Tree Portraits taken at the June 2014 ACBS Exhibit
At our recent June exhibit, one of our members brought her professional photography equipment, complete with black backgrounds, lighting and her genuine sense of artistry to make these trees really pop, and seem almost magical.
Taking tree portraits like these are a real fun activity at an exhibit, and we suggest to other clubs might enjoy doing this as well. The stark backgrounds and correct lighting really acents the tree's features, and helps us see and appreciate some of the awesome beauty in even our own humble bonsai. Plus the portraits are a good way to keep a great record for the future, as a comparison as these trees continue to change, refine and develop.
