Kokoro - Wandering Through a Photographic Life

Backstage Kokoro

A "behind-the-scenes" look at selected images in my Kokoro project —
Content, photographic notes, EXIF data, creative process, miscellaneous commentary, and original digital captures. And now with additional audio comments about selected images!

From Kokoro #072 - Just Stuff

This image is the subject of one of our LensWork Creative Labs where I discuss how I created this color treatment. LensWork Creative Labs are a part of our membership-only website, but below is the link to the video so those of you who aren't members can view it. BTW, this is Lab #61, so there's lot's more available to members, if you are so inclined.

Also, note that this image was shot using ISO 3200, handheld with image stabilization at 1/25th of a second. Even when I zoom in to look at the details, the sensor noise is slight and perfectly acceptable. Amazing. True, I used some noise reduction (level 65) in Lightroom, but that isn't cheating, is it?

1/25 sec at f / 6.3, ISO 3200, Panasonic DMC-GM1, LUMIX G VARIO 12-32/F3.5-5.6, 12 mm
