Fabulous Weekend

Fabulous Weekend free Lightroom preset presents a creative take on the cinematic film look. Think of it as a warm and high-contrast version of the popular orange and teal motif.

Its signature warmth is produced by a unique combination of light and color adjustments, not simply by a boost in the temperature slider. It impressively produces its warm effects using cool tones like green and blue. It is a striking approach to warming photographs.

The light and cheerful atmosphere that Fabulous Weekend creates makes it ideal for travel and vacation photos, or other light-hearted moments that call for a soft yet vibrant color treatment.

Use this filter on any photo with a lot of natural light to take advantage of its rich hues. It is perfect for outdoor shots. The warm-but-cool contrast will definitely catch the eye of any social media or Instagram follower.

Gives a Sunny Take on the Orange and Teal Motif

Sunny Orange and Teal. This twist on the classic orange and teal stylish look makes colors vibrant and entrancing. What makes the combination attractive is, again, the use of complementary hues.

This fabulous preset uses light shades of brown and blue: it adds the warm brown hues in the highlights, and the light blues in the shadows. To enhance this effect even further, it also increases the color temperature and amplifies exposure.

Adjusts Light and Dark Tones to Produce an Airy Look and Feel

Vibrant Matte. If the above warm-but-cool effect sounded paradoxical, this next one will, too. Fabulous Weekend preset gives vibrant yet matte tones. Just look at the bright yet airy After photo above. Stunning, isn’t it?

With it, you can have that tender matte look and still retain the lively vibrance. The color tints mentioned earlier have the alluring vivid hues covered. Only some saturation is adjusted; more on this in the next example.

As for the matte effect, the preset applies several more adjustments to light and dark tones. It softens highlights, lightens shadows, and brightens both black and white. To moderate the tones, contrast is also decreased.

Produces Light and Vivid Blues to Emphasize Warmer Elements

Clear Blues. This preset works best on outdoor photos with a lot of sky in the background. This serves as the base or backdrop of all the warmer elements in the photograph. For this purpose, the preset softens the blue tones with a decrease in luminance. Saturation is also increased to intensify the complementary tones.

Let us now examine the above After photo to see how Fabulous Weekend makes details pop. It increases both clarity and sharpening: we can see more of the woman’s hair and facial expression. Notice, too, how you can see more of the golden field now.

Heightens Contrasting Hues

High-Contrast. The preset has several more adjustments to color, generated from custom tone curves. It has particular settings in the RGB channels and highlights.

The last example above is a demonstration of Fabulous Weekend preset’s fine-tuning — you can also observe more clearly that it is inspired by the orange and teal style.

Yet it is different. In addition to the mentioned added warmth and texture, the preset applies more detailed tweaks to it. Some green color saturation is deceased to moderate hues, while warm color luminance is boosted to make the foreground pop more against the soft blue backdrop.
