The Fern Bank

I looked at the ferns while getting the mail, and decided to try photographing them in a different way. I saw a photograph in National Geographic the other day, and the photographer had illuminated a cactus with a small hand-held flash held off the camera, over the top of the cactus. So I decided to try the same technique with the fern bank. This is the result. The difference between this flash image, and a natural-light image, is that some of the ferns are more brightly illuminated by the flash, in this photograph. I really like the effect.
