All images by Jamie MacDonald
Very few things in the world help to usher in mankind’s finest hour like good black and white presets.
Okay, we’re joking–good pizza helps too. But in all seriousness, photographer Jamie MacDonald released a number of presets recently for Adobe Lightroom users for a mere $5. You get 10 presets and they’re all finely tuned to give off beautiful black and white looks in the images. He called them the Monochromatic Magic presets; and they really are quite magical. No, they don’t look like the stuff that Hipstagram will give you. Instead, they focus more on the look of various alternative film processes done with black and white film.
Jamie has been working on these for a while and we kind of got a hint of them from his photos of clouds.
