Autumn is my favourite season for photography. The golden hour falls perfectly and brings out the rich red gold tones of the autumn fall. Last year I developed a Lightroom preset that brings out the golden leaves and tones and offers a vintage feel, you can download it here: Lightroom Preset (Autumn).
When I was using the preset this year I felt there was some compromise on skin tones so I have developed a new lightroom preset that enhances the bokeh but retains the true skin colour (and eye colour) as much as possible.
As you can see in this image it is a subtle preset that focuses on the red hues of the image but retains the depth of the skin tones. I have been working on the preset for a few weeks with RAW images from the Fujifilm X-Trans sensor although I suspect it will be equally as useful on RAW files from other camera sensors. The image was captured on the Fujfilm X-E2 and the brilliant 56mm lens.
