Workflow consisting of 7 modules and 60 presets for polar landscapes dominated by ice, glaciers and snow.

The presets are specially created for Arctic or Antarctic landscapes where ice and snow are the dominant theme and the color palette is largely reduced to cool tones of blue and aquamarine.

A glance at my landscape or fine art portfolio quickly reveals that glaciers, ice and snow play a central role in my photographic subjects. Whether in Iceland, Norway, Greenland or the distant Antarctic, I am absolutely fascinated by the surreal forms and the unique color palette of these landscapes.

This product combines all my experience in image editing with Adobe Lightroom, and the presets range from realistic looks to high-contrast black-and-white edits and dark and dramatic looks.

In addition, the presets work best for scenes with cloudy or overcast skies, because this is where the blue in the ice stands out best. But even on snowy or rainy days interesting results can be achieved. The example images should give an overview for which type of polar landscapes the product is best suited for. If you are unsure, please contact me with a link to your portfolio.

📷 Before & After Examples

These are not your average 'one-click presets'.

This product is designed as a structured workflow and consists of seven modules. This gives you the freedom to individually shape the final image with a selection of adjustment presets and develop a repeatable personal style in the process. A structured workflow frees you from the worries of where to start and what to do next.

How the presets work

This collection of Lightroom presets is created as a carefully thought-out workflow (similar to my other products), and the 60 presets are grouped into seven modules.

There are 12 basic/realistic looks to choose from, each with a slightly different focus, color scheme and atmosphere. In addition to the primarily realistic looks, there are also five black and white, three high-key and two dark and dramatic looks for a more artistic approach to image editing. Split toning is an integral part of all presets and I recommend experimenting with the different split toning presets and adjusting the strength using the saturation slider.
  1. Exposure (13 presets)
  2. Realistic & artistic looks (22 presets)
  3. Split toning (7 presets)
  4. Vignetting (6 presets)
  5. Grain (4 presets)
  6. Noise reduction (4 presets)
  7. Sharpening (4 presets)
📷 Before & After Examples

As a first step, the white balance should be checked for all images and adjusted manually if necessary, as the camera often misinterprets bright situations with lots of snow and ice. Also, increasing the exposure in your camera by one to two stops is a good way to avoid grayish results.

My go-to presets in Lightroom

Being fortunate enough to work in polar regions year round, the dark and dramatic and polar presets have especially brought a new dimension to my results and I find myself reaching for these presets first when starting my editing process. Thank you so much for these and well done!
