This was the last word for which I got ANY inspiration in this Hunt – although I did re-shoot another one after this one. Talk about uninspiring: I’m profoundly not a shoes person, I don’t own anything remotely interesting in this area, and this is not an area of interest. I vaguely thought about the hot shoe camera mount, but again, nothing came after that. And then I did remember that there IS a shoe token in Monopoly, and that I DO own a copy of Monopoly. So I setup a board, I even re-read the rules quickly to make sure that whatever I was putting on that board was remotely believable, and I got my shoe shot. This is the original picture, with only minor RAW development operations:
|Camera||Pentax K-1 II|
|Lens||smc PENTAX-D FA 50mm F2.8 Macro|
|Exposure time||1/80 s|
Veeery straightforward edit/development – I didn’t even crop anything (which is very rare) – I did add vignetting, though, because it made sense for me for the mood I wanted to give to the image.
