Location:Seven Hills Tafe, Brisbane
The Setup:If ever you've wanted or needed a reason to shoot raw, here is one. I arrived late to the location and didn't check my settings before starting to shoot. I thought the shot was a write-off, but with nothing to lose, I fiddled with sliders in Lightroom and ended up with this result.
The camera & lens:Camera: Canon EOS 400D DIGITAL
Exposure: 302/1" @ f/28/10, ISO 1600
Lightroom 4 -
- Presence: Exposure -4.7 stops, contrast +100, highlights -100, shadows +100, whites +50, blacks +100, clarity +100 (yes, most sliders to their maximums or minimums)
- Curves: Highlights +75, lights +100, darks +100
- Noise reduction: Luminance +50
- ACR lens correction for Sigma 30mm
The wash-up:Obviously I would have chosen ISO 100, and probably f/8 as well.
This would have been much better with my wide angle lens (I broke my 18-55 on Friday).
