Working an Image of a Leaf

Photography is like anything else. The harder you work the more you will get out of it. I like to tell my students to work an image.That means looking at all angles and views of a subject. Weather you are shooting people, landscapes or objects such as a leaf use your camera to study and record different views and angles. Get to know your subject through the images you make.The images on this post are of one leaf. Be brave shoot shoot shoot! This is the digital age of photography. In the film days I always had the sick feeling in the back of my mind how much is this shoot going to cost me. That fear is gone as I continually increase how many images I shot of one subject. Make sure when you find that next interesting subject get all the angles (low,high, front,back) and don't worry about those people that give you a funny look as you get down on you stomach to get that interesting angle.
