I have all these fern-like plants around my house. From far, they are not too exciting to look at but get closer and they become a jungle filled with ominous possibility. To the naked eye, the bigger and finer leaves appear to be two different plants; they even have different green hues. Up close, they are the same species. I believe the thinner leaves widen as they age because I can’t find the same shot a day later.
Of course, I played with the vibrancy of the greens and I upped the contrast and shadows to pull out the blackness behind the leaves. I wanted the feeling that something was watching us from them. I think it worked. I also wanted to capture the life emanating from the leaves themselves. It’s almost alien.
