Fall Leaves – Project 365: Day 221

by matt on September 28, 2010

Fall Leaves of ColorIt’s beginning to feel more like Fall these days.  While the weather has been warm and nice the angle of the sun definitely speaks to a change in the season.  And now we are starting to see the leaves of our maple tree changing colors.

For the photo today I plucked a few leaves at different stages of change and placed them on top of my softbox which attaches to the head of the flash.  The softbox is basically a light diffuser so the light isn’t too harsh.  I wanted to create a nice white background but more importantly I wanted to have the leaves back lit and almost glowing in appearance.

With the leaves on top of the softbox I shot from directly above them.  I love how it turned out.
