General location: Australia, South-East Queensland
The Setup:This is a laneway off Adelaide Street, and I've been shooting around the area.
I took some test shots here and over the next few days I'll come back and reshoot the ones that worked.
The camera & lens:Camera: Canon EOS 400D DIGITAL
Lens: Sigma 30mm f/1.4 EX-DC @ 30mm
Exposure: 1/1250" @ f/1.8, 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.
- Further curves: lights +90, darks -25, shadows -10
- Blacks +15
- Graduated filter with exposure +1 - see below
The wash-up:I'm chuffed, although I still don't feel comfortable shooting strangers.
