Winter Leaf - Day 41 of 365
In the end, I decided to fill a non-stick pan up with water (I must be on a water kick lately), float the leaf and bounce light off the back splash in the kitchen, which has nice natural tones to it. I decided to float the leaf in water because I like how the surface tension between the leaf and the water reflects light.
I used a Nikon SB-600 fired via the CLS remote from my D90. I had my trusty 50mm f/1.4 on the camera for the shot. I had the camera and the flash in manual mode. After I found the angle that I liked, I tweaked the aperture and the flash power until I liked the way that it looked.
