Light is one of the most important aspects of photography. This is because it allows the photographer to not only see his subjects, but to also judge colors and contrasts correctly, allowing them to look their best when the photographs are printed. The problem is that something might go wrong out on the field: the setting on the camera may not be right or the photographer may be unable to judge the light hitting his subjects correctly. The end result of this being that the photographs are underexposed. This is a phenomenon that is known as “bad light” in the photography world and can be a deal breaker, especially if the photographs that you are taking are for a client.
The good news is that if you have some skills using Adobe Lightroom, you may just be able to save your images. The problem with this is that you might spend hours upon hours tinkering with settings and adjustments to make sure that the photographs turn out just right. However, there is a better way. If you are looking to save your work and produce professional grade photographs in a very short time, it is imperative that you learn how to use Adobe Lightroom Presets.
The presets included in the ”Chasing Light” workflow work really well with photographs that are taken in natural light to fix underexposure. These adobe Lightroom portrait presets allow you to get creative with light, contrasts and shadows to produce the best versions of the images that you have.
As their name suggests, these are settings that are saved in small files that can be used to add effects to an image, sometimes as fast as a click and sometimes after a few adjustments are made. The best thing about The ”Chasing Light” workflow is that it comes with both Presets and Brushes. The Presets allow you to edit and add different effects to whole image, while the Brushes let you edit specific parts of the image.
The Presets that are included in this bundle are stackable. What this means is that it is possible to use one, two or more presets on the same image. You see, most presets usually cancel each other out and the images that you produce using such presets will usually end up with the effect that you added last, which isn’t always the ideal result. With the presets included in the ”Chasing Light” workflow, that is something you won’t have to worry about.
It’s true that the use of two or more presets of a single image may produce photographs whose colors or contrasts may be a little bit overwhelming, this is where the Adobe Lightroom Adjustment Brushes come in. These brushes allow you to edit tiny, specific parts of the image as mentioned above. For example, if you find that some of the color, contrasts or even shadows do not look right, you can edit them with the brushes to your satisfaction. This is very important if you are looking to produce professional photographs and images.
As you can see, the ”Chasing Light” workflow bundle contains everything you need to produce high quality images. The one thing that you have to keep in mind is that if you start off with high quality images, you are going to end up with a much better end result. This is why it is very important to make sure that the images that you take in the first place are of the highest quality. Ensure that your camera setting are just right and judge the light correctly because although, Presets and Brushes may help improve your images, they will not be of too much help if the images you have in the first place are not stellar quality.

I really like the Chasing Light Workflow, I use it for my flower photography to enhance the light, using the all in one elements or layering them.
All presets are very good but you need a good selection of them to apply to each photo style. I think I just need to master photography better before I can take full advantage of them
Sometimes they are a bit much, but a little tweaking solves that problem. I've had a couple shoots where i was able to just lay the preset down and nothing more was needed.
I prefer natural light, even with portraits. This has sped up and expanded my workflow. Thanks!
I have bough other lightroom presets none of them can be compare to chasing light, one of the best i have ever used.
Love these presets. Really helps reduce time with workflow
Super Presets, schade dass ich erst jetzt drauf gekommen bin. Erspart mir einiges an Arbeit und die Ergebnisse sind super:-)
Chasing the light is the one set of presets I consistently use. If you need assistance sleeklens is there for you. I highly recommend buying products from this company
Recently purchased Chasing Light Workflow for Lightroom. It saves a decent amount of time. The base presets tend to be more out there colors such as pink/purple tints. The brushes are nice, however I feel like one could make them without purchasing this package. I would have wished to bought the overall portraits package which would have been a better deal than this one alone. How often do I use this? Occasionally for the color corrections along with two of the presents out of the total package. I also use the brushes. I am not 100% sure it was worth the price I paid.
The "Chasing Light Workflow" allows you to take photos from flat to fantastic in just a few clicks of the mouse. Great product!
I’m very happy with the Chasing Light and Strike a Pose collection. I highly recommend these collections.
I was very satisfied with the landscape pack, so I bought this one, it´s a fantastic preset/brush, I recommend it.
This is my second purchase from sleeklens and I am more than satisfied, prior to purchase I chatted with someone online who helped me decide what to purchase and it was exactely what I needed for my edits!! Thank you!
The chasing light workflow is amazing! These presets really made working in lightroom so much easier and quicker. I found the brighten and darken brushes real life savers in working with the lighting in my photos.
These presets are awesome! Really helped take my photos to the next level! They are super easy to use, and allow you to develop some cool photos. Definitely going to check out more of them!
I am new to this level of retouching and other companies don’t offer brushes with their presets. The biggest original draw to sleeklens for me was the inclusion of brushes!. Sleeklens made it easy with the recipe books and videos. With the recipe and videos I was able to follow along with my own photos to easily produce the same looks and learn. I’m a big fan of sleeklens and look forward to more products and tutorials.
Great presets! I've used this set on several high school senior pics I shot out in the country. Love them!
Very good preset! So far I have only used it with wildlife photos and it has worked great. Excited to try it with people!
Thanks for doing all the work for me! So easy to use and the results are great! I can't wait to try your other presets.
I really enjoyed these presets. My only complaint would be that some of them are a bit too harsh and needed some tweaking to fit my style. Overall they helped shorten my workflow. Good quality. Will buy again.
