Look familiar ???
Yes I know, I have shot similar leaves recently, but this is more about the lighting and it made the perfect subject :)
Lighting from behind brings out the intricate structure in the leaf and does a great job of bringing out the colour. Unfortunately it also brings out any blemishes, which I'm going to call character :) It is a dead leaf after all.
Shot with a single mini flash and a couple of cardboard boxes. Want to know more, check out the setup in the first comment below.
