I hope you are all fit and well. Sometimes being confined to one space brings not only the worst out of people but also it can make you very productive. It can also make you think outside the box for other things for example. I am sat at my dining room table with my Mac set up and not a meal and also a C-Stand with boom arm and a Rode shotgun mic. My DSLR is on a tripod across the table and my wife is going mad because she has no room to work from home.
Anyway, the most exciting part is that I have finished my Ian Munro Cine LUT pack and I can now bring it forward for release. I really enjoyed creating this pack even though it’s time-consuming. It will save you a hell of a lot of time with your workflow and I have tried to include a little bit for every type of photographer. Even though I photograph people and characters I have a lot of experience in other genres like landscape and I have even done still life. My thought process was to take a RAW image from my hard drive of most genres and edit them the way I would if I was to present or sell the image. The looks varied but every style was completed with care and must say I am happy with the results.
You will get not only 30 LUT presets but also a fantastic in-depth PDF of the pack and a how-to install them. You will also get a quick video tutorial giving you an idea of how to work with them. They are compatible with Adobe Creative Cloud only so make sure that you are bang up to date on that. I have also named them with my initials IM in front so that they sit in your library in sequence.
The way they work is very simple. It is entirely up to you if you use one preset or stack ten, it’s simply what gets the look you need. Don’t forget to use different blend modes and also drop the opacity if it’s too harsh. Very often one LUT is not as good as when another is stacked. Also, be mindful of using a layer mask and simply brush out the areas where you do not need the LUT effect.
They are out for release in my website shop at midnight tonight the 25th of March. There will be an early bird offer of £12.50 before returning to the normal price of £22 on April 1st. Yes, that’s right don’t be a fool and miss out…………… couldn’t resist that one!
I would love to see what you create with the pack and why not get in touch and show me some of your images with the presets in action.
Thanks for the support you are showing and I will endeavour to bring you more good content soon.
