think of autumn, you first think of colorful leaves, golden October and
all the other beautiful images that you might associate with this
season. The fact that autumn has a much wider range, is first of all
secondary. I felt the same as many of you! If still the acquaintance
with the first reflex camera and the picture creation on one flows, the
mountain, which one would like to climb gladly, is nevertheless
At the beginning, it was easier for me to deal only with the exposure programs "aperture priority
" or "shutter priority
and the image composition. So I could approach the photographic
learning process a little more relaxed! Only gradually did manual
photography become interesting for me. But even today, these
(semi-)automatic programs are still used with pleasure, especially when
I move on unfamiliar terrain. Besides the pure creation of these
photographs, the editing of photos also plays a certain role. But on
the whole it's more about optimizing colors, contrasts, image details
or the occasional retouching of disturbing small details. An elaborate
image change takes place only very rarely with me!
If there are then still experienced professionals and amateurs, who bring the photographic topic "autumn photos"
closer, then everything is nevertheless in the green range. You don't
even need to know them personally. An internet access is even
sufficient here! And if one is already there, one can be inspired also still equal by autumnal photos
For me, it has led to the fact that I now prefer the melancholy moments
of the autumn blues to the ever-popular colorful motifs. No matter how
each of us ticks, autumn probably offers most of us wonderful hours
with our own camera in hand.
Ambitions, the best photographer of all time to want to become, I have
not ever! Rather, I just want to make pictures that reflect the theme
of "autumn". And that as good as they have been possible for me at the
time. It is self-explanatory that people without a certain photographic
background (I am one of them!
people with a private photographic environment or people with 10, 15,
20 or more years of photographic experience will never be on the same
level of development. Even if this is faded out gladly once, only in
order to be able to stand a little better.
In contrast to some other online exhibitions on my page, this photo
collection is now arranged chronologically according to its origin. So
you have a little bit also the opportunity to look at my changes in
terms of autumnal motifs and my photography. Take your time and decide
what you like here or what you would rather have done differently. The
latter you may not express publicly in the gallery, but you may
implement it specifically in your own photos. And exactly this is the
thought, which I would like to pursue with such a procedure here!
Not perfect and better, but only different and more satisfied!
