General location: Australia, South-East Queensland
The Setup:This is a pretty 19th century monument near riverside, with some neat gothic (I think) writing.
I've been shooting with my camera in B&W mode. It's still saving as RAW, and when importing to Lightroom, they still come in in colour (on purpose), but it means I can immediately see how it's going to look in B&W when I'm out shooting.
The camera & lens:Camera: Canon EOS 400D DIGITAL
Exposure: 1/125" @ f/28/10, ISO 100
- Auto apply a B&W preset I have called "PSKiss-FilmStyleBW-01". It auto applies curves (lights +60, darks -12, shadows -12), brightness +45, contrast +45, clarity +50 and increases the colour mixes in all channels, but mainly green and aqua.
- Reduced exposure by 1 stop and increased lights curve to 80
- Applied the Lightroom lens correction for the Sigma lens
The wash-up:This looked more interesting in real life than it turned out to be on screen. Oh well.
