Leaves_Dog Rocks_Central Victoria
Here’s another image from last weekends workshop in Central Victoria. It’s a close-up shot of leaves at Dog Rocks near the top of Mount Alexander.
It was a beautiful day and I allowed plenty of time at the location to provide all participants with time to wander around, experiment and become attuned to the transforming power of the low-angled light.
The above image was really easy to make. One concept I frequently emphasise is ‘the brighter the light, the darker the shadow’. The sun, which was still bright, highlighted a bunch of leaves causing the surrounding leaves to go into deep shadow. These darker leaves provided a natural vignette by which to frame the sunlit leaves.
This is a fairly straightforward image that shows the subject in a mostly objective manner. Over the next few days I’ll post some images that illustrate a more subjective approach to landscape photography.
