CINEMATIC BESPOKE

Rich, busy urban scenes meet faded indie looks in these Signature presets by Justin Lim. The Hong Kong-based portraits photographer wanted to create something subtle from the dramatic, soft from the unyielding, hazy from the vibrant, almost a paradox. To add complexity to your portraits and your lifestyle shots, here are the Cinematic Bespoke presets.

In his first Signature presets for Luminar, portrait photographer Justin Lim hones the beauty of strong contrasts, mixing beautifully the vibrant, busy, and sometimes hard vibes and scenes of the urban jungle with the subtle fadedness of indie looks.

“I think I tend to look for strong contrasting elements  something soft and tender set against the harsh backdrop of the city; or a relaxed coffee spot buried somewhere secret in the urban jungle,” explains Justin. With his Signature Luminar presets, he “wanted to make something that was dramatic yet also subtle and soft, to frame urban subjects delicately against the rich backgrounds of the big city.”

That amalgamation is just the sweet spot you want for portraitures in a city setting. But as he designed them to encompass a broad range of photography, they’re also incredible for other types of photographs as well.

“I feel the looks have also been very well applied in terms of portraits in nature. Lifestyle shots such as coffee, table settings, and hotel design also get immaculate moods with these presets.”

These are the Cinematic Bespoke presets. The preset pack includes 12 presets that you can download and use in Luminar.

Justin Lim

Artist & Photographer

Portrait photographer Justin Lim never sits still, which makes him perfectly at home in Hong Kong where he is based. His restlessness is also evident in his work, as he shoots portraiture and weddings as well as lifestyle, hotels, and even fashion. Born out of his desire for diversity in his professional and personal work, alongside his tendency to look for strong contrasts, it’s a choice he’s made from the beginning.

Justin’s need for diversity and branching out now extends to his first Signature Luminar presets, which, while ideal for urban portraiture, were designed to intentionally “encompass a broad range of photography skills.”
