist those orange tones we all loathe into nice and punchy b/w’s even your mum will love.

9. Hot Carving
Did you lean to far on the highlights? Are they slightly blown out but recoverable? Apply a dose of Hot Carving and you’ll save your image like the example here.

10. Grazzla
Arggghhh!! More LED’s!

It’s bad enough when a couple of lights in the bank are LED’s, but what do you do when the ENTIRE rig is made up of these cheap, nasty suckers?? You smack Grazzla all over the final image and come away with something workable such as this.

11. Hit The Rip
What’s with those pink LED’s that make your subject look like they should be in a deli amongst the Cabanossi, Salami and various wursts? Who ever thought this would look good to a punter, let alone a photographer?

The only solution for me in that instance is to Hit The Rip.

12. Stoinker
Split toning can be very effective in recovering shadows on a subject that has various amounts of light within the entire image.

I particularly like the toning in this preset and come back to it regularly.

13. Mob
A subtle preset, useful when you’ve missed exposure by only a smidgen and there is a leaning towards the red (urghhh!!) end of the colour spectrum.

14. No Avil
Blue LED lighting can be a royal pain the ass just like red.

Enter No Avil, a preset to conquer the deepest, most lousiest, most suckful blues you will come across.

This will save you. Thank me now.

15. I Stubbed My Toe In Practice
Thought I’d finish up with something totally different for my style of shooting.

Outdoor gigs in natural lighting will benefit from this preset as I Stubbed My Toe In Practice lightens everything substantially, blending a neutral tonality across the image.

True, it lends itself more to a fashion shoot, however under the correct circumstances and for the right band it can work really well.

    • Very nicely done Zajda!! You’ve correctly named all the 15 🙂 What’s your email address and I’ll send you the Bundle pack of Lightroom 6 Presets which also includes my Lightroom 5 Presets 🙂

      Thanks also for the nice words mate 🙂

  • These presets are great. I like to make my own LED neutralising presets but one doesn’t work on every photo.
    I bought this really inexpensive set mainly for another Red LED blitzing option but found the others really took several of my images in a totally different direction that I could tweak to my liking.
    Thanks Benon!

    • Thanks Ben 🙂 Yeah that pesky red lighting is made even worse when its LED’s!! arghhh!!!

      Nice set from the Misfits mate. Also looks like a small crowd? Weird as I thought these guys would still pull a large amount to shows.

      Thanks again for the support bud 🙂

      • About 600 at this one. I’ve seen them on bigger stages in the UK over the last few years but they still regularly do massive shows in the US and South America.

        • They’re touring here soon, but I’ll miss it unfortunately. 🙁

  • Christopher Sant

    I just purchased the lightroom 5 bundle about an hour ago and just discovered your super bundle for $3.50. Any way to upgrade the package?

    • Hey Chris, unfortunately, no there’s no upgrade possible. What I would recommend is holding out for LR 7 bundle when it comes 🙂

  • Michael Helmer

    I can’t seem to purchase this package is it still available?

    • Hey Michael, yeah it’s definitely still available. No one else is having trouble, whats the issue you are having?

      • Michael Helmer

        same as the others have mentioned – I click and go to a page that says your cart is empty

        • Thanks Michael. I can confirm there was an issue with the plugin I use for payment, it’s now been resolved 🙂 You should have no probs now 🙂

  • Is the package 25 presets still available? because I cant seem to be able to get past the buy option… the following appears…

    Checkout

    Your cart is empty.
    [sell_media_checkout]

    Would love to get the package 🙂

    • Something sounds off here man, when you click the link in the screen shot it takes you directly to the paypal payment page, not a cart option. Try refreshing your cache?

  • SoundRitual Photos

    Hi…i get the same message as Quentin (your cart is empty)…tried 2 browsers and clearing the cache but neither works. Its the same message whether i apply for the LR5 or 6 plug in

    • Apologies mate, there was an issue with the plugin I use to collect payment, I can report that it is now resolved 🙂 Thanks for the alert!

  • Michael Helmer

    Thank you so much for fixing that plugin, can’t wait to start using these presets!

    • cheers Michael 🙂 Appreciate the patience mate.
      Make sure you post a link to how you’ve used the presets!!!

  • Jean-Marc Schneider

    I’ve found these presets very useful and have already used them for a lot of pics taken under blue led light 🙁
    Very good results for a cheap investment. Thks !

    • Thanks so much Jean-Marc 🙂 Really appreciate the support! Can you post a before shot too so we can see the preset working all it’s glory?

  • Paul Dowd

    Hey mate, clicked the link for the 25 presets bundle, went to paypal, made payment and then nothing. No zip file anywhere to download. Any advice?

    • Hey Paul, first up check your spam/junk folder as a lot of people have reported the email going there…

      • Paul Dowd

        yep… I’m a dickhead.. All good. Cheers mate..

        • heheh, we’re all dickheads 🙂

  • John de Haan

    Gday Ben, will those presets work in Lr CC?

    • Yeah John, they will 🙂

      • John de Haan

        Cheers mate I might as well grab them for those bad shots.

        • 🙂 nice one. Let me know how they have helped you man

          • John de Haan

            So where will I find the zip file Ben?

            • John, check your downloads folder. Once you click the link in the email the presets are downloaded to wherever you direct your downloads to save on your machine.

              • John de Haan

                Yep. there they are cheers mate.

                • Good work man 🙂

                    • Damn! rub it on 😉

  • Na La

    Hi Ben, I byed presets but I had some problems with download. Now I can’t repeat the download because: Sorry but you have hit your download limit for this file.
    But I didn’t get any file 🙁

    • Na La

      All right, it’s done. I found the file 🙂

      • Was gonna suggest checking your downloads folder, but it looks like you’ve worked it out 🙂 Cheers for the support mate!

  • Jérémie Strogonoff

    Hey !
    I payed for both your presets packs and I didn’t receive anything (except for the paypal payment confirmation). Can you send me the presets manually ? I checked my spam folder but it’s empty (ukarage at yahoo.fr)

    • Jérémie Strogonoff

      I received the files, it took 45 minutes to get to my inbox.

      • Cheers mate, glad they came through.

        For anyone else with this issue I’ve noticed the server sometimes being a little slow 🙁 Patience pets!

  • RobxJean Hadley

    Hi

    I bought the preset pack…downloaded and used no problem at all.As you say they are a good starting point but be ready to tweak as needed. No tweaking on this shot of Billy Bragg I took at Moseley Folk Festival. The as taken shot then using Fled Smith preset.I love the look it gives.Rob

    • Nice feedback Rob, I really appreciate it!! Unfortunately it looks like your image has not posted both times 🙁 Keen to see it tho, so try again with the upload?

      • RobxJean Hadley

        I have re sent them so hope you can check them out. The More I have used the presets the more I like them.

  • RobxJean Hadley

    Not sure if the sample photos showed up in my post so added them here.

    • Just saw these for the first time – great work Rob!

      • RobxJean Hadley

        Thank you. The presets work well.Though as you say it is not one fits all which is fine.Experiment a bit…which is so easy to do in Lightroom and find what works for your images.

        • Yeah these are a good starting place only I think 🙂

  • RobxJean Hadley
  • Allyson McGrory

    will these presets work with Lightroom CC? =)

    • BJWOK

      Yep, they will work on CC
