This is the fourth post about my project “Folhas Secas”. I talk about test printing my photos as a means to help me choose my “best work” to post on my online portfolio.
Today’s featured photograph is a seasonal still life celebrating the harvest in the Northern Hemisphere.
Long exposure photography on a foggy morning at the Marin Headlands. It is finally raining in the Central Valley of California!
I explain the basic differences in the leaves of tropical and Mediterranean-climate plants and show one of the sets-ups I use to photograph leaves when using artificial light.
Martis’ Creek Cabin near Tahoe last year was surrounded by yellow aspens and reminds me of the poem Autumn Day by Reiner Maria Rilke
My first steps working on the project “Folhas Secas” included defining my vision, laying out a set of guidelines to work with, taking test shots, and finding a logical way to organize them.
