Christmas Balls

I haven’t done a shoot in weeks, and since it’s Christmas Day, I decided to choose an appropriate subject.

I put these Christmas deco balls on top of a bedroom dresser, with overcast window light.  The basic editing for contrast and sharpening was done in Lightroom, and the rest in NIK Color Efex Pro 4.  I used the EOS 6D with a EF 35mm f/2 IS.  Since the exposure was several seconds, I just sat the camera on the dresser in front of the balls so it would stay still.

For this image, I edited in NIK Silver Efex Pro 2 and used the local adjustments to restore “selective color”.  The effect is cool because it does restore color, but not the same way the original photo looks.

In this shot, I used Color Efex Pro 4 to add a faded old photo effect.  I dropped a bulb but decided to make the best of it.
