Location:At home, Ipswich
General location: Australia, South-East Queensland
The Setup:This was a
The camera & lens:Camera: HP Photosmart C4180
- As a base, applied a preset called Bidong's Black and White. It is a preset with medium-high contrast.
- Presence: Recovery +100, black clipping +100, clarity +100
- Curves: highlights, lights and darks all +100, shadows -25
- Spot adjustment: there was a lot of crap on the platter, so I added a spot adjustment to everything that isn't lemon, exposure -4 stops.
The wash-up:I would have put the two halves closer together. I was also thinking of a tighter crop with some of each half cut off - for a less-is-more picture. If anyone wants to try, feel free!
