Location:At home, Ipswich
General location: Australia, South-East Queensland
The Setup:To contrast with the previous photo of pests bothering the Cape Gooseberry, here is a photo of one of the fruit lanterns. The fruit inside is immature, having fallen from the plant too early. I've documented the setup of this photo below. The idea was to get a back-lit shot showing the detail of the lantern and a shadow of the fruit.
The camera & lens:Camera: Canon EOS 400D DIGITAL
Lens: Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 II @ 25mm
Filters: 0.42x fisheye filter (macro mode)
Exposure: 1/2" @ f/20, ISO 100 ((1-stop bracketing, this was the +1 stop exposure shot))
- Presence: fill light +15, clarity +100
- Curves: lights +20, darks -25 I originally processed this in B&W but I thought the warm colours were worth promoting.
The wash-up:Happy with this - it is exactly what I was after.
