Location:Kirra Beach, Gold Coast
General location: Australia, South-East Queensland
The Setup:I took a day in lieu and took Evelyn on a trip to the beach. I had plans to get a photo of her little feet in the sand, which proved to be quite a moving target.
The camera & lens:Camera: Canon EOS 400D DIGITAL
Lens: Sigma 30mm f/1.4 EX-DC @ 30mm
Exposure: 1/1250" @ f/2.8, ISO 100
Lightroom - I converted to black and white and let Lightroom choose the colour mix. I set a strong curve that darkened shadows between each grain of sand (lights +35, darks -15, shadows -100), then set sharpening +50 (up from the default of +25) and clarity (+100). Final adjustments were blacks (+10) and recovery (+100).
