Photography: Autumn – Winter
In England we are well into Autumn now and some trees have lost all their leaves. The colours are changing and getting lighter, but the days are cloudier and darker. In this picture you can see the water is the same colour as the sky, but with golden reflections of the trees.
In landscape photography, the colour of the sky affects the colour of your whole picture. I often watch the sky and look for an even colour across the sky. Black clouds make an image look dull, but white clouds can be better than sunshine. Then close to sunset, the last golden hour, there are lots of shadows, but the lights can be really great for photography.
I went out on Sunday afternoon, but there was black clouds and not many opportunities to take photos. Then the sun came out as I was passing this academy and so I took a few photos. The black clouds are still there, but you can see the effect of the sun, low in the sky.
This autumn scene of a family feeding the geese is almost like a painting. It’s very much in the style of John Constable. I like the autumn colours.
I photographed the switch-on of the local Christmas Lights on Friday and night photography can produce some spectacular result in the run up to Christmas.
Our Christmas lights were switched on by Gareth Gates of Pop Idol fame. You can read more about the Gareth Gates Photo Shoot on A Zillion Ideas. You can also comment on this post or follow me on Twitter even…
