free Holga Lightroom presets

You’ve probably already heard about what Holga is but if you haven’t, I’ll give you a quick brief.
Holga is the name of a Chinese camera that has a history from 1981. It’s a medium format 120 film toy camera known for its low-fidelity aesthetic. Nowadays you can find apps for your mobile phone that tries to copy the same look. It’s been so popular in the last few years that people even buy old toy cameras like this one, just to get the natural old look on film.

The first preset titled: x=polaroid+yellow, brings in the yellow color cast we always cherished along with the heavily blown out highlights that 669 just loved to give us – willing or not.

You’ll see this style a lot in wedding and engagement photos but it works for just about any outdoor photo with lots of colors. Its got that ultra saturated bright look with lots of vignetting to it.

Lightroom Presets – Sin City Look

The main idea behind the Sin City look is pretty much a desaturated high contrast photo with some red saturation left in. The preset is mostly a desaturating effect. But it also leaves certain colors saturated (reds and oranges). The idea behind this is that you’ve got to have something in your photo that has those colors in it.
