My muse. I've photographed the tree so many times with so many different cameras, lenses, film and digital. This is one of my favourites. A simple composition by a subtle demonstration of how realistic a Trichome image can be. At first and second glance you really wouldn't know. Upon closed examination the subtle clues become visible. I love this.
Twisted Chestnut Trichome
Trichrome images are made up of 3 separate black and white negatives each made with one of Red/Green/Blue filters. The negatives are then scanned and a new single digital image created using the scans as the RGB channels. The final colours are greatly influenced by changes in the scene during the three exposures. Wind, light levels, additional in camera filtering are all used to create different effects.
