In this post we share a set of 5 free Lightroom presets for landscape photography. In just a few clicks you can add beautiful split tone effects to your photos.
I must admit I am not the best photographer, but I do enjoy trying. From my local park landscapes to my morning coffee, a quick photograph is a fantastic creative burst.
But in my heart I know I'm a much better designer, which is probably why I prefer the post-production part of photography more than the actual photo taking.

I love opening up a photograph in either Photoshop or Lightroom and tweaking it until it's the next star of my Instagram profile. It never ceases to amaze me how professional a photo can look when the right filters and presets are applied, even if the photo itself is rather lame.
So today I was pleasantly surprised when I opened an email from LoadedLandscapes, a landscape photography blog, offering me a set of free presets for Lightroom which I could share with DCandies readers.
This free set of presets for Lightroom are ideal for adding split-tone effects to landscape photography. But what exactly is Split Toning?
Split toning is a technique of altering the colour of highlights and shadows in black and white photos. Split toning dates back to when our photos were manually processed in photography labs. It involves changing the white highlights of an image to one colour tone and the dark shadows to another. This use of two tones is why it is called “split toning”.
But gone are the days when you'd need to spend hours in a lab processing your image! With these free Lightroom presets, you can create beautiful split-tone style photos in just seconds.
