Location:

Laidley, Lockyer Valley, Qld
General location: Australia, South-East Queensland

The Setup:

We headed out to Laidley for the night, and blew some bubbles for Evelyn to chase around.

I had planned to shoot some star trails from the lookout on the ridge. It was the first cloudy night for two weeks. Will try again next time we head out there.

The camera & lens:

Camera: Canon EOS 400D DIGITAL
Lens: Sigma 30mm f/1.4 EX-DC @ 30mm
Exposure: 1/400" @ f/1.8, ISO 400

Post processing:

Lightroom -

  1. Auto apply a B&W preset I have called "PSKiss-FilmStyleBW-01". It auto applies curves (lights +60, darks -12, shadows -12), brightness +45, contrast +45, clarity +50 and increases the colour mixes in all channels, but mainly green and aqua.
  2. Crop right down, mainly to get rid of distracting elements.

The wash-up:

I wish I had the skills to clone out a lot of things in this photo. I tried, but failed - needs more ability. I was still able to make a photo in the end, so it's not all bad.
