Back in November, I committed to a project called Fallen Leaves that would challenge me photographically with what I have collected over the past two autumn seasons and the marco equipment I rarely use.
But other projects and one other pretty good reason, kept me from starting until now.
The setup for this first test is a simple enclosed translucent tent box with a black interior. The lights being used are cheap lamps from the local hardware store and a couple small spring loaded clamps to hold the leaves in position. The lens being used is a Canon 100mm macro.
The following set of images are some of my first experiments. It’s fun not knowing how a slight turn to the right or left can change the frame at such close distances. Here is the quick update. I’m going back to the playing.
