Well, it’s autumn, one of the busiest times of the year for photographers. There’s a rush for the mountains, the vivid and changing color being the photographic equivalent of a gold strike for family portraiture. I see this every year and it still never ceases to amaze and take my breath away! Blazing oranges, flaming reds, yellows that you would swear still glow after the sun has set! The mountainside seems to be caught in a perpetual fire where the air is crisp, clean and redolent with the smells of cedar, pine and earth. Ahh, I love the fall and how quickly the resplendent color fades to brown, dulling the landscape and preparing the way for glistening snow.
Over the weekend, I myself had a family shoot, my good friend Shamber and her delightful family, with three more scheduled this week and Saturday and I was also able to shoot my first concert, Royal Bliss, albeit unofficially. I loved the concert but will need different lenses if I start shooting those events more frequently. I was thrilled to be able to watch them perform! I’ve been a fan for a long time!
Anyway, here’s to the beauty of autumn, family getting together under any circumstances, good music and great friends!
