October 17, 2013  Red oak leaf at night appearing to be in motion with the camera panning, twisting and strobe added. Actually, the petite leaf is growing directly out of the bark on the side. The flickering ambient street light provided the warm color temperature and the dashed streaks caused by the pulsing light. An on camera strobe hit the wet leaf giving it more natural color and creating white spots where the leaf was moist with water. The slow exposure allowed the photographer to shoot with strobe then quickly flick his wrist to create the illusion of the leaf in motion.
