Did you know that taking the pictures is only half of the work? Presets are a game changer and they are a great way to find your own style and experiment with your work. I encourage you to watch the magic happen as you apply the preset and then adjust it and work with it to make it your own! Over the years I have had so much fun figuring out my editing style and I am so excited to share some of my favorite presets with you! Setting them up doesn't take long at all and in the end it will save you so much time. To make it even easier for you.... I'm going to take you step by step and help you take your pictures to the next level.

Lightroom is hands down my favorite editing software. When I first started getting into photography, I was importing one picture at a time to photoshop and manually adjusting each image, manually placing my watermark on it, and exporting each image Don't even try to think about how long it took... I'll answer it. Way too long. So I am here to help you cut your editing process in half all while finding your own creative style! Presets and editing styles can take the same image and change the mood of it completely. So I encourage you to take my presets and tweak them, play around with them, and get creative until you find your personal style!

I can't wait to see your images so make sure to tag #CaitlinChriseneePresets for a chance to be featured on my Instagram!!
