Free Lightroom Preset: Kawarau

Updated on

Ah, I love Fridays. It’s Australian Music T-Shirt Day, but it’s also Filter Friday. Another free Lightroom preset is unleashed onto the world!

This preset is called Kawarau and is perfect for Autumn. What makes it perfect for Autumn? Kawarau is all about making the orange and browns accentuated while adding some emphasis to the colder elements of the photo.

Autumn has a beautiful balance of colours and temperatures, and this free Lightroom preset makes the most of the full range while minimising any striking whites. The color pops nicely when used on brown trees, but also brings out some of the greens if trees are still very much alive after Summer. It’s pretty much a landscape Lightroom preset for those that love getting outdoors and taking photos.

This preset has a film or vintage vibe. It has effects to boost the clarity of your photography without making it look like you used an over-processed HDR Lightroom preset.

As with all my other free Lightroom presets for Adobe Lightroom, just drop your email in the box below and you can download it absolutely free. There’s also a tutorial on how to install Lightroom presets if you need it. And don’t forget that I release free presets for your photo editing enjoyment each week! A great photo is always just one click away.
