Photo editing with Sleeklens

October 23, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

A few weeks ago I was contacted by a company called Sleeklens.com in regards to testing out one of their photo editing software presets packages. Normally I'm not a big preset kinda guy when it comes to image editing but I thought why not,  plus "Jane" the person who contacted me was really nice and it's not everyday I get someone asking me to test there product! Anyways, after going out the other morning to shoot some new material for this particular project I decided to use the following image. This first image is SOOC. The following image is edited in Lightroom CC.

You can see the the image was mildly under exposed, it was 8:12 in the morning and sunrise that day was at 8:17 on this side of the world. Camera settings were 1/15 sec at f/11 ISO 800. I was shooting with a Canon 6D fitted with my trusty 24-105 mm f/4 L IS. Now this second image below is where it got interesting. Just with one click of the Sleeklens "Through the Woods" landscape photography preset fittingly titled "Dawn Rising" the photo transformed and came to life!

I have to say the results of just one click already advanced the time of edit. Some of us may have even just stayed with this image, really it's pretty good for a preset! But, being the preset already took me this far I spent about another 5 minutes doing some personal adjustments to my taste all in Lightroom CC and here is the final edit.

So in under 10 minutes of editing this is what I got. Not bad...not bad at all. There is a wide variety of different all in one preset and brush presets as well. I will take more time to go a little deeper with the  Sleeklens product but already I can say for all you aspiring landscape photographers and advanced photographers alike looking for a little help with your editing or just to speed things up the Sleeklens product could really give you a boost in your image retouching.

Thank you very much to Jane and Sleeklens.com for the opportunity to use your product and I wish you all happy editing.
