Blue. Shot on Portra 160 NC with a Nikon F100. Drum scanned. One light off camera, bare bulb. F8 maybe? Only post was to try to make the tiny 100k file look 'ok' in the blue. (Still far from awesome in that respect and many others..)

Straightforward studio shot. Background was cleaned up to remove marks, and various dodging/burning stages were used.

Re: Photography Competition - Jan. 2008

With the recent questioning of what should be allowed in our contest, I looked around the internet at other contests to see if there were rules we could consider copying. I noted that there were similar questions in other forums, but I didn't find any rule explanations that I could steal borrow to use here. Today I visited DGrin.com and found this post and thought it appropriate to post here (which means that I agree with it.)

Posted Question at DGrin.com regarding their photography contest:

"I haven't seen any mention of acceptable photoshopping?
none - direct from camera only? (rather - I guess resizing only?)
cropping?
only photo-wide corrections? like more contrast without using layer masks?
specific corrections? like adjusting curves for only part of the photo?
collaging multiple photos into the final submission?


Answer:

It's not in the rules because there really shouldn't be an artificial limit placed on what the photographer wants to do. If a photographer goes over the edge into mostly illustration or something, then they better make it really good to make it in a photography contest.
You are the artist. You decide what to do! "

Re: Photography Competition - Jan. 2008

I was intrigued when I saw the theme for this months contest. Intrigued enough to make my first submission.

I wanted to make it blue so I set my white balance to "tungsten" and went outside.

Here is the rest of the info:

Lens: Canon EF-S 10-22mm

Exposure: 1/2000 at f/4.5
Exposure Bias Value: +0.33
Exposure mode: AV

Used photoshop to convert from RAW to JPEG.
Slight Curves adjustment
