The season I miss MOST in Michigan is fall. It’s a beautiful time of year, with the colors changing and the weather becoming cool and brisk. It’s also the time of year that my birthday falls on AND when I met Kevin. We discussed getting married in the fall, but like any sucker of a bride, I eventually decided on a June wedding.
In any case, we were recently in Michigan in November and I had some opportunity to take pictures of the fall color.
I really dig taking pictures at night. I love taking advantage of single lights because it creates a dramatic feel to the image. I haven’t experimented much taking pictures with people, but I like half-lit images. They have that film-noir kind of feel.
Last but not least, a truly awful family photo. This is what happens when you have terrible light, you’re shooting at 1.4, and refuse to use your on-camera flash. Sometimes you should just use the pop-up flash! And sometimes, it’s more about just capturing the memory instead of trying to get everything perfect!
