At work
General location: Australia, South-East Queensland

The Setup:

Terry brought in his brand new baby daughter, two weeks old.

The camera & lens:

@ 77/20mm
Exposure: 1/15" @ f/28/10, ISO 400

Post processing:

Lightroom - The shot was soft and blurry already - not much to be done about that after the fact. Curves (lights +40, darks -45), exposure +0.2 stops, fill light +10 and recovery +70, all worked to boost contrast. This made her face fairly red, so I lowered the red saturation -30 (and orange -5). Finally, clarity +15 (not too much), and noise reduction (luminance +30, detail +100).

The wash-up:

The shot would have been better with the DSLR, though the silent iPhone was better for baby.
