If you are a lover of all things nature in color look away now. I have enough in my archives to make you happy. If you love abstract photography mixed with moody black and white stuff then scroll down.
I would say that it was Metallica’s Ride The Lighting that I was listening to when I edited these images that made them dark and moody but I had every intention of editing these in black and white when I shot them. The simple leaf left alone isn’t that exciting. It’s green. We all know that. Turn the image into black and white and play with the lights and shadows and you get something more. There is another side of a leaf that you just don’t see until you remove the color. It becomes something more and less mundane. Least that is the effect I was shooting for.
Hope you enjoy.
