Marcin Mentel recently shot the 14th International Circus Festival by Zalewski Circus. He had a glimpse at all the preparations and backstage before, during and after the actual performance. For sure Marcin has an exceptionally perceptive eye! He took so many great shots and beautifully captured the atmosphere of circus show.
Our Lightroom 4/5 + Color Efex Pro 4 workflow
Lightroom Presets + Color Efex Pro Recipes
Marcin could process the whole set quickly with so pleasing colors as he used our Delicious Recipes. It is a Lightroom + Color Efex Pro workflow solution which lets you process whole sets the easy and very fast way. It focuses on a cohesive processing, so if you like to switch styles between each photo, it definitely won’t match your needs. Cohesive processing lets a viewer get deeper into the action and concentrate on the story you have to tell.
Delicious Recipes Testimonial
(…) The aspects about Delicious Recipes post- processing I loved most:
Picture touch-up – New system divides the workflow into two stages (LR+CEP), which gives a fresh insight into the photo twice. This way, I have the chance to correct any possible previous mistakes that result from the fact that your eye gets used to the colors. Then, I can work on the best effect of the photograph.
Speed – The key thing – especially when you have to edit several thousand pictures a year, just like I do
The simplicity of developing – proper raw image developing according to the tips in the manual together with subsequent work with the set of Color Efex Pro effects allows me to bring out the details and improve tonal range of the picture. This way, I can get rich colors without spoiling their natural beauty at the same time. (…) [ Read a full testimonial on product page ]
Marcin sent us three images before applying the Delicious Recipes ( LR Preset + Color Efex Pro Recipe ).
The images have set exposure, white balance, cropping and local adjustments just like the final images, but they weren’t touched by the Delicious Recipes yet.
With Delicious Recipes you can easily fine-tune the images to your own taste – the warmth, contrast and shadows detail are fully in you control.
Before / After: hold your mouse over an image to see the photo before applying the Delicious Recipes.
