Hostas are one of my favorite plants and we have a few of them around the house. It’s getting close to the time of year where I cut them down to the base for winter so I started with this one leaf which I thought seemed photogenic. I attached it to a south window Emo was not using at the moment with Scotch leaf tape and shot some photos over a 2 week time period. The leaf, over the course of the two weeks, and in addition to the original green, took on a yellow and rust color that picked up the light nicely, In the end, though, I thought the colors were a little gaudy so I use a creamtone preset I made in Lightroom. I also got a chance to use the extension tube set from Amazon and it worked very well. More on that later.

Emo eventually demanded the window back so I had to discontinue this series. But there will be another leaf series coming up so stay tuned.
