Sunshine Coast, Qld
General location: Australia, South-East Queensland

The Setup:

This is an abandoned factory on the Sunshine Coast. Went there with urbex pals Al, Mick, David and Cameron.

A conveyor belt, presumably a sorting machine. David's brake lights randomly turn on every now and again, and they did this while I was setting up the test shot. Test shot came out quite nicely, so I lit this with my other light saber (which still has a working red LED).

The camera & lens:

Camera: Canon EOS 650D
Lens: Canon EF-S 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 USM IS @ 15mm
Exposure: 120" @ f/3.5, ISO 400 (0/1)

Post processing:

Lightroom 5 -

  1. Colour temperature - tungsten
  2. Manual perspective correction: Rotate +1.0, distortion +10 (didn't do a full perspective correction as the result was quite flat-looking).
  3. Presence: Highlights -60, shadows +50, white clipping -100, clarity +30
  4. Noise reduction: Luminance +30, colour +100
