I enjoyed the article and am trying to take it to heart. I'm working on something I know is hard for me - and I feel like I'm failing. But that's good. My nemesis is translucence and I'm fascinated with translucence.
This is a view I had recently from inside my house, looking out into the setting sun through the Virginia Creeper vine around my screened in porch. The colors w/the back lit sun were mesmerizing.
This will be one technique I am going to have to research more thoroughly. For now, this is my attempt at translucence. Below is the actual photo. Likely, part of what I'm battling with is the camera, the way it blows out the light. So, will need to observe this more in actual light - with my own eyes - not my camera eyes.
