  12. Great colors and contrast. Sometimes when we let leaves dry in a warm temperature, pressed between papers and under weigh (like inside a dictionary), they keep the color, specially if they aren’t dry yet. I believe it depends on the type of tree.

    • I used to that when I was little. It sometimes worked, and in any case the dried leaves falling unexpectedly out of old books years afterwards brought back nice memories… In this case I just wanted to keep the wet colors bright so I could photograph them against a dark background with my better camera back at the hotel, but with one thing and another I didn’t get to it in time…
