Photo of the Day

While in California this past June I went to my first sushi restaurant. I was not sure how that was going to work out, but I ended up enjoying it. One photo from that day can be found here. I shot a couple of the dishes that day because they were so new and exotic to me. I also made a picture of the cooks because they are right in front of you. The first one I did very quickly as I can get very shy about photographing strangers. This was part of a second burst that I shot with a little more planning and thought. I actually like this one a bit more than the other ones.

Technical Data

This picture was developed in Lightroom just using the sliders. I thought that I had it right where I wanted it. After getting some presets I revisited the picture to see if I could make it any better. I could, and I used the medium sports preset to do just that. From there I tweaked the sliders a bit because a preset just gets you close. You have to form that preset into your final image.
