Hipster I

Hipster I is a free Lightroom preset that takes your photos and gives them that extra edge and ambiance. This Hipster preset was inspired by rimmed glasses, beards, fixed-gear bikes, bow-ties, and avoiding the mainstream. You know a hipster when you see one and this filter helps you see one in the photos you take.

Try this preset on any photo that call for the Hipster vibe. You may use this to feature portraits, fashion, and this subculture’s bold lifestyle. Hipster I is ideal for both indoor and outdoor photography, as you will see in the examples below.

Enhances Textures and Details

A Showcase of Style. See how the Hipster I preset draws your attention to the subject. He seems more illuminated and you see more of his features. His tattoos appear inkier, darker.

To produce this effect, the preset applies a special radial filter that pumps contrast, sharpness, and clarity to where it matters.

Adds Stylish Tints on Highlights and Shadows

Hipster Ambiance. Compare the Before and After photos — this is the preset’s stunning effect in photos with indoor accent lighting. It takes advantage of the abundance of highlights and shadows.

Hipster I preset does not simply coat the image with a flat filter; to preserve depth and detail, it applies subtle tints directly into light and dark tones instead. It injects a warm-brown tone in the highlights and magenta in the shadows. You can easily notice the effect on the subject’s body, his shoes, and the light cast on the floor.

As a result, your photos will look like they were shot under a complex and sophisticated lighting setup. If this is the mood that you are going for, go ahead and apply this edgy filter on your next Instagram upload.

Adjusts Light and Dark Tones for a Bold Look

Bold Portraits. In addition to the mood-altering tints, the preset further enhances lighting with boosts in whites, blacks, highlights, and shadows.

See the preset’s improvements in the After photo: the man’s muted shirt appears whiter, along with the flowers behind him. On the other hand, blacks and shadows look intensified. This is not only an improvement in color, but also an enhancement of the hipster vibe. These minute tweaks blend so well with the radial filter mentioned in the previous example.

Improves Lighting and Mutes Tones

Stark Hues. All the effects come together in this photo above. There are dramatic blacks and highlights, plus stylish tints.

In addition to the improvements in lighting, the preset also fine-tunes colors for a dramatic look and feel. It brightens colors with a tweak in vibrance, and mutes some tones by desaturating them.

Focus your attention now on the plants behind the model. They appear mellowed, even darker. This is because the preset also creates a tone curve with custom red and green channels.

Adds a Polished Look to Your Photos

Classic Retro Polish. The look is not complete without vignetting. Because of this simple frame of dark hues, your photos will look less cluttered. The preset will also draw your attention to the subject every single time.
