Night Music Time free Lightroom preset visually amplifies the musical atmosphere of onstage performances. This specializes in photos of night concerts with plenty of accent lighting.

Amplifies the Musical Atmosphere
Dramatic Tones. You do not have to lose subtle tones when taking pictures in dim settings. Night Music Time makes sure of that. Even dark areas can serve as accents because of this preset; the dark stage now has some warn magenta tones, while highlights — usually light streaks — take on a bluish hue. Note, too, the brownish shadows that give much more depth and definition.
Look at the above After photo and notice how much more captivating it has become. The guitarist is finally illuminated. You get to appreciate more of his instrument and bold look. With its heightened appeal, you can even use the photo now as an album cover.
This easily is one of our most artistic presets for night photography. You can also use it as an Instagram filter that will give your images a stylish and cohesive look.
Brightens with Adjustments Light and Tone
Brightened Performance. The preset applies several adjustments to light and tone. The combination of these fully directs the spotlight to the musician. You can get a soft bright stage with this preset, too.
Night Music Time adds more light to the image by slightly increasing exposure. It then boosts contrast to make sure that the tones remain crisp, not washed out. Then, for a balanced and textured look, it softens highlights and lightens shadows.
To further brighten the image, the preset adds brilliance to black and white areas. This goes well with the mentioned enhancements in tone. Or you can choose to have a black and white preset look altogether! For that, we recommend that you try our black and white preset for night photos.
Produces Deep and Vibrant Hues
Bold Brilliance. Night Music Time amplifies clarity and vibrance, as is needed by any musical performance. This deepens midtones and brightens photos.
On the other hand, it lowers the luminance of green and overall color saturation; this effect blends with subtle tints and the warm color temperature.
Draws Out Texture and Detail
Refined. This preset sharpens photos and brings out every visual detail onstage. With it, you get to appreciate the entire spectacle.
Finally, as its finishing touch, Night Music Time reduces noise and adds some slight vignetting. Notice how you can now see more of the textures, and how the vignette dramatically frames the performer.
