Portrait photography can be tricky, especially if you really need to get the color, contrasts, shadows and even the quality of the final images right. This is why we created our ”Strike a Pose” workflow.
This Presets workflow bundle will allow you to adjust tones, improve colors and contrasts and to bring to the forefront the best versions of your images. The most impressive aspect of this bundle is that you can use it to give your subjects flawless skin. With this workflow, you no longer have to be worried about your subject’s skin not looking as good as you would like it to.

There are lots of professional Lightroom Presets to choose from, therefore you are going to have a really easy time finding the preset that works best with your type of photography. Our ”Strike a Pose” workflow is also special in that it really helps improve the overall quality of your images. There are not very many preset bundles that are able to do this, which makes this workflow a must have.

In our ”Strike a Pose” workflow collection, you will find over 69 Presets and 62 Brushes. These Lightroom Presets for photographers will allow you to apply a wide range of effects and adjustments to your images. It is important to keep in mind that these adobe Lightroom Presets only make non-destructive changes. What this means, is that you can revert back to the original image if you make any mistakes. A copy is also saved of your image on which you actually make your edits, instead of making direct changes to the original. This is especially important if you would like to try out a number of different presets without stacking them.


What is preset stacking?

There may come a time that you may need to apply two or more presets to a single image. Most presets either cancel each other out or the effects do not look realistic. This can be a huge problem, especially if you would like to present your work as being professionally done. The presets in our ”Strike a Pose” workflow are stackable, meaning that their effects actually complement each other. If you find that some aspects of your images do not look like you expected, you can use the brushes that are available to make any necessary adjustments.

The brushes included in our ”Strike a Pose” workflow bundle allow you to edit and adjust small parts of the images for a more refined finish. These brushes will let you adjust almost any aspect of your images like the contrasts, tones, sharpness and clarity ensuring that the end result is an absolute masterpiece.


Who can use this Portrait bundle?

Our ”Strike a Pose” workflow bundle is meant for people who do portrait photography, whose main subjects are humans. For this reason, our ”Strike a Pose” workflow has been specifically created to enhance and produce flawless skin while still allowing you to adjust tones, highlights and more. This workflow bundle is truly one of the best Lightroom Presets for portraits.

If you are a designer who works with Adobe Lightroom a lot, you may be excited to learn that all of the Presets and Brushes included in this bundle are editable. This means that apart from stacking the presets to come up with some unique effects and styles, you can also edit these Adobe Lightroom Portrait Presets to come up with new ones. Making the ”Strike a Pose” workflow just a starting point, where your destination really depends on how curious you are and how creative would like to be.

Don’t forget to download the free presets for portraits sample you can get download by clicking on the “sample and recipe” tab. It is a great way to test this bundle out before buying it.

    My first purchase at Sleeklens, and i’m very happy of it!
    Very easy to install (thanks for the tuto), easy to use, quick and efficient.
    A must have in my workflow now.
    And the first results seems good to my eyes.

    This does seem to be a very useful set of presets and brushes, a distinct and helpful supplement to a lot of the free presets that are available out there.

    Very easy to use. Took a minute to download the presets, but a simple google search fixed the issue. Great quality product at first blush, no pun intended.

    I’m really happy with the brushes and presets. They make the workflow so much faster. I love that they are adjustable and that you can also layer the effects.

    These are some of the best presets I have ever purchased, also the price can not be beat. The best part is the ability to build layers with some of the presets. That way you can customize and create different looks more than the just the 69 that come with the bundle. I will be purchasing more in the future.

    Working with the presets since a few days. There are a few presets of wich i know i’ll going to use them regularly.
    In the future more Sleeklens Presets will take place in my workflow.
