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
- 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
