"Going Nowhere Fast"

2012-03-23 - "Going Nowhere Fast"2012-03-23 - "Going Nowhere Fast"

Category: Through the Lens

Contest Score: 23/27 - First place

 

Location: Cuyahoga Valley National Park (North of the yellow houses on Riverview Road)

 

Camera gear:

- Canon Digital Rebel XTi

- Lensbaby Composer with Double Glass Optic

- Cokin graduated neutral density filter (also handheld because I forgot the bracket)

- Handheld

 

Photo Specs:

Raw Image > Converted to Tiff file > Converted to Jpeg to for printing

Focal Length: 50mm

Aperture: ??

Shutter Speed: 1/1250

ISO: 800

 

Software used:

- Photoshop

- Noise reduction software

 

Print medium: Metallic paper

 

Lessons learned:

- That Metallic paper can really help some images!

- Don't forget bracket at home, because it makes everything more difficult!

- Lensbaby can give the perception of movement even when things aren't moving.  The train didn't even have an engine... it was just sitting there...

- Still a little heavy handed on the noise reduction software, but it didn't hurt this image too much.

Focal Length: 50mm then zoomed... not sure what the real focal length would be

Aperture: ??

Shutter Speed: 1/20

ISO: 800

 

Software used:

- Photoshop

- Noise reduction software

 

Print medium: Matte paper

 

Lessons learned:

- Once again did far too much with the noise reduction software.

- Cropped the image from a 2x3 ration to a 4x5... It helped in this instance...

- I should have sharpened the image, as the print ended up blurry.
