Kindred Essential is our flagship preset and the entire reason Kindred exists.
If you use nothing else in your editing kit, Essential will be there for you! With a strong focus on skin tone elevation, essential excels in ideal lighting situations and can even do the heavy lifting in other lighting scenarios as well.
