Key Lady

Key Lady

THE PHOTO:
A key store and it’s flourescently lit elderly owner, under an overbridge in Fortress Hill. This sort of shot I tried to capture more than once while in Hong Kong. I believe, and this is only my opinion, that photographic images of people are best shown in Black and White, and when composing these shots in the viewfinder, my mind’s eye was already stripping the color away.

LENS:
Tokina AF 12-24mm f/4.0 AT-X 124AF Pro DX

POSTPROCESSING:
Again, I left the distortion from the 12mm setting as is. Crop, Sharpen, 55mm Black and White (in Blue channel – this seemed to leave the flourescent lighting alone and stripped the detail from the right side of the shot which wasn’t interesting), 55mm Center Spot and 55mm Vignette.

    EXIF:

  • Aperture: ƒ/4
  • Camera: NIKON D2X
  • Taken: 17 January, 2006
  • Focal length: 12mm
  • ISO: 100
