Stay-at-Home Photography: 10: Mini Oak Leaf

August 18, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

I plucked this off a tiny oak sapling.  It couldn't have measured longer than one inch.  Held up to the light (with the green of bushes blurred in the background), I loved the beautiful red edges and rim lighting that resulted from backlighting the leaf. I do notice that one result of shooting wide open at F2.8 is that some of the little pointy tips, and a couple of the other areas, are out of focus due to the narrow depth of field. I wish I'd tried focus stacking.
