About the Photo

*Camera: Canon EOS Digital Rebel XS *Lens: EF 50mm ƒ/1.8 II *Shutter Speed: 1/15 Sec. *Aperture Value: ƒ/1.8 *ISO: 100 *Focal Length 50mm (80mm Equivalent in 35mm Film)

 

I shot this on a tripod using mirror lockup and a 2 Sec. selftimer. I opened the RAW file in CS4 and used a process of colour correcting I read in the magazine "Popular Photography". I find that the process made the image too green, this was shot durning the golden hour, which isn't enthasized here in the least. The process involved using a threshold adjustment layer and using it to find the brightest and darkest points in your image. You then deleted the layer, and used a levels adjustment layer to mark your white point and black point on the image, this automatically colour corrected the highlights and shadows and created a higher contrast. After the process I sharpened the image using the unsharpen mask.
