Hi all. I was reading an article that discussed whether paying for Lightroom Presets is good. The article basically said paying for LR Presets is a waste because they don't allow for creativity. I tend to disagree with this because I will use a Preset as a starting point sometimes when I edit my photos. I also tend to make my own presets as I edit my photos. If I like the way I edited my photo, I save it. Usually, when I am taking photos, I tend to visualize how I would like the photo to look in the end. Black and white, a painting, soft and dreamy, etc. Presets can also be helpful as they can spark an idea and sometimes give a look that may not have even come to mind. So with that said, do you use LR presets? Have you paid for any? Which ones? When I signed up for LR last year, I was thinking of getting RNI films and Mastin Labs (I love the film look for some of my photos) and I also read about Presets from Sleeklens and SLR Lounge. I haven't bought any yet as I have been using the ones that came with LR. I do use NIK and Topaz Studio, too. Just wondering what everyone thought and used for Presets, that's all.
