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'VE BEEN TONED.
