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.
While in Brazil, I started a project photographing decaying leaves, which I will continue to execute and talk about in future posts.
One of my favorite trees for photography in the Atlantic Rainforest of Brazil is the Embaúba (Cecropia). In this post I talk about this leaf and give tips on how to photograph it.
