These dark Lightroom presets are similar to the moody Lightroom preset pack, but are more suited to reducing the exposure on images, or in creating a darkened, dystopian version of your photo.
Learn how to install presets using this article, and download free photos if you want some additional images to use the presets on. See the main page for the full range of Lightroom presets for free download.
Note: You can use these dark presets in any way you like, but you cannot re-sell or re-package them, and please link back to lapseoftheshutter.com with your finished images so that I can take a look!
