The Cinema Stock 3 preset is a free Lightroom preset that turns colorful and bright images into vivid black and white. Unlike the Cinematic Stock 1 and 2 presets, this creates a retro monochrome aesthetic that can be used on all types of photography.
With Cinematic Stock 3 preset, the treatment is switched to black and white as seen in this portrait of a woman in a laundromat. All the bright regions from the Before photo are somehow muted for a dramatic look.
In this example, you can see how the Cinematic Stock 3 preset produces a custom tone curve with brighter blacks. This makes several dark regions soft, and shadows are much less harsh.
Black and white treatment of the Cinematic Stock 3 preset is perfect for almost all types of portrait, like this vintage car image. Even if the green colors of the trees turned shaded, the image still looks striking like those in the old movie scene.
In this running photo, notice how the preset increases sharpness along with the brightening of its tones. Notice how some blacks and whites are less intense.
You can absolutely use Cinema Stock 3 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.
