Known by thousands of photographers world wide, Kindred Presets takes the guess work out of editing. The beating heart behind our company is our community and every decision we make is with them in mind. How can we serve the people who make THIS possible in the best way? What can we do to make their lives easier and add value to their businesses? 

Enter presets who take you past the starting line. Every Kindred Preset involves adjustments in every panel of the Develop module of Lightroom, with very specific purposes. We make big presets, for big results. Skin tones, of every color, are our number one priority. Our secret balance of adjustments for luminescent skin are built in to every preset we offer!
Because of this, our photographers find it much easier to edit with cohesion and build brands that are reliable and trustworthy.

about kindred

Oh! Did we mention our presets come with a family?!

 The Kindred community is unlike any other photography group in the world. "I found my best friend in the Kindred group" is not an uncommon phrase in our world, and we are proud to facilitate a safe space to learn, encourage and grow in an industry that is known in many ways, to be the opposite of "a safe space." When we say "the Kindred group is the brightest spot on the internet," we aren't being crazy, we are just being honest!

"Kindred has literally changed my editing style for the better! Before I purchased the Kindred Pack, I was inconsistent in my edits and my skin tones were way off. With just one-click - BOOM! They looked GORGEOUS. Skin tones were perfection, whites were brilliantly white and blacks were spot on."

- Kendrick Terrell

""I can honestly say I've been through them all. Preset after preset. Not one has spoken to me quite like Kindred. The skin tones, the whites, the colors…these presets are LIFE! Not muddy or dull, but vibrant and clean. In a very saturated industry, I feel that I am FINALLY standing out, finally booking my ideal client, and FINALLY producing work that I am proud of." 

- Laurenda Bennett

"Using Kindred Presets has given me exactly what I was looking for with my style, but they also make me feel like I can take on the world!"

- Stacey Montero

"Between the presets which have given me MONTHS of my life back at this point, to the cohesive and stunning brand it affords me with every edit, Kindred just keeps giving. You add in the amazing community that comes along with these tools and it feels like I purchased a family who gets me, gets my struggles, celebrates my hard work and understands why I am up so late all the time! I am a seasoned photographer and one thing always rings true to me, I am worth the risk and creativity takes courage. Kindred keeps me grounded in both."

- Ryan Jordan

"The balance of beautiful colors and contrast is what first drew me to Kindred. Skin tones seem to just glow like sunshine, the colors make my heart sing and I'm always confident that my images will look how I imagined. These presets have genuinely cut down hours of work and I'm always excited to see what kind of magic they'll add to my photos."

- Michelle Santiago

" I would be selling Kindred short if I just categorized it as an editing tool and left it at that. Using Kindred and watching how it worked, in combination with being part of the Facebook community, also improved my shooting abilities tenfold. I learned how to use light the way I wanted and select locations that achieved the images of my dreams. Because of a PRESET. Thanks to Kindred, the future is bright!"
