Cascade on the barbed wire New photography

Post  Tony on Thu Oct 11, 2012 5:25 pm

I have recently tried a new set up for photographing my trees, the background is Black Velvet, it absorbs the flash and cuts out reflections. I have also included an 'enhanced' version produced by IBC member Ed van der Reek. Thanks Ed... nice touch me thinks.

WOW. beautiful and "reflective" (i hope its the right word....).

your presentation is really taking the "tree" and forward it ahead. this is ART.

What a great composition! I really like this. Everything goes so well together. Gnarly, hollowed trunk to barbed wire, pot to fence post, tree to pot, and the green of foliage to moss. The lighting is fantastic as well.

this one is really nice - both in pics and for real, if the stand wood was a few shades darker it would be brilliant.

Black cloth is the best by far, velvet looks great tony - a spare bit from your cape or was it the bed sheet Very Happy

see you Sunday?

Very nice Tony! I could even see a woodpecker hole in a post/stump such as this to add atmosphere.
What kind of tree is this?
Thanks,
Todd

Tony, That is a wonderful tree and I like the display (good idea ThumbsUp ).

Ed, I've seen the demo video of CS6 and it is a super duper editing software (best in the world?). I can't even imagine what it can really do. Must be fun to play with it.

Hi Fore, the second image has been manipulated in Photoshop by Ed.

Hans will be presenting a lecture along with the other artists on the Saturday evening... there MAY be some highlights of the talks here after the event.
