Catching translucent light in leaves has proven to be much easier. While the snake plant is in front of natural light, these fern leaves show my usage of a high intensity flashlight. A fill flash even when used remotely does not produce a great effect. Typically I rely on light filtering through tree branches to create a mottled light that would illuminate the subject (seen here). I am working to maintain a naturalness about the images and prevent any formal appearance or staging that could interfere with the integrity of my art. When I view a deliberately crafted photograph, I lose touch with the actual moment because it all looks just too perfect. So, I try very hard to maintain the realness quality. I have two more sets in the study to share with you. Please let me know what you think so far. I would love to know your thoughts on translucent light, spiritually or artistically.
