Join Justin Reznick for an in-depth discussion in this video Taking shots of colorful foliage for a fine art look, part of Landscape Photography: Tropical Scenes.
- Now that we've had the opportunity…to photograph some flowers,…I'm really interested in plants.…And the color on these leaves is just stunning.…And the way the light's striking it,…it's just beautiful.…So what I'm doing is I'm kind of walking back and forth,…taking different pictures…and no clear composition in mind,…just trying different things.…And the first thing I notice is as a static image…this isn't going to be particularly compelling.…It's just beautiful to the eye…but it's not quite making a beautiful photograph.…
So I want to use a technique called multiple exposures.…What I'm going to do…is I'm going to take a file that I'm able to make here…and duplicate it and do some rotation,…see if I cannot make it more interesting in post.…It's going to be a really fun experiment…to try and take something beautiful to me in the field…and also turn it into a photograph…that pleases me as well.…I'm going to take a few more shots…and then we'll get right into post.…(clicking)…
