At home
General location: Australia, Central and Northern Queensland

The Setup:

I set up the tripod next to Bacardi's dinner table and attached the cable release. I gave Bacardi the dinner with one hand and snapped the shutter with the other.

The camera & lens:

Camera: Canon EOS 400D DIGITAL
Lens: Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 II @ 28/1mm
Filters: 0.42x fisheye filter (fisheye mode)
Exposure: 1/25" @ f/4/1, ISO 1600

Post processing:

Lightroom - Curves - lights +60, darks +40, shadows -35 - standard high contrast boost. Other than that, just a noise reduction (luminance +50). I tried some other adjustments (like a graduated filter to even out the light), but they didn't really add anything.

The wash-up:

This room isn't as well-lit as I thought. I took some later shots using my flouro strip light, but this one was a nicer composition.
