MadCraft Lightroom Preset Pack – Early 2016

I like to use Lightroom for editing the photos that I shoot on the road. For each event I try to create a different recognizable look, which I then save as a Lightroom presets. Usually I’ve shared only one preset at a time, but now I decided to gather all presets from late 2015 to early 2016 in one zip-file. I ended up with this period, because all of these presets were made for photos shot with Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark 2. […] Read more!
