365 Project : Day 048

Today, there are some Indian dancers performing near our office building.  Just couldn’t resist to click 🙂  The colors of their outfits need to be captured.

As you can see, this is just a casual snap, available light during  its worst time at 1pm, so harsh lights everywhere.  I used spot metering to expose their skin tone properly.

Gear:  Canon 7D + Tamron 18-270mm VC
Settings: f8.0 | 1/500 | ISO 500 @270mm

Post process:

  • I did a 16:9 crop to give it like a wide screen  movie effect
  • Applied 2 textures and applied blending modes
  • A little bit of dodging to brighten up a few areas of the shadow
  • De-saturated some parts
