The ‘300’ Look

Tonight I was browsing Google+ when I saw a post from Lightroom guru Matt Kloskowski talking about his 300 preset for Lightroom. I just purchased the program so I have not really messed around with any presets yet. I did like the visual imagery of that movie so I decided to give it a try. I wanted an action shot to test it on so I pulled up some of the pictures from a West Lafayette JV game that I took earlier in the year. I thought that the red uniforms would really help the look. I like how the image turned out, and I think that if I spent more time tweaking the file it would look better. I also used a jpeg to make this instead of a RAW so I need to try that out as well. At the end of the day I think that gritty presets like this are something that I will really be looking into. I like the look, and as I learn how to navigate Lightroom a bit better I think that I can incorporate some of this stuff into my work. I learned another tip from Matt tonight as well, but I will save that for a future post.
