Photographing Fall (Day 1 of 31 Days)
In North America, it’s full-on fall now. I live in eastern Canada, which is so beautiful at this time of year. That’s nothing special, though; most places are amazing at this time of year. And if you’re in the southern hemisphere, watching spring arrive, you’re right in the middle of all that beauty.
It’s the transitions, I think. Transitions give us incredible opportunities to focus on what’s changing, what’s just coming into its fullest form, what’s on the way out and you’d better get one more quick look in, while you can. Transitions remind us, viscerally, that change is all around us, all the time; it’s with us every moment.
So photographing the changing seasons is a way of both stopping time and acknowledging its continuous motion. When you’re taking photos this month, you might try to let that awareness guide your focus. (And, coming up for the rest of this month: less philosophy; more concrete examples and suggestions!)
