For good luck

Rain rain rain. Chilly and wet February days in Northern California are good for staying inside and keeping dry. For indoor fun, I decided to create a little scene on the dining room table and take some shots. We have a bunch of these ceramic carp (symbols of “good luck”) around the house. I chose the two pinkish ones that live on our fireplace mantel for my little scene.

Pink ceramic carp

Lens: Canon EF 70-300mm at 95mm. 1/5 sec, f/4.5, ISO 400. Natural lighting from the windows, white balance on “cloudy”. To get the moody look, I converted the image to black and white in Nik Silver Efex then “overlayed” the Nik layer with the original image at 100%.
