Rhubarb Leaves & the verbal uses of Rhubarb
Did you know when extras in crowds are asked to create a hubhub of background noise, they are told to say rhubarb to each other many times. Apparently it creates the right level of background noise without any sharp jaggedy consonants standing out.
Photographing Rhubarb Leaves
I just love rhubarb leaves – so huge and magnificent. I wanted to present them as a bouquet but they hardly suit a delicate vase. So… I asked my model (teenage son) to cover his hands in earth (had to pay him more for this!), and set him against a dark background.
