Beak Lens is a free Lightroom preset designed to be used for pets and wildlife photography. It is tailored to bring out the natural tiny details of the animal’s fur, feathers, and other characteristics that make them unique and fascinating.
This preset balances out the warm and cool colors of your images that help emphasize natural tones and highlights, to create a new perspective on the remarkable details of an animal’s coating, feather, or fur, that we often fail to notice. It also produces a charming matte film effect. The examples below show how you can utilize this preset for your outdoor shots or wildlife photography, creating more buzz on your Instagram feed.
Effects of this Pet and Wildlife Preset
Balanced and Relaxed. The Beak Lens preset accentuates color vibrance and increases saturation on warm colors to achieve a clearer, bolder and brighter overall look on your images. In the example above, you can see that the elements in the After photo transform especially the background and the bird.
The bird’s elements augment as the orange tint on its belly and the gray and white colors of its feathers are now clearer. This now gives you a chance to see tiny details such as its feather curves on its wings and the black spots on its neck can now be seen.
Focusing on the background, the trees now show its lush green color bringing out different shades, adding depth to the image. The lake’s light blue color brings out this calm and serene ambiance complementing the image as a whole
Adds Texture and Highlight
Textured Fluff. The Beak Lens preset heightens highlights, contrasts and sharpens your photos to give you that spruced but textured look. The example above is perfect, as the dog’s fur in the After photo is now amplified giving it more character and fluff. The fur’s color is also now more evident and uplifted from the background adding more dimension to the photo. The plants also regain their lavish green color shaping and adding life to the overall image.
Creates Focus on Elements
Bright and Clear. The Beak Lens preset’s ability to brighten up your images is seen with this example above. Through enhancing warm and cool tints, some elements of the photo are now more distinct, such as the tree branch.
The branch now exhibits a more vibrant orange hue complimenting the natural blue color of the birds. The preset’s adjustment on the light settings gives the birds’ color details a sharper look and feel, creating a focal point on the two bluebirds.
Comfortable and Soft. This preset adjusts its color tones with the warm color spectrum, leaving you with a cozy soft vibe. The After photo above has an amplified orange tint that also helps accentuate the matte effect. The cat’s three-toned fur is now more evident as well as the marbled black and white details on its fur.
Clean and Detailed. Just like the previous examples, you can see Beak Lens’ ability to brighten and enhance color tones through this image. The background adjusts to a lighter tone, making it a perfect contrast to the owl’s natural colors.
The owl’s feather patterns are now more well defined, and this is achieved through adjustments with lighting, increasing both white and black hues.
Like all our presets, you can absolutely use Beak Lens preset as is, right out of the box. With any preset, you might need to make adjustments to accommodate your specific camera, settings, lighting, and subject matter.
