Location:The summit, Mount Coot-tha, Brisbane
General location: Australia, South-East Queensland
The Setup:After reading up a bit on street photography, I thought I'd give it a go. PHotographing people at a touristy lookout is 0% "street" but I'm counting it as practice.
The camera & lens:Camera: Canon EOS 400D DIGITAL
Exposure: 1/100" @ f/13/1, ISO 200
- 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.
- My lens and filter are super dirty, so there were lots of dust specks in the sky area. Used clone tool set to heal to remove them.
The wash-up:Happy with the composition. If you take the elements of the photograph in isolation, it doesn't make much sense (he is looking away from the city). I guess the interpretation depends whether you've been there, or to a place similar, and the layout of your own city.
