Facebook Pixel dPS Weekly Photo Challenge – Leaves dead or alive 

dPS Weekly Photo Challenge – Leaves dead or alive 

Facebook group photographer, Bodhisatya Bhaduri, suggested ‘Leaves Dead or Alive’ and I guess as it’s Autumn out here in Australia and Spring over there on the other side of the world, there will be a good mix of those two extremes in the leaf world (what did I just write!)

For this challenge you need to make a photograph of a leaf, or where leaves are the main subject of your photograph. Find an interesting way to portray a leaf – use light, make it a silhouette, flatlay? So many ways to photograph a leaf I guess!

Share your photo in this post’s comments (Here’s how – outside link) or share them in our Facebook Group, or just generally on social media and include the hashtag #dPSWeeklyChallenge and #dPSLeavesDeadOrAlive (To do this, simply include those two # words above in your Facebook, Instagram or Twitter post… These serve to help others find similar subject. after you post, click on a hashtag and see what other posts show up that are the same)

This was a leaf on a bridge, it was in a shaft of sunlight, the rest was in shadow.

Autumn leaves trapped, on their cold journey to nowhere.

So then, lets see what you’ve got…. spring or autumn? doesn’t matter, creative leaf photography is all that matters this week! Well, that and the fact that I need a coffee and my 11 week old pup is asleep in my lap and I can’t move – that matters too! 🙂

Don’t forget, you can share your own thoughts for a weekly theme HERE in our group.

Have a great week with your camera!
