Tribe Archipelago – Terrain – LR and ACR Presets + Profiles
The Earth’s Terrain, the face of our beloved Home. Here we find both sustenance and repose in the familiar, known beauty around us, and a fresh muse and catalyst for our craft fostered by the unfamiliar discoveries made in venturing our own frontiers. Her textures, colors, elevations–a frost covered taiga, spotted with white spruce trees; the scant, barren tundra bursting forth with brilliant wildflowers of Spring; the eternal motion and endless shaping of her oceans–compel us. We sense a responsibility to her to document, to preserve and to protect her revered Terrains and the people who inhabit them. These Lightroom presets and creative profiles are designed to complement the complex and majestic grace of our Earth as captured through your lens while respecting the unique and delicate skin tones and colors found in your portraiture. Each preset is accompanied by profiles to achieve a customized aesthetic.

This set is based on our own custom creative profiles and designed to work with RAW files. Set contains 6 Color & 2 BW Creative Profiles (which are activated by using the included Basic Develop presets). Plus 2 Adjustment Presets: Terrain Shadow Plus & Terrain Lens Correction.
What are Profiles?
Profiles themselves are not new to Lightroom or Camera Raw, but with the latest release of Lightroom and Adobe Camera Raw we can now “interact” with them by using the new Profile Browser! The Archipelago Terrain Presets and Profiles are designed so that they work in unison with one another, however the profiles can also be used independently or with other presets. (Just think of the combination possibilities!)
Creative Profiles now utilize 3D Look Up Tables or LUTs (a complex series of color grading) and apply an effect without changing the slider values, they work differently than presets in that a majority of the settings are embedded into the profiles themselves rather than relying on adjustment sliders. Think of them as a layer that can be applied on it’s own or “over top” of a preset, and controlled with “Amount” or intensity slider!
The Terrain Profiles have been made from scratch and tested on thousands of images from photographers all over the world. They are developed using tonal gradients designed to enhance your images while maintaining beautiful skin tone.*
(*Achieving great skin tone is also dependent upon proper lighting, exposure and white balance.)
