This is a 1950s Space Age lamp in our bedroom. (Between the town, and some of our stuff, it's beginning to look like we live in Pleasantville! This was tough; the light was low, natural light from two windows on either side in this corner, and this is one of the first photos I've ever taken in RAW. I used custom white balance, 35mm 2.0 lens, manual mode and manual focus. Settings were f/5.6, ss: 4", ISO 400.
Then in Adobe Raw converter, I just played with some of the sliders trying to get colors and lighting better. The main thing I did was increase the exposure (although if the camera said it was metered correctly for exposure, why does it need a great deal of adjustment??) The walls are actually a pale green, although with the sun just beginning to set, it probably does seem to have more of a blue cast.
Any suggestions? Shooting in RAW was much more difficult than I expected. . . or at least working with the converter was difficult. The photo was quite dark, given the low light, so maybe I was just expecting too much from RAW, in terms of what it can salvage.
Thanks for looking and any CC!
