|This is my backup shot. My initial ideas did not saw the light of day. One of them involved the number 5138008 :-) Maybe next time.
Having said that, i like this shot, but i don't have any high hopes, scorewise.
- Lit by a single flash, at 2 o'clock, bounced from the ceiling. An omnibounce type modifier provides some fill to the side and details around the buttons.
- Overexposed for high key.
- Played with the aperture from f/2 to f8, to get the optimal DoF. Compensated the exposure with ISO and flash power. The idea was to have only the numbers in focus. The 1 and the 2 are slightly off, but just slightly.
- Little bit of post processing. Noise removal, selective clarity, HSL tweaking...
- I tried to shoot it with a lit display but gave up on the idea. First, I wasn't sure how the orange colour will work with the rest. Second, getting the exposure on the back/side lit properly is tricky. ISO was raising to high and the shutter speed was dropping too low.
I should have re-shot it, to fix the (camera) right edge of the phone, but didn't have the time or the will. It's actually the edge of the battery cover.
