Every season brings about something wonderful. I'd like to share a few photo ideas to prompt you to take seasonal pictures--in hopes that it will inspire you in some way...
1. Take a photo of your doorway, from outside your home. If you have a willing participant, shoot someone coming or going from your home.
2. Photograph the turning leaves or your garden in the fall. Instead of your typical point of view, stand right next to the trunk of a tree and look straight up and take the shot.
3. Photograph pumpkins, apples, or gourds. They are beautiful and so unique!
4. Photograph your sweaters folded in a stack, or the place where you hang your seasonal jacket.
5. Since soccer and football are fall favorites, be sure to take a few of those photos.
6. Snap a few photos of your favorite Halloween decorations--even if they don't belong to you! There is a house in our neighborhood that always goes the extra mile--and I am going to photograph them on Halloween this year.
7. Take a close-up of Halloween candy.
8. Photograph pie, chili, soup--comfort food that is good on a chilly day. If not the food itself, photograph your recipe books!
9. Photograph tulip bulbs, the raking of leaves, or your outdoor tools.
10. Sit your children in a pumpkin patch and keep snapping away. Go on a hayride and play!!
The above photographs of my own family are screaming to be scrapped and I can't wait to dig in! I plan on journaling directly onto the main photograph in the above 12x12 layout with a marker, and using simple embellishments for a small bit of interest, and that is IT.
Do you have any special fall tradition or seasonal photo tip you'd like to share? I'd love to hear it!
ETA--I took the photos myself using my Canon and my 50mm 1.4 lens. I did the post processessing, uploaded them to Costco and had them printed in 12x12 format.
Have a wonderful day!
