This close-up is also photographed from the same tree. I wonder how many images I could create from just one tree. The imagination is just going wild sometimes and it is a good thing.
Happy photographing and don’t forget: You snooze you loose! This is true for many things and certainly for photography!
I went back to photograph the tree again. This time I basically doubled my extension tubes to get “closer”to the tree. I discovered the path that was created by creature who lived underneath the bark which is gone by now.
Enjoy and happy photographing!
I shot this image yesterday from the same tree than the other two. I used a reflector to get as much light as possible to show as much structure as possible.
Enjoy and go out photographing!
I photographed this image from the same tree than yesterday’s photo. It is a very old tree on the bike path in Merced, CA. I walked by this tree many times since it is on my exercise route and I just overlooked it.
Keep in mind: The purpose of constant photographic exercises is to train your eyes that you see things and images that we normally overlook!
Keep on shooting!
One of the greatest gifts as a photographer is creativity and imagination. These gifts have to be combined with persistence and hard work. I want you to continue to photograph just one tree of you choice and create images of great fantasy that the viewer does not recognise as a tree or part of a tree. Enjoy and have fun.
I found this old tree on my exercise walk which has lots of cracks and structure.
