084/365 M084/365 M' boot

 

Day 84
My new blue boot.
Cool birthday present, don't you think!
I walked to work today, so I thought a boot picture would be appropriate. Didn't wear this boot, but that is alright.  Used my Bean hikers. 

Photo info: ISO 160, 27mm, f/8.0, 0.4s

Lessons learned: Poster board background on my bright sun porch. Worked well.  Needed to boost the exposure level to blow out the background.  Background is a little underexposed center top.  Probably wouldn't notice it if now one points it out.  Forget I said anything.

Hi Mike,
I set the boot on the edge of the posterboard, and then just let the poster board run up the wall behind the boot. It gives a nice seamless look since there is no real transition from back wall to floor. And this boot was heavy enough to keep the poster board put. Wouldn't work with a lighter object I suppose.
I installed the NiK collection last night, and used the High-key preset in Color Efex - worked really well, butter than the look I got here just hitting the exposure in LR. What a nice upgrade from Google! And free since I had the LR products already. No I can use them in PS too.

Hi Karl...cool use of a boot! How did you get the background all "white?" I know you used posterboard, but there is usually a seem somewhere.
