A pied currawong keeping a close eye on me whilst perched on one foot!? -——— Links for background information ... My thanks to the staff of St Marks National Theological Centre (St Marks NTC) for their friendliness and encouragement of photographing on the grounds of their Barton campus. -——— [ Location - Barton, Australian Capital Territory, Australia ] Photography notes ... The photograph was taken using the following hardware configuration ... (Year of manufacture indicated in braces where known.) - Hasselblad 501CM Body (Chrome) - S/N 10SH26953 (2002). - Hasselblad CFV-50c Digital Back for Hasselblad V mount camera. - Hasselblad Focusing Screen for the CFV-50c digital back, with focussing prism and crop markings. - Hasselblad 45 Degree Viewfinder PME-45 42297 (2001). - Hasselblad Carl Zeiss lens - Sonnar CF 250mm f/5.6 Superachromat lens (1987). - FotodioX B60 Lens Hood for Select Hasselblad Telephoto CF Lenses. I acquired the photograph (8272 x 6200 pixels) with an ISO of 400. I did not record the exposure time nor the aperture. Post-processing ... Finder - Removed the CF card from the camera digital back and placed it in a Lexar 25-in-1 USB card reader. Then used Finder on my MacBook Air to download the raw image file (3FR extension) from the card. Lightroom - Imported the 3FR image. Applied a standard metadata preset (20161110 Import 001) during the import process. Lightroom - Used the Map module to add the location details to the EXIF header. Lightroom - Made various lighting and color adjustments to the image. Lightroom - Applied a square crop (1:1 aspect ratio) to the image. Lightroom - Saved the Develop module settings as a preset. Lightroom - Output the image as a JPEG image using the “Maximum” quality option (3106 x 3106 pixels). PhotoSync - Copied the JPEG file to my iPad Mini for any final processing, review, enjoyment, and posting to social media. @MomentsForZen #MomentsForZen #MFZ #Hasselblad #501CM #CFV50c #Color #Bird #PiedCurrawong #StreperaGraculina #Feathers #Black #White #Grey #Beak #StMarks #StMarksNTC #StMarksNationalTheologicalCentre
