General location: Australia, South-East Queensland
The Setup:Just sitting around at Nana & Grandpa's place. I wanted to get a photo of Evelyn and Pallas the dog playing together, but both move too quickly for the poor iPhone camera to pick up.
The camera & lens:Camera: iPhone 4
Lens: iPhone 4 fixed lens (30mm equivalent) @ 77/20mm
Exposure: 1/15" @ f/28/10, ISO 1000
Lightroom - The original image was quite dark and very noisy. I pushed it quite a lot - fill light up to 100, blacks raised to compensate, exposure +0.60, and some mild curves adjustments. I chose 50% noise reduction, as any higher would have wiped out the expressions. The result borders on a halo-effect which I associate with overprocessing, which perhaps has its place. All that processing left Nana with a red face, so I lowered the temperature, tint and saturation to a more natural level. They actually have yellow incandescent lights, stained wood and red bricks, so the house is normally lit with very warm colours.
