Perhaps it’s just a poor choice in background, I don’t know. It just looks weird to me no matter what I do. This is what I’ve done so far. I hope I’m posting this correctly! I’ve only submitted one other image here before, and it’s been a while lol…
It’s wrongly lit, nothing that can be done here in post.
You need a bigger diffused light source, black background and put the light behind the black background towards the subject or opposite if you have a white surface behind the setup.
As usual, there are half a million ways to develop a photo
Here is one of them:

Thanks, I suppose you’re right. I don’t have the option of another light source, though. All I have are two desk lamps with high output LED bulbs behind some parchment paper lol. Some day I hope to get a couple of soft boxes and speedlights but I’m broke right now (still… lol) so it’s going to be a while.
Thank you, I like that you were able to bring out the details and make the green less…green lol.

Or in b/w because there is not much color “information”.

Edit: I made an error when cropping (upper left corner) but I will not correct this .
Can you post the sidecar for this one?

@Testuda Sometimes tension is good. LEDs can be tricky and weak. DIY soft boxes?
