Nope, I still haven’t recovered from my very long weekend, and I still haven’t gone through all my photos, but I’d like to share one with you.
Meet Sgt. Magleo, one of several military men at the 12th Philippine International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta. He was sitting in one of four APCs sent over by the Philippine Army, and he was kind enough to pose for a photo.
You can see the image on Flickr by clicking on the thumbnail above, or you can see the large (600px by 900px) version and some more info on the image by following the jump.
Processing involved cropping & rotating, non-destructive dodging & burning, curves, color-correction, spot desaturation, some sharpening, and a subtle version of Parc Cruz’s Contact Lens Workflow.
Lighting involved two lights: a 430EX triggered by my Cactus PT-04 RF Trigger inside the vehicle, and the hot, burning sun outside. I had to burn the door a little in post since my synch speed was very limited (1/160s tops, 1/125s to be safe), but otherwise I think I balanced the lights nicely. By nicely, I mean the door didn’t end up blown out.
What do you think?
