Location:At home, Ipswich
General location: Australia, South-East Queensland
The Setup:Having been quoted $15k to fix some rotten wood in our verandah, we've decided to do part of it ourselves. The quote was a worst case quote, on the assumption that everything had to be replaced. Lui has taken the mallet to it and found 1 inch of rotten wood and otherwise perfect planks. Early days yet. I put the camera quite close to the action and the lens was sprayed with debris, but worth it.
The camera & lens:Camera: Canon EOS 400D DIGITAL
Lens: Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 II @ 18mm
Filters: 0.42x fisheye filter (fisheye mode)
Exposure: 1/800" @ f/9, ISO 400 ((7.6mm equiv))
- Lens correction profile for Sigma 8mm fisheye, with distortion toned down to +65.
- Square crop to get rid of the rounded edges
- Recovery +60, fill light +20, blacks +25, clarity +100
The wash-up:I would have aimed better so Lui was in the shot. It looks like I was deliberately hiding her, but really it wasn't on purpose at all.
