One new photograph, almost every day of the year

2015— Chiaroscuro Autumn Leaves

I took a few shots of the brilliant red leaves on a tree at the gym with the morning light behind but I didn’t come close to duplicating the effect I got in the burning leaves photo I took a couple of weeks ago. But, after I added a chiaroscuro filter in Topaz Impressions to play up the dark and light features of the shot, I got something I really liked. I love that word, chiaroscuro. I learned it in the first Art Appreciation class I took in my Freshman year at UC Davis. I still love the concept of light and shadow and how those opposites can impart such dramatic effect in photographs and paintings.
