Location:At home, Ipswich
General location: Australia, South-East Queensland
The Setup:Lui made these cookies as gifts for Christmas. They are currently sitting under the air conditioner so they don't melt. Dappled light courtesy of new verandah.
The camera & lens:Camera: Canon EOS 650D
Lens: Sigma 30mm f/1.4 EX-DC @ 30mm
Exposure: 1/50" @ f/2, ISO 125 (0/1)
Lightroom 5 -
- Auto perspective correction
- Profile correction for Sigma 30mm
- Manual perspective correction - horizontal -2 (using the grid helped)
- Presence: Highlights -50, shadows +50, white clipping +65, black clipping -25, clarity +15
- Since the dappled light + centre metering resulting in slight blowouts at top right and bottom left corners, I used two graduated filters in those spots with highlights -50.
