100 Lightroom presets and nothing looks good

Today is turning out to be one of those rare days when none of my Lightroom presets look vaguely appealing.

I usually use a selection of VSCO Lightroom presets when I edit my photos.

Today is turning out to be one of those rare days when none of my presets look vaguely appealing. It’s very frustrating. No matter what I use, the previews don’t come close to what I’m aiming for.

Fortunately the more natural look is working for me today. Still, this is clearly one of those days when using shortcuts like presets just isn’t working out for me …

I find editing photos takes so much time and mental effort and often think editing text is easier.

Oh sure, it definitely is but as a photographer it has its rewards too.

For sure; a photo (or video) adds a lot to a story and often tells a story on its own.
