New Eric Kim Lightroom Presets

Tokyo, 2016
Tokyo, 2016

If you like the look of the photos from “Dark Skies Over Tokyo”, you can download the Lightroom presets for free:

  • Eric Kim Monochrome 1600
  • Eric Kim Color 1600

Use the presets on your RAW images to obtain a gritty, high-contrast look. I optimized them for my Ricoh GR II files, shot with both flash (and without flash). Use the presets when importing your photos into Lightroom, and then adjust the exposure afterwards:
