Photography Tips: Equine Presets (Free Download!)

I am so excited to share with you some freebies! This is the first set of commercial presets I have made, so to quote Adele, Go easy on me!

Presets for me are a time saver and a wonderful way to keep my style consistent. Especially when a client wants a certain look!

Here are 6 presets I’ve made especially for those Equine shots.

The Download file contains 6 XMP files ready to be imported into your library as well instructions.

Equine Golden Pack

Check out the below “Golden” filters to make your pictures look like they were shot in Golden Hour!

The first one focuses on bringing out orange and red tones, balancing harsh greens and flattening shadows.


Golden 2 focuses on creating a summer haze to give the impression of a warm lazy summer afternoon. In the photo below I used the subject mask to bring out the grey and white of this particular horse.


Golden 3 I made for the Bays. Bay horses have such depth in their colouration that can be brought out by a golden filter. Other edits made were simple brightening of the eyes.


Equine Winter Pack

The Winter pack focuses on dark heavy contrast and blue tones.

Winter 1 flattens out greys and vibrant colours to work on a low saturated high contrast finish

Winter 1

Winter 2 is a low contrast blue filter that works great on darker colours. The shadows are colder than the highlights, with the midtones also being on the cooler side.

Winter 3 adds a frosty atmosphere to the sky and backgrounds of the photo. I wanted to give the edges that little tinge of cold. The edit in this photo is in the eyes again.
