    I was sitting out in the garden the other day ( drinking champagne of all things) and I got a little bored so I started to make a set of pictures with just the leaves from various plants/trees, This is the second attempt as the first one I didn't get right at all. This time I set up the little portable light tent etc. I used one light positioned 92million miles away upper right.

    You should ahve moved that light back a bit but...

    Like the isolation and the desaturated PP although I'd probably try to tone down those highligts a spot myself.

    I did think about the highlights a little, so I guess I dhould have...must have a rule If I consider it do it..

    I would have moved the light source back a bit, but I couldn't find my ladders, my real ladders that is not my step ladders.

    What about a long stick or several broom handles tied togther and then just giving it a bit of a nudge?! Works with my softbox!! :)

    Or you could just wait until later on in the year, I've heard its further away then. Or move to the moon.

    You might need to put the twig in a jar of water in the meantime though (and tie a poly bag round it if you are planning on a lunar relocation, Oh and don't let the estate agent trick you into buying on the dark side!!). Aren't we all so helpful. :)

    Vic - nice idea with the light tent - it produces an interesting effect AND allows you to work on sunny days, which is a plus.

    You planning to show us some more taken with this kit?
