Thread: Just Leaves

  1. #431

    Re: Just Leaves

    Here's a shot from a few weeks ago... It's from my first batch of Arista.EDU 100 4x5 rolled BTZS style in Dektol 1:1.


    I definitely like cpercy's shot above and Ken Lee's leaves in general. Can you guys share how you get that, for lack of a better way to say it, delicate contrast?

    Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

    Not sure if these are leaves or seed pods. More of the plant was meant to be in focus but the wind spun the stem around in the bottle right at the moment of exposure. Next time I'll try it indoors.

    A dodgy one I like from a year or so back. Should have stopped down more.

    I like both photos, Jonathan, but especially this last one. I particularly like the way the light and dark leaves work together. Please do more.

    Tony,

    Thanks. I agree that the second image is stronger. It shows off the delicacy of the dried stems and leaves a bit more. And I do plan on doing more photos of these things. I'll try some artificial lighting on them next time, but I am a novice when it comes to that. We'll see how it goes.

    I love the translucence of these dried plants so much I have to make sure to collect a whole bunch of them this fall so I'll have lots of them on hand. Not sure what the plant is called. I'll have to do some research.

    So it is, thanks for the help. The Latin name is lovely. Now if I can only find the "help-me-make-some-money" plant I'll be set!

    I'm pretty sure they arrest you for having those in you possession.

    Ahh, right. THAT plant. Not looking to lose my house over some gardening, but I could use the money....
