The Prohibition free Lightroom preset evokes a simpler time of speakeasies, long pearl necklaces, tiaras and The Great Gatsby. This preset dabbles on the more artistic side of spectrum while still respecting the image. It drops the color of a photo without resorting to a complete black and white, adds grain and provides a subtle vignette, drawing the eye to the center of the photo.

Drawn your attention to the original image on the left, despite period suggesting attire and accessories, the photo looks distinctly modern. In the after image to the right it's obvious that the photo takes on a new life with the subtle tones, vintage appearance and a more historical look.

You can see how this preset can be effectively used for portraits and group shots alike to bring a modern-looking image like this one back to the 1920s.

The vintage look from this preset makes it hard to imagine that this image was actually taken recently.

Prohibition is well suited for lighter photos as well. This flapper on the left looks good, but she looks great on the right where image appears like something you'd see in a history book.

Whether you're using this vintage near black and white preset for creating a dramatic look for fun or even using it professionally to do 1920s photo shoots and portraits, it will speed up your post processing time and create a beautiful end result. This almost black & white Lightroom preset works great on a variety of photos taken with various cameras and if necessary you can always tweak this preset specifically for your photo.

Travel back 100 years and give your photos a retro, roaring twenties style with the Prohibition free Lightroom preset.
