The Simple Leaf

The Simple Leaf

Leaves. Not that exciting to photograph when you think about it except in the fall when they turn colors. Then again, if you have some fun and know you are going to turn the images into black and white from the onset you really can make an interesting image out of it. While initially I was only going to edit the leaves in front of the tree but it turned out to be the weakest image in the set but I like it a lot because of the vine covered tree behind it so I left it. The other images are what you can do when you have light hitting the leaves in a unique way and the black and white conversion really brings out the tones and textures of them. For those of you that are leaf purist, they were all green when I shot these.

Another note. I used to set the height on all my images to 1000 pixels. This had to do with storage constraints on the server. Now that I have unlimited storage and my editing can hold up to closer scrutiny the size has increased to 1500 pixels in height. Width is always handled by height so its a guess to what that really is.

For inquiring minds; shot on my Panasonic G5 with the Nikon 55 1.2. No I haven’t given up on Olympus. Just both are gripped now and shoving them in a camera bag isn’t as easy as it once was and I’m really too lazy to un-grip them.

Enjoy.

One thought on “The Simple Leaf

  1. We liked your photos. My favorite was the first. It has a 3-D effect that makes the black and white photo more appealing over the color. All had the effect of 3-D, I thought. With leaving the color in, would they have the same 3-d effect?
