Red Tree

This tree is right outside of my house and had some gorgeous light shining on it. I thought this would be a great time to practice with the "in the round" technique made famous by Pep Ventosa. This was only my 2nd time trying this but I think this came out pretty well. This tree wasn't the greatest subject with the road an other houses in the background but I don't think they ended up being too distracting. I'm having a lot of fun experimenting with this technique. Would love to know what you think.

Hey Kyle, great attempt. I'd be interested to know how many images you took for this.

Trees that are not uniform as you circle always provide a challenge - you either take layer many angles and perhaps lose definition in the limbs, or take few and live with the evidence of supporting elements.

Thanks Alan. I don’t remember how many photos I took for this. I took it last spring. I want to say in the 20-30 range. I personally think this is my best ITR attempt so far. One mistake I seem to make every time I try this is not taking enough photos! All we have here in NC are ununiform trees haha! I made another attempt on a funky tree at jockey’s ridge in the outer banks last week. I haven’t had a chance to edit it yet though. If it comes out “ok” I’ll probably post it to your group.
