Mysterious Leaves

Published / by adminjc / Leave a Comment

Hi Everyone,

I’m always looking for interesting things to photograph. Backgrounds, textures and interesting subjects can be found anywhere. The other day my wife and I were taking our evening walk, and in a neighbor’s yard I saw some interesting leaves on the ground. They were brown, with a dusting of white that almost looked like frost. They were also in interesting shapes, including twists and curls.

I grabbed a handful of leaves, brought them home and photographed a few of them in a Foldio 3 light tent. I had some nice graphic images, but I wanted something different, so I one of started playing with one of the photos in Smart Photo Editor. I bought this program many years ago and always have fun playing with it.

After trying many images, I came up with ten that I thought looked good. Here are a few of the images I created. I hope you like them.

Photo – Sago Palm Cone

Hi Everyone,

Sometimes, when you’re shooting nature, you get a happy surprise. That’s the case with this photo of a female Sago Palm cone. Male cones are more, well, cone shaped. Like a pine cone.

I came across this palm several years ago in the atrium of the La Brea Tar Pits in Los Angeles, California. And I was lucky because Sago Palms only produce flowers once every three to four years. When I went back five years later, there was no bloom.

I like shooting the natural world for several reasons, including the surprises you encounter. They can be exciting, beautiful, dangerous or something that will challenge your photography skills.

If your shooting nature, be flexible, creative and ready to solve problems so a disadvantage becomes an advantage.

Have Fun,
Jeff
