Still testing the camera, this time with in-process faces. The brightly-colored one above is mixed media, mostly acrylic but some ink and paper, all on canvas board. It’s nearly complete. I’m pleased with how the colors turned out in the photo – they look almost the way I see them. Good result from the camera but when I shoot this piece for uploading to Redbubble some minor color edits may be needed. Maybe.
The face below has always fooled me. I never know when it’s finished so I never make adjustments to it on the canvas. Instead, I test them using Photoshop Elements to see if I like the changes. This test photo has been significantly edited because I just can’t resist doing that. The odd darkness across the left side of the face that looks like a very pointy mustache is a shadow – the main reason I used this canvas as a camera test. I needed to see how the camera handles extremes in light. Again, a good result.
However: when I took these pictures I was still overwhelmed by the many setting options on the camera and neglected to do the simplest task well. I didn’t check to see if I’d set it to manual focus or auto focus. Turns out it was on manual focus so everything’s a bit blurry. My fault entirely. The camera’s wonderful.
