Location:At home, kitchen
General location: Australia, South-East Queensland
The Setup:I bought this piece of broccoli with the intention of photographing it, then eating it. I put both off for a few days, which meant the latter wasn't going to be much good. I set up the broccoli on our kitchen table in front of the purple wall (to contrast with the green vegetable), propped up by an oven mit. I had the camera sitting on the table, propped up with one of Evelyn's bibs - to change the angle ever-so-slightly.
The camera & lens:Camera: Canon EOS 400D DIGITAL
Lens: Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 II @ 27mm
Filters: 0.42x fisheye filter (macro mode)
Exposure: 1" @ f/20, ISO 1600
Lightroom - I raised almost every level in sight. I upped the blacks, fill light and clarity, to add punch and definition to the ... let's call them nodules. I also set a severe curve, highlights to +100, darks down to -100.
