This red Lightroom preset works well with a variety of photos. It takes a stylized approach to imagery and accentuates landscapes and cityscapes. Not only does it add a cherry-red hue but it drops the other colors creating what is essentially a black, white, and red photograph. Think of it as a monochromatic filter that ornately coats images with a rich layer of red.
Transforms Images with Stunning Red Tones
Dramatic Red Tones. In the photo above, Red Dawn I transforms this yellow and blue landscape into a rose-toned scene. It’s surreal and artistic without being overbearing. The luminosity of the image is retained only the colors are red-shifted. It is a monochromatic image that keeps the photo’s richness with toned shadows and crisp highlights. Notice how vivid yet nuanced the reds are, especially as it defines the landscape in the After photo.
Unlike other stylistic filters that merely apply a one-dimensional coat to an image, Red Dawn I finely distributes these rose red hues and considers depth and detail. You will see more of this in the examples below.
Gives a Surreal Feel to Photos
Boldly Surreal. As shown above, the blue and yellow image is transformed into a red-intensive scene. However, it isn’t too strong and is nearly a scarlet filter that elicits a surreal, sanguine, and captivating feel to photographs. It’s a red filter for your images that will change things up and make a photo stand out.
If you want a head-turner image on your Instagram feed, Red Dawn I is, without a doubt, the preset to go for. It is an appealing yet sophisticated look that draws your attention to its dramatic atmospheric feel.
Adds a Sci-Fi Look and Feel
Futuristic. The photo above highlights the versatility of the Red Dawn I free Lightroom preset, specifically as a night photography preset. Red Dawn I transforms a cityscape into a futuristic robot-vision depiction. In a variety of films, robots are often depicted as viewing everything with a red filter like Red Dawn I. This creates a futuristic and dystopian feel.
It will add an artistic flair to one or even a series of photos.
