Complicated, fantasy-themed photoshoots are nothing short of inspiring. We all dream of having the opportunity to recreate fairytales using outfits and locations that are almost magical. Fortunately, ethereal portraits don’t always depend on expensive props and equipment – they can be recreated in an editing program within minutes.
A handy alternative to fantasy-themed shoots is Lightroom. In it, you can transform the simplest photos into outstanding ones. To achieve this effect, all you need is the program itself. To make your photos really stand out, use one of MCP’s Lightroom preset packs. I used the Inspiration pack to edit the photos in this tutorial.
Though presets are optional, using them will provide you with a great creative base to work with. Presets are masters at enhancing colors and can be used generously. In the example below, the preset helped me save time by fixing harsh colors and making adjustments in panels I usually spend a lot of time in.
And there you have it! This tutorial will work wonders for photographers who want to add a magical twist to their portfolios once in a while. Thanks to MCP’s presets and Lightroom’s adjustment tools, creating ethereal portraits is an easy and effortless process.
But don’t stop there. Experiment with various colors, presets, and compositions. Work with simple and detailed photographs. Before you know it, you’ll be finding potential in every photograph you own. Your clients will be impressed, your portfolio will grow, and your creativity will thrive endlessly!
