I’ve been meaning to put these Lightroom 4 preset templates on here for a while, but just not had the time to get around to figuring out uploading them to the site!

I’ve included two templates, a standard one that I use as a basis for general B&W photography on the Fujifilm X-Series cameras and a second one that I find works well with portraits.

Both are designed to work best with the Fujifilm RAW files.  You can use them on JPEGs if you really want to, but that won’t make the best of them.

I’ve only included one example of each as I just don’t have the time to be producing a lot of side-by-side images.  The best thing for you to do is download them and try them out for yourself.

They are both quite high contrast presets as that is how I like my images to look. The standard version is a little flatter.  They won’t work perfectly out of the box with every image.  I use them as a starting point and adjust as I like to the specific image and I suggest you do the same.

Enjoy!  Send me your images using this preset and let me know what you think below in comments, or by e-mail.
