I had taken several photos before Cole and Chloe came over and was heading up to process the images when I noticed the light on JD’s sewing machine. I really like the way the lighting was falling on the various parts of the scene; so, out came the tripod and down went the camera on it. I immediately decided that I would process the photo as a black and white and wanted the overall tone of the image to be low-key photograph.
I think that the overall treatment complements the subject matter.
Camera settings: Nikon D3, 17-35mm at 17mm, f/2.8, shot at ISO 200, f/22 and 3 seconds on a tripod
Lightroom—set white and black point, and added mid-tone contrast.
Photoshop—used nik Silver Efex Pro with antique preset to convert image to B&W.
