I loved playing with acorns as a child. Last night I collected a coffee can full of big acorns from our neighbor’s lawn. My little girl played with them this morning. She put them in the can, took them out, put them in…
I took the above photo of the acorns specifically for the banner. I was thinking about how to make a long rectangle and how to make the pair of acorns stand out. Here’s how I did it:
The green stand is made of some modeling beeswax that was handy. (I’ve used this trick before.) I made sure there was lots of room around acorn pair to allow for cropping.
I used the macro lens because I wanted lots of detail.
