Kimonos

Uploaded: August 05, 2005

Description

Same ladies as yesterday, but at a different angle. I upped the saturation, and replaced background, because it was distracting.

Handheld, 250/16, 28-80mm lens - using 80, Fuji Superia 200. Along with the saturation and replacement background; it was quick fixed, cropped and sharpened.

Did You Know?

BetterPhoto Websites: If you see an orange website link directly under the photographer's name, it's totally okay. It's not spam. The reason: BetterPhoto is the one that offers these personal photography websites. We are supporting our clients with those links.

Unavailable EXIF: If there is no other information but 'Unavailable' in the EXIF (meaning no EXIF data exists with the photo), the 'Unavailable' blurb is not displayed. If there is any info, it shows. Many photos have the EXIF stripped out when people modify the image and resave it, before uploading.


 

The following truth is one of the core philosophies of BetterPhoto:

I hear, I forget.
I see, I remember.
I do, I understand.

You learn by doing. Take your next online photography class.
