I’m done with photography of the autumn season at least. Trying to get interesting photos of fall is always difficult, in my opinion, (unless, of course, you live in the Rockies or New England) and with the lackluster display this year I’m not going to purposely attempt to document it anymore.
Of course I am not a “nature photographer” by trade, so it’s no big deal. It’s not like anyone comes here just for the nature photography. At least I hope not! I don’t have the discipline it takes to take creative and interesting nature photos. I emphasized “creative” and “interesting” because getting those two elements in one nature photo is the key in making a photo jump out at me. And I use those as vague, generic terms without getting into the light, composition, etc. elements. Regardless, I don’t think I want to put in the time for “doing it right”, at least as far as nature photography is concerned.
Oh, I’ll still shoot a leaf here or there but I think my efforts will be better spent in other areas. I have been evaluating my images from the past few years trying to find my strengths and weaknesses. I certainly found where my weaknesses are and I’m going to try not to go there in the future. The strengths? I’m still sorting those out! Stay tuned.
Don’t give up on fall! You’ve taken two very fine photos–take leaves with “things.”
I guess what I meant was that I probably won’t purposely go out to take fall photos. Of course if something catches my eye I won’t pass up the opportunity. 🙂
