I am usually not a big user of presets or LUTs from other people because I just never take the time to see what they do. Recently, I was met with an ad on Facebook (yeah, I know) that intrigued me. It was for a collection of presets from Woodland Presets (not an affiliate) that just struck a chord with me. I jumped over to the site and ended up buying the complete collection — for the price, it just made sense. I did take a look at the setting as I tried each one and was intrigued by the use of color grading and the HSL filters in Lightroom.

Here are some examples of recent photos with presets applied.
