This is for the get-pushed-43 challenge from @nicoleterheide: "for this challenge I want you to keep it closer to home. Find something in your house that you use a lot and make an interesting photo of that. For inspiration take a look at the mundane challenges." I spent a few days thinking about it and came up with this.
This is my toothbrush, much used and in my house. It is lit from the side by a torch.
The camera & lens:Camera: Canon EOS 650D
Lens: Canon EF-S 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 USM IS @ 15mm
Exposure: 4/10" @ f/16, ISO 200 (Av, manual ISO, manual focus)
Lightroom 4 -
- Shadows -30, white clipping -100, black clipping +10, clarity +60
- Spot adjustment over the dark areas: -8 stops (hasn't quite wiped out all of the detail, but close enough!)
