Week 46, Day 319, March 13, 2010, Lollipops

My children are all here for the weekend, so it's been very busy.  Today was a very cold windy rainy day.  I chose to take today's photo inside.  I decided to work on the food theme for a third time.  This is my son and his girl friend.  They were eating lollipops, so I asked if I could take their photo.  They were great models, and allowed me to take several photos.

Lessons Learned:
  • I played with Photoshop to modify this photo. I first selected the lollipops by a color range.  Then I copied and pasted the lollipops into a new layer.  I then converted the main layer to black and white, and adjusted the brightness, and contrast. 
Photo details: Exposure time 1/50 sec, Aperture f/1.8, ISO 1600, Focal Length 50 mm, 35 mm equivalent focal length 82mm, Lens Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II, handheld.

Awesome shot! Interesting DoF, great conversion to B&W, and and excellent candidate for selective coloring.
