Botanical photography is one of my passions and within this field I particularly enjoy photographing subjects that are past their Source “Oleander leaf, 2021” by Alessandra Chaves — FRAMES Magazine
During a hike in Petrópolis, RJ, Brazil, I photographed the flower of a rare orchid, Worsleya rayneri.
I present the results of my photography project “folhas secas”: twelve black and white photographs of dry leaves are now on my portfolio.
This is a short tutorial showing four possible treatments of a photograph, using Photoshop and layers.
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.
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.
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.
While in Brazil, I started a project photographing decaying leaves, which I will continue to execute and talk about in future posts.
I give a brief introduction to the Frames Photography app, a link to download it, and show two photographs I have recently submitted.
