A lot of my shoot inspiration comes from music, this set was no exception with influences from Father John Misty's album Pure Comedy as well as the tradition of baptism in many religious circles such as the one I grew up in.
I created this muted edit in Photoshop using adjustment layers and thought a Lightroom preset equivalent might be nice for you all.

How to best use this preset
1.) Apply the preset to your RAW image.
2.) Adjust the overall contrast, blacks, and whites to best fit your image.
3.) Using the brush tool paint over your subjects face, hair and body (or whatever you want the main focus to be on) then adjust the exposure and blacks up a little, while lowering the shadows a little. Now adjust the whites and highlights to your liking.
4.) Here's my result!
