Yesterday I did a little book review of Mike Moats’ ebook, “Macro Workshop.” It only seems fitting to post a couple images inspired by his work. Here are several autumn leaves laid-out and arranged on top of a light box. For folks that might not know what a light box or light table is, it is a device that used to be used to view and sort slides… some of you probably remember film, right?. They’re also used to do tracings. In this case I use the light box to create back lighting for the leaves, helping to expose the veins and textures in their structure. I used a macro lens to make this photo, with the camera mounted on a tripod and the shutter triggered via a cable release.
