Currently experimenting with making new presets for the RICOH GR II Color JPEG images.

Why am I shooting and processing in JPEG?

I like the colors that are coming out of the JPEG of the Ricoh GR II in the ‘Positive Film’ JPEG preset. Not only that, but the images load a lot faster in Lightroom.

I cannot get the RAW images to look the way I want them (high saturation, with emphasis on red) through Lightroom. Perhaps I need to just keep experimenting. But currently liking the ‘look’ of highly-processed JPEG images, with the Lightroom presets. The two presets in the download ZIP file above which I like include:

  • ERIC KIM CHROMA v5 RED
  • ERIC KIM CHROMA v12 Best

How do I make these presets?

I just started with some ERIC KIM LIGHTROOM PRESETS and keep moving around the sliders, until I get a certain ‘look’ and aesthetic which I like.

It is all subjective.
