Experiment - On Canvas - P1470153 - Drying Fern

P1470153 - Experiment because one of two things or both. So a personal development assignment.

Main reason for the photograph was a plan to get texture into the background using SOOC rather than post processing. The chosen texture comes from a white canvas backboard for oil painting.

The series also included using strobist lighting and developing my skills in that area to.


If you have time any pointers or comments would be useful I realise that the composition is important but quite keen for any feedback on lighting, bad and good, focus (and focus that could be improved by the lighting), sharpness or loss of detail Feel free to trash, bash em and add notes etc
