One Photo A Day | Day 305 | Maple And Oak
One photo a day challenge: Day 305.
I am really trying to focus on fall themes right now.
It was a good day to play around with a few leaves.
I previously found some leaves that had some modest autumn colors to them.
Today I decided to take those leaves and use them in some indoor macro photography work.
I placed the leaves on the clean white background.
One leaf is a maple leaf and one is a smaller oak leaf.
The maple leaf has more orange and red colors. More darker tones.
The oak leaf is a yellowish color.
I layered the leaves one on top of the other.
The small yellow oak leaf layered over the darker colored maple leaf.
I wanted to create a contrast in shapes and colors.
I lit the leaves from one side to create more shadow and show more texture.
I moved the leaves around to try different compositions. Always keeping the oak leaf on top of the maple to create a layered effect.
