Location:At home, Ipswich
General location: Australia, South-East Queensland
The Setup:Pulling weeds out of the garden, and this weed had grown in gravel. It kept its shape well when pulled out so I threw it on the platter and scanned away.
Note to self: Scanner can do 1200 dpi, but Lightroom + 2gb of RAM has a hard time with it. I think this is mainly a RAM issue as the computer just sits there thrashing. When I scan at 600 dpi, there is no problem at all, and the resolution is still high enough.
The camera & lens:Camera: HP Photosmart C4160
(1200dpi. Scan took about half an hour to complete.)
Lightroom 4 -
- Basic: fill light +55, blacks +95, clarity +100
The wash-up:It's hard to find a good pose for roots. I should have started the scan much earlier, as they wilt quickly.
