Blogged in The Woodwork: All hail the entry kit!
Nikon D5000 kit
South of Market, San Francisco, California
Olympus E-P2, M.ZUIKO Digital ED 14-42mm 1:3.5-5.6
Adobe Camera Raw, nik Sharpener (raw presharpen, output sharpen), Topaz DeNoise 3, nik Color Efex Pro 3 (darken/lighten center, bleach bypass), Aperture (vignette), BorderFX
1/60sec @ ƒ3.5, iso 1250, 14mm (28mm)
Editing notes: The background was clutterred so I did some heavy vignetting to draw focus. Since the box was low key, I thought a bleach bypass would be complimentary to those colors. I should have used film grain instead of output sharpening, since the interaction between nik Sharpener and Topaz DeNoise is strange.
