Looking Down in the Fall (Two Photographs)

There is a saying in photography, “look up, look down, look around and you will find something to shoot”. It got hammered into me when I started photography and it has stuck with me as a mantra about finding things to photograph.

My favourite camera is the Fuji XT-3, it makes taking a slightly more artistic approach to the world so much easier. It handles like a charm, the 18-55 f2.8 lens is especially good. Sad to say but with the complications of the pandemic I am not getting out enough nor am I taking many photos.

In the fall, the forest floor is alive with great photographic opportunities, not least of which are all the fallen leaves. The only catch here is composition and the decisions on colour or black and white.

I called this a different take only because most fall photos are in colour. While spectacular, I find the colour sometimes obscures wonderful shapes and forms. In black and white the forest takes on an almost sculpted look.

I could have titled this hanging on, but my point was as the year moves on colors fade and only a few sturdy and plucky flowers hang in before the chill and dampness of fall really digs in. It can be an interesting time to shoot, certainly the light is much more interesting.

These were taken last fall. I like the play of light and how the stark cold blues contrasted with the silvery grey of the squirrel. It was one of those cases where the white balance was perfect out of camera.

I did not get much of an opportunity to shoot fall colours this year. This is one shot I liked. But then the question in my mind was whether colour or black and white was the best approach (knowing full well that fall is usually all about colour). I am increasingly interested in black and white photography and there are enough differences between the two treatments that I will probably print both for my collection.
