It's Round Robin time again! Our topic this time, "The Hand... Untouched!", comes to us from Brad of "We-Is." He explains it thus:
"Take a photo of your hand. Post it untouched, without any digital enhancements. Then, tell us about your settings (and shooting conditions) and what you would do to enhance... post capture. For those of you that like to run enhancements - post that too, as a before and after."
I started with four ordinary shots of my hands (front and back of each), taken with my Sony Cybershot in the reasonably well-lit kitchen, using flash and the macro setting. All I've done to these is reduce the size. Note that I'm wearing my Hopi ring, just to show that I've found it since last night.
Then I took two of the photos and played. This one has four edits: dark marker, twist, pinch and mosaic.
This one has had five edits: wind, solarization, neon edges, contour drawing and um, I forget.
It occurred to me belatedly that I could take a few shots in which the hand was not lit normally. So I turned off the flash (but left it on macro and auto), and did a few backlit shots. This is me reaching out to frame Hook's hook. I was shooting for my hand to look at bit like a hook, but really it's more of a flipper.
And for this one I simply held up my hand next to my desk lamp.
Now go see how handy other Robins are with a camera and some digits:
