Camera: Canon EOS 500D
Lens: Canon EF-S 10-22mm @ 10mm
Exposures: 3 (-2, 0, +2)
Exposure time (middle): 0.7s
Tripod: Manfrotto 190CXPRO4
Location: In the Stanislaw Staszic Chamber of the Wieliczka Salt Mine
Software: Lightroom 4.3, Photoshop CS6, Photomatix Pro
Production: Even though I had enough time in the Stanislaw Staszic Chamber to capture the scene, this photo was taken in ISO 400. Reason for that is that I simply forgot to adjust it, as I was in such rush all the way through the salt mine.
When I decided on how to frame the scene, I wanted to show the depth of the place. I didn’t want any of that disturbing tourist information stuff in it, so I pointed the camera just high enough to hide all of these.
In the post-processing I didn’t do any lens correction even though it was shot at 10mm. In contrary, I decided to leave those converging lines in the way in which the lens captured them, as they all shift the focus to the light in the middle. I then enhanced this effect by adjusting the light within the photo.
