It’s getting boring now. I’m now at Day 4 with my dead leaf. This time I put a macro extension tube on the X-T30 and stuck the lens right up against the leaf. Focal length was 55mm (Macro tubes only work at the vey end of these lenses) –
In Lightroom, I used split toning to bring out the reds in the leaf’s shadow areas, – just a tiny amount of saturation used.
I’ve got to find a new leaf soon. I’m running out of options. Either that or I need to get out and find something to photograph really soon.
In my last video-log from the studio I was demonstrating how I did a ‘Photo-Noir’ selfie with one light and a reflector, and someone later asked why I’d referred to it as an ‘experiment’ when its a well known studio technique!
Well, what was experimental about it was that I was using a single rotolight, instead of a flash.So, what’s a rotolight, and what makes it different from a standard studio flash?
