Autumn as a fact. Part 1


Reportage photography implies the choice of a method of capturing and presenting an event. That is, if I want to talk about autumn in general, then I must choose a genre with which I can tell about autumn. Yes, it sounds strange, but such is the reportage photography.

Before starting to shoot something, I asked myself the question "what is autumn?"

Autumn is primarily about yellow leaves!

And I began to shoot yellow leaves, and so directly and without any context that I had to resort to such directions as graphics and close-ups.

Autumn should be beautiful, so the plot should be understandable for everyone.

I also decided to use the method of photographing flowering vegetation that I had already studied in the spring.

Sometimes I had a slightly more realistic plot, but still it was as close as possible to the graphics, since it was made on a certain creative wave.

In autumn, the leaves can not only be yellow, so I looked for all possible colors.

We can say that the first post is just a warm-up in this topic about autumn.

And this is just the peak of the yellowing of various trees, which will then decline.

Different trees turn yellow/red in different ways, and the same tree in different years may have a different shade of foliage.

There are two interesting states in my opinion. First, when you need to find a prominent yellow/red tree among the green foliage.

The second condition is when these same yellow-red trees have to be looked for already among the bare, completely fallen trees.

I have not yet filmed this state of nature, since it is an abstract graphic, not a reportage one.

All these names of genres and styles of photography, I partly invented myself in relation to the generally accepted known.

And all subspecies, like abstract and reportage graphics, I subdivide on the basis of the difference in creative waves or frequencies at which they exist.

It's just that it's easier for me to navigate this variety of human states.
