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

The Setup:

Our passionfruit vine is dropping around one passionfruit per day, which is awesome. Lui made a passionfruit cake with passionfruit icing and it was awesome. Lui is also making a cookbook and I'm taking arty foody photographs.

The camera & lens:

Camera: Canon EOS 400D DIGITAL
Lens: Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 II @ 31/1mm
Filters: 0.42x fisheye filter (macro mode)
Exposure: 1/5" @ f/13/1, ISO 1600

Post processing:

Lightroom -

  1. Presence: Fill light +25
  2. Curves: lights +25, darks +30, shadows -15
  3. ACR lens correction: manual settings - chromatic aberration red/cyan +100 and blue/yellow +100. One thing that the fisheye filter introduces is a big load of chromatic abberation near edges. It's out of control. Lightroom was able to remove a lot of it, but there's still a fair bit left.

The wash-up:

I would have stood further away then cropped down. That would take care of the fuzzy edges.
