Autumn in the Studio

A week or two back I started a winter project photographing leaves and other items I have been picking up on my walks around the neighborhood.

I set up my table top studio and started experimenting with different lighting techniques and lenses.

This week Tina gives us the prompt You Choose for the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge. So after considering a few options I decided to go with a small selection of autumn in the studio photos.

Thanks Laura. Another reason is that the subjects will be buried under snow and frozen at some point. We’ve been going through a snow/freeze/thaw cycle for weeks now but eventually the thaws will stop.

Thanks Tina. We’ve been in a snow/thaw cycle for weeks now. We must have had over 12 inches of heavy, wet snow in total but almost all of it has thawed at the moment.

Yes, sometimes they look like scales. I also thought that they resembled butterfly/moth wings with the scales and veins. They also make me think of old medieval maps as seen on some episodes of Time Team. Little plots of land and dwellings along the roads (veins).
