Gray Bale

Gray Bale

As I have mentioned before, I edit my photos in Adobe Lightroom, and in Lightroom you can load presets created by other people and you can also create your own presets and save them for later use. When I first started photo editing in LR I scoured the interwebs for free presets that I could play around with on my own photos and learn how they were created. Over time I started to develop my own presets, some based off of others that I found and more recently, others that I completely created on my own through lots of trial and error. Even more recently I created this black and white preset while working on portrait shots that I have taken and then realized that they might look pretty good on some of my landscape photos. Here is an example. I like to play around with black & white or more specifically monochrome edits (since this one is exactly black & white but a toned image) because they add so much drama to a photo and it's fun to see what you can get out of such a seemingly simple editing style.

This hay bale comes to you from Carroll County just across the Montgomery County line near Carrollton. A common scene in Mississippi.
