    Heucheria leaves

    Backgrounds create a new image impression. Sometimes you need a background to add to the picture some more pizzazz. In these pictures I use the background to simulate a photographic base as I saw it in Karl Blossfeldt’s pictures.

    The starting point is always a color image. With a background named „Aged Board“ the color image already shows an attractiveness of its own.

    The Black & White conversion enhances the contrast a bit which is why I’m adding a little glow.

    From another Heucheria leaf, which shone in a wonderful red, I show here only the black and white conversion with background. This makes the reproduction of its structure much better.
