Brick and Mortar Workflow

When it comes to architectural photography, not only do we have to think about lighting, contrasts, and magnifying the beauty of the building and even the composition of its environment, but we must also think about our photographic equipment. And, perhaps even more important than your camera + lens combo is making sure you have the right set of tools available, in order to end up with the highest quality result in your post production work.

Well, the right set of tools is here! The “Brick and Mortar Workflow” from Sleeklens will give you everything that you will need to get the best from your architectural photos. Maybe enhance those photos that you took while sightseeing in Venice or wherever your travels may have taken you, giving the images the feeling of what is was like, surrounded by all of that beautiful architecture. Whether you are shooting on modern city streets or in a historic or scenic town, with this workflow you will have all of the right tools, giving you the ability to easily create stunning images that will be enjoyed by your friends or clients alike.

Enhance lighting, enrich colors, adjust shadows and much, much more, allowing your photos to tell their own stories and share the experience of that particular place. Give color and life back to photos that may have come out a little more flat or duller than you remember it being when the photograph was taken, getting the buildings and their environments just right using the stackable presets – that won’t cancel each other’s effect – and brushes for local adjustments in our Brick and Mortar workflow. And of course, like the other Lightroom workflows created by Sleeklens, this tool will help you cut down dramatically on editing time.

Now you can take a step further in your career as a professional street and city photographer – regardless of the camera equipment you use, you will find yourself using these presets and brushes over and over for bringing the most of your shooting sessions – truly lifelong companions for the keen photographer. Get ready to discover a whole new way of editing architectural photographs with the help of street/city and building Lightroom workflow!

    So happy to have found Sleeklens! These presets and brushes are exactly what I needed for my architectural photos! The Brick and Mortar brushes and presets quickly and easily add that pop to flat images. I love how much this has sped up my workflow.

    These presets are a nice addition to lightroom for architectural photos. They have saved me significant time in editing street scenes.

    I’m an architecture enthousiast so 75% of my pics consist of cityscapes, monuments, buildings etc. As the weather is not mine to determine, some citytrips encounter a watery haze so that my photos lose a lot of color and look a bit dreary.
    I found out that the “brick and mortar workflow” is a perfect solution in those situations. I’m glad I purchased it!

    Great workflow. Good range of presets and brushes that make post processing that much more efficient.

    Truly the easiest presets and brushes to use. I’ve searched for a long period to find presets this good for my photos, and here is where i found it. Sleeklens makes it so easy to dial up a photo with professional results. Definitely telling my classmates to shop here for all their workflow and presets needs.

    I’ve been into photography since I was a child. I was aways at the mercy of the light which nature provided, but this pack of presets has changed all of that. I have been using Lightroom for somewhere around five years. I would tweak and nudge settings and and often get near the desired results. The brushes and presets designed by Sleekness have opened up a whole world of possibilities for me. I find myself going back to my backup hard drives and rescuing photos which I had written off as not good enough to work with. The previews of the presets allow you to quickly explore the possibilities of your photos, which you can then adjust with supplied brushes.
    Now that I am using the Sleeklens presets, I notice photos in magazines which probably started as dull and flat, but were turned into visually exciting treasures.

    As a residential / commercial real estate photographer, I’m always looking for ways to speed up the turnaround processing time. Considering I do all of my own processing, and I’m rather fussy about what I turn over to the client, I won’t use just any software. It must be professional and consistent. I picked up the Brick & Mortar Workflow for Lightroom just recently, and it delivers what it promises. Quick, professional look, easy to use, consistent, reasonably priced, and stackable.
