Experience Autumn through Photography
by Margaret Penney | October 18, 2017
Autumn is my favorite season by far and mostly due to all that Fall color. For photographers, it’s an opportune time to get outdoors and snap some images that capture the beauty of this vivid time of year. For inspiration, here are a few projects that pay homage to Autumn’s splendor.
Those Dark Autumn Days
by Heiko Gerlicher
This photo series by Heiko Gerlicher from Coburn Germany captures how color transforms on a cool misty day. Vibrant and more saturated hues push forward against the cooler gray-blue and earthen backdrop. In these images, Gerlicher captures the intense golds and greens of this kind of moody Autumn day and makes the lovely color contrast a central feature of the photographs.
The Middle European Jungle photo series by German photographer Killian Schönberger has a kind of mystery through the use of perspective and the inclusion of large unusually shaped rocks. The images display a wide palette, including reds and dark blues alongside orange and yellow. A bit noir, this photo series has a wonderful eeriness.
by Jessica Torres
Jessica Torres, a photographer from Idaho, presents a rustic and country vision of Autumn from the western US. The gold leaves frame the barn and the image has a warm tone, giving it a relaxed and slightly vintage feel. The image is for sale at Torres’ Creative Market, where she also has other seasonal photos.
You can’t showcase Fall photography without including photos from New England. Taking a weekend tour through Connecticut and Vermont to witness the changing of the leaves can be an almost Zen-like experience. The Vermont Photography Instagram provides an inspiring collection of imagery that captures the best of Autumn in New England.
Autumn in Kilkenny
by Edward Dullard
Edward Dullard from Kilkenny, Ireland is a prolific photographer who has been posting beautiful nature photography to the Internet for decades. His photographs of Autumn in his hometown are incredibly vivid and some look almost like paintings.
