So, about my Black and White Lightroom Presets.

It’s been a while, I know.

I’m sure many of you are in the same situation as me right now.  All my work has evaporated and I’m “locked down” with my family.

In this downtime, it has allowed me to finish a project I’d been starting (and not completing) on and off for the last year.

The astute amongst you will also have noticed a new menu item appearing – Monochrome.  This links to my other lockdown project The Ministry of Shadows which is dedicated to my love of monochromatic photography and film.

It’s on this website that I have launched……. my first set of professional Black and White Profile Based Presets.

Black and White Lightroom Presets Overview Video:

Take a look at this little video for more details including the profiles and system-based workflow.

This is Edition One of the Kevin Mullins Black & White Film Lightroom Presets.

This Lightroom Presets collection is more than just a series of pre-selected sliders.

These Black & White Film Lightroom Presets are built on carefully crafted profiles, generated with colour critical Look-Up Tables.

I have been editing my images for many years to closely replicate black and white film.  This collection gives you access to the very same developing process that I use for my professional photography.

The pack is inspired by my love of monochrome film and includes a full set of profiles, presets and utility options to recreate an extremely specific filmlike look for your black and white photographs.

You will not find a lengthy list of garish never-to-be used slider configurations in this pack.

What you will find is a crafted, subtle, set of film processes that will allow you a one-click system for black and white film emulation in a digital workflow.

Included is a bonus collection of my current favourite colour processing profiles also.

This is a digital product.  Upon purchase, you will receive an email to a download link that will be valid for 24 Hours.

This system is designed to be applied to any RAW file.  Some of the system processes will work on JPEG images too.

Requirements: This process pack requires Adobe Lightroom CC or Adobe Lightroom Classic 7.3 or newer. They will work with Windows and Mac operating systems.

The installation notes are included as a PDF in the digital download.

Workflow Based Processing

These Black and White Lightroom Presets are structured to aid your workflow.  A workflow might entail:

  • Selecting the Film Finish in group 1.
  • Selecting film grain in group 2.
  • Selecting the density in group 3.

Then using the utilities to finish of sharpening, vignette, and warmth.

During the COVID-19 Lockdown, I am offering the Black and White Lightroom Presets system for half price.
