Banana Leaf by Siew Bee Lim

This is a photograph of part of a banana leaf. At the time of taking the photo, there was ray of morning sunshine on the underneath of the leaf. The photo attempts to present the texture and pattern of the leaf as most visible. I try to make it artistic, which looks better on a sunny day then on a cloudy day.

Photographer: Siew Bee Lim (Singapore) Registered
Born in 1965 in Singapore, photography was one of the old hobbies of Siew Bee Lim. Now she would like to learn it formally via Light & Composition platform as she believes it’s not too late. Since primary school she is not good in drawing; she doesn’t have artistic hand that some of her classmates have. Nonetheless, she likes reading since young, and would try to appreciate Chinese paintings. Few years after she started working as a Programmer, she took up photography as a hobby. She attended a short course which included a session in the darkroom. In those days, good photographs were dependent on good darkroom skills. It was unlikely that she spent much time in the darkroom. Hence the hobby didn’t last long then. She believes that the present learning experience has a longer way to go.
