Yesterday I had a lovely day and was practising with lighting and focusing for Kim Klassen's Be Still-Fifty Two course that I am taking. I also found these creamers at our local hospice thrift store this week. The vase was a gift from my Mom in the 1970s, I still treasure it. The tea bag holder was part of a gift from my daughter last year. I used my 50mm 1.8 for these photos... all cropped 4x5. I don't normally post all details, but for this one I thought I would share settings and location, etc.
Settings: F1.8, ISO 800, SS 1/400... taken in front of a north window around 11:30 a.m. when the sun was on the other side of the house... the light is brighter first thing in the morning when the sun shines on our neighbour's white house and reflects back through our window... for this photo I applied the Pretty Preset Fine Art Film in LR5... then in PS Elements 12 I made a duplicate layer with Soft Light at 18%, added kk_simple 1 with Colour Burn at 35%, duplicated that layer with Soft Light at 28%.
Settings: F1.8, ISO 800, SS 1/400... also taken in front of the north window at the same time... I used the Preset kk_oldendays in LR5 and in PS Elements 12 added kk_waterfront with Hard Light at 38%, duplicated the layer with Soft Light at 48%.
Settings: F1.8, ISO 250, SS 1/6400... taken in the evening around 7:00 p.m. on our patio... the sun was at a 90 degree angle... kk_melancholy 2 in LR5... then in PS Elements 12... kk_elevate with Hard Light at 18%.
Settings: F1.8, ISO 250, SS 1/8000... taken at the same time on the patio... the sun was at a 90 degree angle. I did a quick clean in LR5, added Pretty Presets: Grapes, Hazy Matte, Desaturate Colours and Cool Tones. In PS Elements, I made a duplicate layer with Soft Light at 46% and added kk_cherishscript with Multiply at 68%, duplicate layer with Soft Light at 70%.
