Hey Gergana, you did the "leaves in water" shoots!!! They are gorgeous! :-)
Gergana Vasileva plus November 07, 2007, 05:24 PM
Yes, poplar leaves in the water ... experimentally with flash (which I don't like usually) :D
I am happy you like them! LoL :***)
Volker November 07, 2007, 05:40 PM
Hahaha... but the flash brings you the deep black background. ;-)
Have you ever tried a diffuser on the flash?
Gergana Vasileva plus November 07, 2007, 08:42 PM
No, never! But I'm not sure I can use this with my small camera

You can try a sheet of paper or a half of a table-tennis-ball. I tried a TT-ball. It makes the highlights much softer. Especially on closeups.

Hey, that's fine idea! I will try it! ThanXXXXX, V! :***D
Volker November 08, 2007, 05:38 PM

Ohh, I wished to, but ... impossible! It's too difficult! (for me :)))
Volker November 10, 2007, 01:35 AM
Nothing is impossible! (for you) ;-)

Gergana Vasileva plus November 10, 2007, 08:45 PM
That's fantastic, Atom! Thank you very much! :D

This reminds me another genuine idea -- do you know, guys, the amazing works of this girl:

Volker November 10, 2007, 09:36 PM
The pictures are very nice!!!
Thank you, Gergana! :-)

Very Georgia O'Keefe like, I like yours better, really, because you tie in the background compositionally as opposed to isolating it,,,
Gergana Vasileva plus November 11, 2007, 10:22 PM
Thank you, Charming! Cannot express better my attempts to make the background a part of my pictures. :***)
