At home, Ipswich
General location: Australia, South-East Queensland

The Setup:

This is the tap in our laundry. I experimented with some more IR photographs today but they didn't really turn out very well (much to learn) so this was a go-to photo. I accidentally left the custom white balance set for IR photos (but once I saw the effect, left it on).

The camera & lens:

Camera: Canon EOS 400D DIGITAL
@ 27/1mm
Filters: 0.42x fisheye filter (macro mode)
Exposure: 4/10" @ f/71/10, ISO 1600

Post processing:

Lightroom -

  1. Curves: lights +35, darks -25
  2. Fill light +15, clarity +100
  3. Noise reduction: luminance +50

The wash-up:

I wish I had brushed that hair off the front before shooting! It's not very noticeable in person but sticks out like a sore knee in the photo!
