I visited the county park today to attempt some autumn photos. It was a beautiful day with the sunshine and blue skies and the park was looking very nice. The crowds weren’t too bad and a lot of people were doing the same thing I was – taking pictures. Only they seemed to be taking pictures of each other and not the trees. 😉
My one disappointment was that almost all of the leaves were yellow. Almost no other colors could be found. It made for a nice golden hue filtering through the woods but after a while it was tough to take any photos with any variation. So I left out the big picture shots and thought I would just focus on details. I’m not sure what it was today but I wasn’t find anything that interested me creatively. Just wasn’t feeling anything. So no award winning shots today but I did experiment a little, got a few shots in including some “post-cardy” shots, and generally had a nice day enjoying the autumn woods.
Both of these photos were done using some in camera effects. The first shot is simply a double exposure with the second shot being out-of-focus. For the other shot I took advantage of an in camera filter that creates star-shaped highlights. I know, a bit gimmicky. Maybe all of that yellow light was making me a little loopy.
