ONE FOUR CHALLENGE – Jan15-WK-1
My contribution for
During the Christmas break I purchased and began to
the instruction book for my camera.
Marvellous what instruction books contain!
I discovered by pushing a button or two I could
severely affect the look of my photo…
no computer software required.
I decided our Christmas tree would make the ideal subject.
I turned my back one day and the next thing I knew it was
back in its box packed away until December.
So this urn is going to be this month’s subject.
All these photos are taken with a
Nikon D7100 shooting in Effects Mode and
letting the camera do the work. This shot is in ‘Hi Key’ Mode.
The instruction book states that
images produced in this mode are filled with light tones,
usually no black or deep tones at all.
Practically it is not clear if this mode does anything
more than overexpose an image.
Although the urn is silver there are some
deeper shadows, blacks, whatever, than appear in this image.
I’ve just checked! 🙂
As stated it does appear to over expose an image,
although my reason for checking was simply that
I thought the image was nearly identical to the real deal.
So Nikon software is going to be software of choice for this month.
Apart from focal length, all the technical stuff is pre-set by the camera:
- Camera: Nikon D7100
- Lens: AF-S DX VR Zoom-Nikkor 18-105
- Focal Length: 70 mm
- Exposure time: 1/30
- F Stop: 5.3
- ISO: 1100
Hope you enjoy!
