With these presets for Adobe Lightroom, you can showcase your images in the best possible way. This bundle has been carefully crafted with 13 options to give you the aesthetic that street photography demands—perfect if you’re looking to add extra spark to your photographs.
If your Adobe InDesign skills are up to scratch, give this magazine template a try. With 20 pages and free fonts used, it’s a great way to tell the story that goes along with your street photography: combine your skills into one, neat photo-journalistic package!
If you want some modern and easy to read branding then the Modern Photography Logo is perfect, and understated enough that it won’t be an eyesore if you use it to watermark your photographs. It’s re-sizable, you can change the colour, and the font used is free.

- Street photography doesn’t have to take place on the street! Think about places like public transport, office spaces, or even at home.
