At home, Ipswich
General location: Australia, South-East Queensland

The Setup:

Lui made some cookies for James' last day at work. These are 1st Gen iPod Nanos.

The camera & lens:

Camera: Canon EOS 400D DIGITAL
@ 30/1mm
Exposure: 1/100" @ f/28/10, ISO 1600

Post processing:

Lightroom -

  1. Noise reduction: luminance +50
  2. Lens profile correction: manual - vertical +15 - to try to correct the bad top-down perspective
  3. Curves: lights +20, darks -5
  4. Presence: clarity +100

The wash-up:

The top down perspective is a big unnatural. I tried to correct somewhat in post, but it stretched out the bottom cookies a bit too much.
