CoffeeShop "Basic B&W" Lightroom Preset Collection!

I don't usually create many Lightroom presets since I am a huge fan of using the gorgeous presets from Pretty Presets. Pretty Presets also is one of my sponsors of this site and  they posted an amazing special today on the Pretty  Film Pastel preset collection! I have these presets and they are incredibly beautiful.

I love B&W and wanted to create some classic B&W presets with different amounts of contrast that I could easily adjust for each image. I am really proud of this set, I think the B&W conversion is so nice on so many images.

This Lightroom preset collection has 2 basic B&W presets, with and without vignette. I usually don't have to adjust them too much after running them on an image, but if I do want to make minor changes  I generally adjust the Exposure and/or Contrast sliders on top.

I hope you enjoy using these presets!!! And I would love to see your own edits using these presets on my Facebook page.

I posted a few examples below.

And my CoffeeShop Action and Preset Pack has all of my favorite Lightroom presets along with the Photoshop/PSE Actions.

  1. I also really like Pretty Presets and use them quite a bit for my work with Pink Spruce Photography (and I found them via your blog, actually). But, these B&W presets you have created are fantastic, great job and thank you!

    1. I love hearing that you use Pretty Presets! I love their presets. And thank you so much for your kind comments about my B&W ones! It was funny, I just set some auto settings in Lightroom and then started playing around and suddenly I found out I loved the edit. It has been fun to design a few presets after making so many actions.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a message, I love reading them! All comments are personally moderated by me and I will post and answer them them as soon as possible.
