This blog article is about atmospheric photography in autumn. The fourth season shows itself in wonderful play of colors, often in stark contrast to the dark trunks of the trees, for example. This color change is unique every year.
Catch the mood…
When we think of autumn photos, the focus is primarily on the color orange, surrounded by shades ranging from yellow to fiery red to deep bordeaux and brown. It’s always worth looking for a particularly beautiful subject to photograph. Plants, leaves, tree bark or fungi in a bed of moss are suitable for this. Just look for the unusual with strong contrasts.
The sunlight in autumn
The midday sun leads to very dominant shadows in autumn. In areas with a lot of trees, however, the midday hours are exactly the right moment to capture the brightly colored foliage. The sunlight makes the colors look even more so. The sunlight falling through the branches makes the leaves shine and shine in an unforgettable way.
The red, orange, yellow and brown leaves in autumn make wonderful photo opportunities. Whether it’s a colorful blanket of leaves that covers the ground like a luminous carpet or the remaining leaves on the trees – the contrast of the trunks, as can be seen in the picture, looks simply beautiful.
At first glance, the photo looks very clear in color, but if you look closely, you can see the fog fields in the background, which give the picture a very special flair. Autumn is a real paradise for interesting photos. The bright colors of the leaves, the light and weather conditions are ideal for particularly great motifs.
With all the colorful leaves, it’s easy to forget that autumn also has other motifs to offer, such as tree bark, mushrooms or forest animals. If you have discovered the latter, it is advisable to take several pictures at the same time, since such an opportunity does not arise very often. Surprisingly, this very photogenic hedgehog allowed himself to be photographed patiently and the material was simply ready for film. So a few days later I had the idea of sticking the photos behind a film strip made of photo cardboard. If you also have use for such a frame, you are welcome to print out the template using the button.
…and this is how it’s done:
Download the template sheet for the filmstrip and print it out. Attach the sheet to a piece of black photo cardboard and use a pricking needle to vigorously trace the contours. It is best to use a ruler to make the lines nice and straight. After removing the template sheet, the lines are clearly visible on the photo cardboard, so that the areas can be easily removed with a cutter. Then cut the photos to the right size and fix them with glue behind the film strip.
Now you can create your autumn scene place in a great photo album. Make the pages interesting, label them with dates or stick in little memos. When choosing accessories, always look for something special. You can find a variety of inspiration for designing photo pages in the previous posts.
