Lightroom Presets from Nichole V

by Erin Peloquin on December 13, 2010 · 0 comments

Lightroom Presets aren’t something that I’ve used a whole lot in the past.  But Nichole V recently ran a big sale on her presets, and I thought I’d give them a try.  Her photography (especially with off-camera lighting) is jaw-dropping.  Part of me was hoping that some of that talent would rub off on me if I bought one of her products. . . .

I have to say that I’m liking the Lightroom presets a lot.  I’ve discovered one (Midtone Boost from the Proofing Collection) that is very similar to one of my favorites from MCP – the Magic Midtone Lifter from Bag of Tricks.

Of course, the Presets don’t work in Elements, so if you are a die-hard Elements user, you’re lucky to have Bag of Tricks.

One thing I like about Lightroom presets is that they teach me tricks about Lightroom that I probably wouldn’t have tried on my own.  (I actually first became interested in actions because they taught me so much about PSE!)  Nichole’s Midtone Boost pushes settings to extents that I wouldn’t normally have approached, but it works!

And from her Color Set, I love NV Faded.  Here is the before:

And the after:

So if you’re a Lightroom user interested in presets, Nichole V would be a good vendor to try out.  Each collection contains well over 20 settings – more than I’ve been able to try yet.  Nichole V just release a new free holiday card template on her blog too – even if you’re not a Lightroom user, check out the card.  It’s beautiful!
