Memories are very important. The problems with memories is that they fade over time and in a few months or years, we usually have a problem remembering the finer details of a day or a situation. This is why you are encouraged to take photographs of your newborn baby as soon as you can. The photographs will lock in all the goodness of those first few days or months and it will not fade into oblivion like most memories do. The problem with newborn photography is that it is very delicate. If you would like to produce flattering images, you have to ensure that you have the right set of tools and a good eye so as to produce photographs that are going to be a delight for other people to see for years to come.
One of the most important tools to have in your arsenal in this regard is the Newborn delight workflow. This workflow is a collection of presets and brushes that are especially geared towards newborn photography. The presets allow you to add soft colors, tones and contrasts as well as adjust the skin of the babies so as to have the best images possible. In addition to all this, there are light adjustment presets that let you adjust the way light is shed upon your newborns. This is very important, especially if you are shooting indoors.
Inside the newborn delight bundle you will find presets that do all kinds of things as we have seen above. Perhaps the most important thing to note at this point is that all of the presets are stackable. What this means is that you have the ability to add two or even more presets to a single images without the effects looking a bit weird or canceling each other out. All the presets included in this workflow bundle work together to bring out the best of each other.
Although the presets will work together to give you amazing looks and flattering results, the one thing that we have found to be of immense value is the use of adjustment brushes. The newborn brushes that are included in this workflow will allow you to edit tiny parts of the image at a time for an ever more refined look. You can edit the eyes, lips, skin or even the whole image if you like. The end result of this is an image that is of a much better quality.
Apart from being stackable, all the presets included in the Newborn delights workflow produce non-destructive edits if you use them on RAW images. What this means is that it is very easy for you to undo all the changes that you make and revert your images to their original for. This is very important if you are looking to try out different presets before settling on a few that you like. This is also very important if you would like to stack your newborn presets as it lets you try a few presets without the risk of ruining the original images you have.
The capabilities of Adobe Lightroom are endless. This is the reason why the newborn presets included in the Newborn Delights bundle are editable. Although all the presets are impressive in their own right, there may come a time when you need to create your own presets. This is where the ability to edit these presets will come in handy. All you have to do is save the newly edited presets for later use as copies. Losing them would mean that you edited the original presets for nothing.
