This Orange and Teal free lightroom preset does a great job at bringing out the orange and teal colors in photos. It increases contrast, decreases highlights and adds shadows and whites. Increasing clarity it mixes colors in a unique way to create a powerful take on the popular orange and teal motif.
You can see that this preset creates a striking look by boosting the orange and teal tones in this skyscraper photo. It creates a sort of surreal yet retro feeling to the landscape turning the concrete of the streets to a nice blue and the tops of the trees to a retro orange. The de-saturation of the warm tones in this city shot is clear.
This preset is always very useful for beach scenes especially when there is tropical blue water. This really helps highlight the unique tones within a photo like the one above. You can see in the after photo that the green trees look retro and washed out with the orange hue while the blue water is stunning. It looks like a tropical paradise.
As you can see in this photo the Orange and Teal Preset can also help with photos that don't have great lighting. You can see that the man in this image looks dark and muted but he appears bright and and stands out in the after photo. The clarity is increased and so is the quality of the image.
You can absolutely use Orange and Teal 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.
