Learn To Fly

I worked on this image today so that I could write a tutorial for my blog on how I've been doing these leaf shots. This image is actually from the same one as the falling leaves one.


I wanted to write one earlier but I just couldn't seem to come up with any ideas for what should be coming out of the leaf, I thought about balloons or stars but then I thought butterflies are kind of like leaves. They start out as one version of a living creature and then slowly they change into another part of it. Caterpillars turn to butterflies, buds turn to leaves which then turn back into soil to feed the tree.......the world is so connected....


I posted the tutorial for this on my blog, I hope that I was clear in my process and that it makes sense. If you decide to try it out, please send me a message or a comment as I'd love to see it!
