Best Lightroom Presets for Portraits | Sasha Bell

I love taking Portrait photographs – Taking portraits is so much fun I’m always surprised how even when I go and take portraits in the very same place, it always looks completely different.  🙂

I get a lot of questions about my processing like…
  • What am I using at the moment?
  • What am I using right now?
  • What do I suggest using for still life?
  • What do I suggest using for portraits?

So, here’s a list of my favourites…

What Lightroom Presets I use…

With each season the light changes, which means the processing changes too.

So the processing products I use will change from time to time.

However, everything I use, and my sisters use, is available on this website –  after all, “we only sell, what we use”… so if something doesn’t work for us, we won’t release it!

Portrait Photography – Top 3 Lightroom Presets I use:


Has quickly become a HUGE favourite of mine. Originally for Photoshop (see Whipped Cream Photoshop Action – King Pack), since releasing it for Lightroom, I have been using it like crazy – on all sorts of photographs, from portraits, to landscape, to indoor shots too!
Here is another recent photograph, processed with the delicious Whipped Cream!

Day 123/365

Soft Afternoon Lightroom is out #1 bestselling preset if you look at the before and afters you will see how it adds a lovely glow to your photographs.
It’s beautiful for spring and summer photography. I usually go straight to it when I’m processing, because I know the results will be great!


Spring Girl


The name pretty much says it all. I love using it on my more “chilly” photographs it make the whole photograph light up when you use it.
The golden tones really adds warmth to my photographs.
Here is another recent photograph, processed with the very popular Golden Colouring!
