Many years ago I had taken a photograph using a film camera (Pentax) that my grandfather had given me. It was a similar shot of roots, up close, with leaves scattered around. I really loves that shot. I lovingly developed it in the dark room, burned and dodged with great care, and was over joyed when someone asked me to put it into a show. I did so, and it was stolen.
i usually use my current camera for just taking reference shots for my paintings, but love to dip my toe into the world of photography every now and again. And so, Katy and I were out in the freezing cold one day and I came upon these roots and that old photo came to mind. Now with a digital camera that, alas, I am not as practiced with I tried to recreate that shot. I like this, but I also realize that it needs something. I'm just not sure what. It's not quite right. I am sadly not as technically learned as most of you. So I will try to follow along.
I would love to hear your thoughts.
I took this using my Canon Powershot S3 Just using the standard 58mm lens that came with it.
Thanks in advance!
