Autumn is a favourite time of year of mine to be out shooting, for obvoious reasons. The range of colours is a joy to the eye and the light is often perfect, not too bright and contrasty. Nature has its final throw of the dice before the bleakness of winter sets in (which can have its own stark beauty). A melancholy fills the autumn air as nature surrenders and lets go of what it can no longer afford to carry, what energy is left returning to its roots to nourish and sustatin itself through the barren winter months.
Today I spent the morning in one of Londons many parks, Greenwich Park, which has a fabulous array of autumn colour - leaves turning ochre, yellow and crimson. I decided to shoot with my aperture 'wide open' giving a narrow depth of field which isolates the colourful leaves against a blurred background. I hope this gives extra impact. I finished the shoot with a Flat White and a slice of Chocolate, Orange and Mandarin Loaf - perfect!
I hope you enjoy the results, and feel free to comment and or share on social media.
