Queens Park, Ipswich
General location: Australia, South-East Queensland

The Setup:

This was at Evelyn's birthday party. I was shooting low and into the sun, with a partial Evelyn eclipse.

The camera & lens:

Camera: Canon EOS 400D DIGITAL
Lens: Canon EF-S 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 USM IS @ 15mm
Exposure: 1/400" @ f/13, ISO 400 (0/3)

Post processing:

Lightroom -

  1. Crop (Sorry James)
  2. Convert to B&W
  3. Exposure +0.8 stops, highlights -65, shadows -100, whites -50, blacks -55, clarity +55 (all intended to reduce contrast/harsh shadows on Evelyn and to un-blow out the background).
  4. Red mix +60 - to lighten all reds in the picture (also to reduce contrast)
