Location:Riverlink Shopping Centre, Ipswich
General location: Australia, South-East Queensland
The Setup:I haven't been able to think of any good made-up stories for these last few photos. If you can think of one, do let me know!
This was at Riverlink Shopping Centre. The halls have been decked, and I thought this was a neat perspective of one of the larger hanging decorations.
The camera & lens:Camera: Canon EOS 400D DIGITAL
Exposure: 1/400" @ f/5/1, ISO 1600
- Auto apply a preset I have called "EFF Dragan 5". This preset provides a dark, desaturated look, geared towards red. Exposure +0.3 stops, vibrance -35, saturation -35, fill light +100, blacks +100. Curves: highlights +45, lights +45, darks -5, shadows -15. Colour mix: aqua -75 and blue -55. Sharpening +60 and noise reduction luminance +65.
- Crop to square
- I had tried a lot of other settings, but they just didn't feel right.
The wash-up:I was trying for symmetry but found it difficult. I don't know if perfect symmetry would have made it look better though.
