I'm Ingunn. This blog is about learning to make photos instead of just taking them. This is where I collect and express ideas and thoughts, and sometimes I might get sidetracked, too! There is so much to be learned. I have an urge for making life better, simpler and tastier. My picture galleries are in the sections travel and portfolio. I write in English, but I am Norwegian, and comments are most welcome in both languages.

EARTH WONDERS by anaeugenio

Abstract Autumn

Click on the photo to view largeAutumn never stops fascinating me with its colors and shapes. The trees turn golden and red, then eventually the leaves fall down to earth and create a colorful blanket on the ground. However, there are millions of depictions of pretty autumn trees out there, and somehow the idea of these trees is more interesting to me than only recording what I see. The shimmering light through the foliage makes me think about Monet and impressionism, and I wanted to try to capture something similar. I used my tripod and slow shutter speed. I then moved my tripod vertically while the exposure was made. 

What do you think? Did I manage to make a successful impressionistic photo, or should I rather have tried something else?

Aperture f/22, shutter speed 0.6s, ISO 100. Can also be seen large in my Abstract gallery
