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!

    I purchase Brick and Mortar presets few weeks ago, and used them extensively during this time. What I like generally for Sleeklens presets, is the fact that they are stackable, and this set makes no difference. Very usable for architecture, street and for real estate sales. Part of the set are variety of cinematic presets which can be used in other types of photos as well.

    I recently purchased both Brick and Mortar and Through the Woods. Although I do not usually write reviews, I thought that these products deserved some constructive comments.

    On the positive side, I was impressed with the adjustments I was able to make. The recipe lists are especially helpful for new users. I should be able to expand my results with a little more direct experience with these presets. Thank you.

    On the negative side, there are a few minor but irritating flaws. Could the names of the presets be a little more functionally descriptive? What does “Hollywoodified Misty Night” really look like? Or can you tell me what the “Royal Treatment” consists of? Wait dont tell me I dont want to know.

    Also due to the sheer number of brushes, it takes way too long to scroll through the list. I makes it almost too much trouble to use them. Maybe this is a Lightroom problem or maybe I installed them wrong, but the list of dozens of brushes are just too long to be practical.

    Despite the flaws listed above, I am still happy with my purchase and I would recommend these presests to others.

    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.

    Wunderbares Preset. Klare Empfehlung. Die Bildergebnisse und die Zeitersparnis beim Bearbeiten sind sehr gut.

    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!
