The gerbera is one of my favourite flowers. Its soft petals and myriad colours make for fantastic photographic studies. During the past damp and cold weekend, I made a few images using my X-Pro1 in my studio (read: dining area!). The Fuji film simulations are superb and I used both Astia and Velvia coupled with spot metering to capture the images.
Processing has been done in Lightroom 5 and Alien Skin’s Exposure 5; I’ve also got a trial copy of Google’s Niksoft Collection and have been playing with various settings in Color Efex 4, Define, Sharpener and Define. Here are the results, which I hope you’ll enjoy.
