I have been processing a range of autumn photos for a project. The photos were captured at the very beginning of October when there was still plenty of green foliage rather than the reds and yellows associated with autumn.
A number of people have emailed me about the processing so I thought I would make the processing available in the form of a free Lightroom preset. You can view my other free lightroom presets here.
Free Lightroom Preset : FlixelPix Vintage Autumn
As well and enhance the traditional colour of autumn I added a level of desaturation to create a vintage feel to the overall look of the image.
Post Process Tips
When you apply the preset the three sliders that you may want to adjust are ‘Exposure’,’Clarity’ ‘Saturation’. I tend to increase the clarity to bring out the detail and reduce the saturation to enhance the vintage feel. Some users may wish to add some vignette as a final touch. This preset was created in Adobe Lightroom 5.
