These are my entire set of black and white presets. It's 17 different looks, from crisp, clean and high-contrast to dark, moody and grainy and everything in between. Also, I've named them after a few of my favorite poets, with thought about how to pair them. I'm an avid poetry-reader and, as you may know if you follow me on Instagram, the intertwined nature of poetry and photography is an important part of my process and art. The poets include: Arthur Rimbaud, Rainer Maria Rilke, Charles Bukowski, Edgar Allan Poe, e e cummings, Emily Dickinson, Ezra Pound, Fernando Pessoa, Frank O'Hara, Langston Hughes, Sylvia Plath, W H Auden, Wallace Stevens, Robert Creeley, T S Eliot, William Carlos Williams and Walt Whitman. Each preset is inspired by their particular voice. The putting together of all of this has been a long-running passion project of mine and I've carefully crafted, organized and differentiated these presets to offer you the same creative process I go through, which is to try on different conceptual looks to an image or shoot. In this way, I’m only thinking about the mood and emotion of my work, rather than sweating intellectually over sliders and curves. I want your workflow to feel poetic, as mine does, and I hope these presets help. Best, Josh S. Rose
