Summer Coda_A Trip to Orange World

Canon 5D Mark II camera and Canon 24-105mm f4 L series USM lens @ 24mm. Exposure Details: 1/125 second @ f6.3 ISO 100

It’s late Sunday afternoon and I’m about to fly back to Melbourne for some work commitments prior to returning later in the week to the set of the Australian made motion picture film Summer Coda. Earlier this afternoon some of the actors visited Orange World just over the border in NSW for some fruit picking training and to gain a feel for the orange groves, an important setting in the film.

Greeted by our hosts Mario and Maria we all enjoyed a fun and informative ride on a tractor-pulled, open-air carriage through the tree-lined grove. Mario provided great entertainment. His enthusiasm and extremely pleasant nature made the trip a joy for all involved. And here’s the tip of the day: I have never tasted sweeter orange juice than that served to me at Orange World.

Today’s pic features Mario leading the team on a tour through the orange grove. While the day was overcast, and much cooler than Days 9 and 10 on the shoot, the strong light produced quite high contrast conditions. I had to employ fill flash to reduce the contrast back to how one (the brain) would remember things if you’d been along for the day.

Image processing was conducted in Adobe Lightroom 2 and Adobe Photoshop CS4.

Thanks to Mario and Maria from all your new friends at Summer Coda.
