Leaves #2

This was a fun experiment using two oak leaves I had collected from the oak sapling I planted when I was younger. Something else I love about leaves is finding skeleton leaves. They would have been brilliant for this shoot. I simply held the leaves up to a bright spotlight. With the camera focused on the leaf, the background became black with help from the light.

I may even have another go in the near future with other materials similar to the leaves. If I do, I will be sure to post the results.

I just love zooming in and looking at how complex nature is. Truly stunning!

Feel free to use these photos as phone backgrounds (one reason I didn't watermark them!) I quite like the 4th and 8th photo as my backgrounds!
