Bright Ideas - Day 263 of Project 365

06/05/09

 

I'm struggling for bright ideas at the moment! Plus I seem to have started to get a hand fetish, as this isn't the first time my hand has made it into my 365!

 

Today I discovered that at some point yesterday I must have inadvertently nudged the thermostat in the fridge... and turned it into a freezer... This morning I had to microwave the orange juice just to get some into a glass.

 

The brightness of the bulb was balanced by a bit of fill flash from the right. This helped bring out the text on the bulb and picked out more detail on my hand.

 

I originally planned to do this as a black and white... so I don’t know why I ended up leaving it in colour?

 

Lightroom: crop, push the black point to remove most of the background detail, use the brush tool to pick out my thumb more and remove some background bits, vignette, saturation +10, tweak brightness and contrast, save to JPG

 

Strobist: 580EX II into shoot through umbrella handheld to camera right, on TTL flash cord, FEC -2, camera metering to spot.
