Two kiwi fruit slices, scanned in high resolution, high contrast, black and white.


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

The Setup:

I sliced up a kiwi fruit and placed some pieces of it on the scanner.

The camera & lens:

Camera: HP Photosmart C4180
Lens: N/A

Post processing:

Photoshop Elements 6 (Mac) -

  1. Moved the two slices closer to eachother (easy to do due to no background) (didn't worry about being careful with how much area to select for the move, since the plan was to completely white-out the background)
Lightroom 4 -
  1. Presence: Shadows +10, white clipping +50, clarity +25
  2. Curves: Highlights +100, lights +60, darks +15, shadows +10
  3. Auto B&W mix conversion

The wash-up:

I am terrible at cutting kiwis, although this one was a bit over ripe, making it hard to cut it nicely.
