General location: Australia, South-East Queensland
The Setup:Early in the mornings, the perspex walls of the payphone cubicle are fogged up. At any time of day, the petrol station has a very bright priceboard. Combine the two and here we are.
The camera & lens:Camera: Canon EOS 400D DIGITAL
Lens: Canon EF-S 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 USM IS @ 21mm
Filters: 0.42x fisheye filter (fisheye mode)
Exposure: 1/20" @ f/4.0, ISO 400 (-2 stops)
Lightroom 4 -
- Presence: Black clipping -15
- Curves: lights +30, darks +40, shadows -25
- ACR Lens Correction Profile for Sigma 10mm, distortion 100->167
The wash-up:This is what I was after, although in my mind the lights lit up the window a lot more.
