Week 9: Theme - Spirit

by Tracylynn Seeger March. 02, 2011 2285 views

For over 2000 years, the Holy Spirit has been symbolized by a dove. I got this pin at a Catholic conference about ten years ago. It's very small, about the size of a large thumbnail.

Kit & setup:
Nikon D3100 camera on a tripod
85mm macro lens
Lit by overhead incandescent lights in a dim room

Post editing (PSE8):
I played around a lot with this in Camera Raw, reducing the vibrance, and upping the blacks and exposure to get the color balance I wanted. I also softened it slightly by reducing the clarity.

EXIF Data:
Exposure 20 sec
Aperture f/40
Focal Length 85 mm
ISO Speed 400
