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

The Setup:

We wanted a poncho towel for Evelyn (maybe because Amelia has one!) but the ones available in stores were too expensive or flimsy quality. Lui decided to make her own, and after no small amount of effort, here it is!

Instructions for how to make this poncho towel are at sandy toes and popsicles blog. This is pinned on Pinterest as well.

The camera & lens:

Camera: Canon EOS 400D DIGITAL
Lens: Sigma 30mm f/1.4 EX-DC @ 30mm
Exposure: 1/25" @ f/2.8, ISO 1600

Post processing:

Lightroom -

    The photo I chose was the best posed, but was out of focus. You can't magic an out-of-focus photo into an in-focus photo, but you can do some things to distract.
  1. Curves: lights +20, darks -35, shadows -40
  2. Sharpening: amount 45, radius 1.8, detail 50, masking 100
  3. Noise reduction: luminance +30, detail +100

The wash-up:

I suppose I would have had the photo in focus, all things considered.
