Photo Study: Leaf Catcher

This is a simple still life photograph of a pool skimmer in which good exposure and some brilliant light make for a striking photographic image. This photograph is technically a black & white image that was produced by using a photographic technique called split-toning.

Split-toning is an effect which has its origins in the days of film and it involves tinting the highlights in a black & white image one color and the shadows another color. Split-tone effects make for brilliant tonal shifts and exotic colorations in a black & white image.
