The Setup:Alan and Mick invited me to a drain in Brisbane's south... for light painting. Final shot for the night: Alan set up his four LED lights pointing at the grafitti. Mick set his camera for long exposure, and I sat to the right copying his steps and settings, but with a different angle and lens.
The camera & lens:Camera: Canon EOS 400D DIGITAL
Exposure: 120/1" @ f/71/10, ISO 800
Lightroom 4 -
- Presence: exposure +0.7 stops, highlights +20, shadows -100, clarity +50
- Noise reduction: luminance +50
- ACR lens correction for Sigma 8mm fisheye - this profile leads to completely straight lines, which is what I had in mind when taking the shot.
- Crop out the really distorted bits created by the last step.
The wash-up:This is exactly what I was going for.
