Review of the sleeklens Forever Thine Wedding Workflow

September 21, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

The fine folks at sleeklens contacted me about trying their Lightroom workflows. The set I tested was their Forever Thine Wedding Workflow. You can see these presets and many others at their website  https://sleeklens.com/ I will be posting photos from a wedding that I  processed with the workflow that I was sent and I grabbed a few photos from a previous wedding and did the same.

All of the photos start with a preset from the set and most have very little tweaking of the settings. 

There are things I would do to these photos but I wanted to show how the presets looked without much interference.

 

I was a bit hesitant as I am not a person who uses presets but after thinking about it for a while I thought why not. When I shoot a wedding sometimes I process over a thousand photos. Due to the amount of time that it takes I was thinking of drastically reducing the number of photos I would offer the client. I thought if I could just save a couple minutes per photo that would really add up. I could save up to a third of the time it takes to process a wedding. 

 

The problem was that I had never found a preset that I would use for a wedding. I just have not liked what I have seen and also figured I could build my own just as easy. 

Well, I have changed my mind. I did find some presets in their collection that I like and used for a starting place. They used some settings that I would never have thought of and I truly liked the outcome.  What I did was to find the preset that I thought fit the look of the wedding and processed a few photos with it, tweaking them a bit to fit my vision then created my own preset from that and off I went. In the end, this saved me a great deal of time and I was able to deliver the photos weeks before the date I had promised. This is definitely a plus.  

Even if the preset only saved me thirty seconds when processing a thousand photos this saves around eight hours. So considering this alone I am very happy with the sleeklens wedding workflows. 

With the Forever Thine Wedding Workflows, you get 112 presets and 23 brushes. I have not tried the brushes yet but I will and will add to this review.

I found the whole process from download to use to be very easy and intuitive. I highly recommend this sleeklens workflow, if the others are this good then it is definitely worth looking into and purchasing. I will be using this set for some time. 

Thanks to sleeklens for asking me to take part in their review process and sending me the workflows. It has been a great experience.
