Lightroom Presets for SeaScapes

These free Beach Lightroom presets are intended as a starting point for editing your own images and may require additional adjustments. Each Lightroom Preset gives a glimpse into my way of editing the RAW images.
They have been specially developed for cameras with a high dynamic range (I myself work with a Pentax 645Z medium format camera). For example, do you see parts in your photo that are getting overexposed? Then adjust the highligts.

They can help you as a starting point for your image editing of five common lighting situations.

  • Color Explosion
  • Enhanced Ocean Sunset
  • Blue Hour Sunset
  • Summer vibes
  • Afternoon Beach

The “Colour Explosion” preset for Lightroom or Photoshop focuses on strengthening the contrasts and increasing the color saturation in particular. The sometimes slightly overexposed parts where the sun can still be seen are slightly corrected by adjusting the exposure on the highlights.

The “Enhanced Ocean Sunset” enhances the warm tones and gives a slight boost to the blue sky. Small adjustments in highlights and shadows ensure a fresh image.

The “Blue Hour Sunset” I developed for those evenings when I'm still shooting long after sunset. The blue of the blue hour then dominates enormously (especially on cloudy days). This preset corrects this blue tint and adds some more contrast in the highlights.

“Summer sunset” enhances the warm glow of the sun. An excellent basis to which you can add further adjustments yourself to transform the image into your own summer vibe!

In the Netherlands, the light is sometimes a bit flat and little sparkling. “Afternoon Beach” ensures that your image gets a refresh.
