When I arrived home Sunday afternoon it was raining. I happened to notice some wet maple leaves lying on the walk. I love how the color seems more saturated when the leaves are wet. So I gathered a few leaves and took them inside to my little studio.
I wanted to go for a background where everything appears to be white. I lined the box that my new computer came in with white paper and placed a lamp inside it. Then I placed a diffuser over the top and covered it with an old window. After arranging the leaves on top of the glass, I set up another light along with my flash.
I processed the image using Lightroom 3, along with Nik’s family of plugins.
