Clone Troopers and Sumac

Fall CT 01 1000wEvery Fall the sumac leaves turn amazing colors of reddish orange, and I really love looking at these colors each year.  They last for a very short time, so I often feel the urge to photo them just to preserve those colors for a bit longer just in case I wish to look upon them again.  And then I realized that I have been negligent in posting anything much lately.  So….. I decided to put two things I enjoy together in my photos.

Now mind you that not all these pictures are award winning shots, but they are fun and can be a source of inspiration.  Lot’s of “what ifs” come to my mind.  I am a fan of the Clone Wars series and some shots remind me of the amazing planets where the Clone Troopers fought alongside their Jedi Knight companions.

This was a fun angle to shoot from.

I wonder what Commander Cody is looking at.

Anakin always looks so intense. This is reflected especially in the action figure made of him.

Trying out different angles and careful cropping can make some pictures better.

I have often contemplated using these pictures for the basis of an actual painting. Some I have used for drawing exercises. Either way, it is good practice for composition and contrast.
