365 Project : Day 212

I wanted this set to look ‘cinematic’; I love watching movies and everytime I go to the theaters, I always look at the posters and try to deconstruct the lighting used and the post processing applied. This is my beginner’s skills take on cinematic 🙂

Gears: Canon 7D + Sigma 17-50mm f2.8 OS HSM
Settings: f5.6 | 1/250 | ISO 160
Strobist: 580exii + half closed umbrella on camera top right @ 1/4 power
Trigger: 7D’s  built in transmitter

Post process

  • Contrast, fill light, blacks and exposure adjusted in Adobe Camera Raw
  • Clean up, curves and levels adjustments in PS
  • Dodging and burning
  • Hue and Saturation adjustments
  • Color balance
  • Added noise to get more texture

Weekend is on its way =)  Cheers!
