Leaves are one of my favourite subjects. These photographs (2 in a mini-series of 3) were taken on an unusually hot mid-September day at Toronto’s Centre Island. These leaves were beautifully back-lit by the sun and I got as close as possible to capture them in all their glory.
The blue hue of the picture was added by spraying toner directly onto the photograph. I purposely chose this method of toner application because I like the interspersed effect more than an overall saturation of colour; I wanted to preserve the black and white origin of the images, even though they were toned.
Only one print exists of each image, with no intention of making additional prints.
