I was playing with the digital macro setting on my camera this morning before I set out for a photowalk. The keyboard being right in front of me, it became my test subject. I didn’t think about using it for my theme until late in the day after finding nothing else that met the theme criteria for five! So, I reshot with the focus on the 5 keypad.
I processed this by using a gausian blur on the non-5 keys.
Then, as I was posting this, I noticed that because it is now evening, my keys are backlit, so I took another picture and processed similarly:
Still curious about how post-proceesing could help this out, I selected just the 5 key again, and this time used a filter to lighten it.
Which do you think works best? Is there another post-processing trick (or even photo trick) that you would recommend?
Or maybe this is just a bad idea and I should keep looking for 5 of something. Note that I never posted for “trio” last month. I must find numbers a challenge!
