Marat Safin - «Gala»
I have been doing photography since 2006. Since then, my photographic equipment has changed several times: from Sony's soap dish to Nikon digital SLRs; photo processing changed: in color, in saturation, in contrast, in toning; the shooting process itself was changing: the vision of light, colors, intra-camera settings. And if I was asked today to process new photos, for example, as I did in 2013, 2014: contrasting, neutral, not saturated, gloomy, then I would not be able to do this. Rather, I would have been able to repeat the processing, but I don’t want to repeat it, since the tastes have changed. Now (when I have more free time) I decided to delve into old archives of my photos and found a lot of Raw files, with the processing parameters applied to them in ACR (Lightroom). This inspired me to put together the "Gala" preset pack .... I never liked (and do not like now) to process photographs, and therefore I sit in the editor over one picture for about a minute. And I often write down presets for myself, as this speeds up processing even more.
"Gala" is a set of 17 presets for Lightroom (including mobile version) and ACR (Adobe Camera Raw), recorded by me (old and new) from photographs from 2011 to 2020.
