Brand New Life by Gene Walls
Clear

I know, “it’s just a leaf”… but in my mind, this is an amazing example of the new life that is born in the spring.

This macro photo was captured with a Canon EOS 10D using a Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 USM Macro prime lens. The shutter speed was 1/60th sec at f/4. The camera’s ISO was set to 400. A Canon MR-14 Macro Ring Lite flash was mounted on the lens and used in Auto Mode #3. A Manfrotto tripod was used with a remote shutter release.

Hello, My name is Gene. I live in the Susquehanna river valley (West Branch), in the mountains of north central Pennsylvania. I strive to produce photographic images that are simply “true” to the subject, usually with minimal post processing. If something is beautiful or interesting enough to deserve a viewer’s attention, it justifies being captured just as it is …or as close to reality as possible.

    Just a leaf but taken so well!!! Love the shiny light green almost as it is still stretching to it’s full length.

  • Thank you very much! This was one of the very few times that I used a special “macro ring flash” outdoors. I am so pleased that you like the results! I really appreciate the “FAV”!
