Baby Chestnut Leaves on a Painted Background by 


I love baby leaves and it seems like I haven’t photographed them as much in recent years as I did in the past. In going back through my archives, I found this shot of baby chestnut leaves shot in my backyard and it just called out to me. Maybe all the snow we got last weekend (2-3 feet) has me thinking about spring.

This was taken in May of 2008 with my Nikon D80 and my 60mm macro lens. The D80 was my first DSLR and the 60mm my first macro lens, and that’s when I discovered my passion for macro photography.

I used Nik Color Efex Pro 4 Contrast Color Range and Pro Contrast and the texture is Solstice Puissance from French Kiss Textures.

    I’m with you on the subject of baby leaves, as they are so fresh and shiny and always a special shade of new, spring green! These are beautifully detailed against the softness of your textured background.

  • Thank you so much for your kind comments and the fave, Celeste. I love your description of baby leaves – that shade of green really is special and it lasts such a short time!
