What matters most in the Fall

The Fall season has always been marked with the changing of the leaf’s and the desire to capture that radiant energy from them. When we break down all that color it comes down to nothing more than the repetition of single leafs. While i was at Silver Lake i looked for a single leaf in different scenarios that would stand on its own. I found a few but there are still more to find.

I like most of you have seen many photographs of leafs either on the ground, against a rock, in the water or in some grass. It always intrigued me to find some a series of those images and put them together. One of the basic rules of photography is the rule of thirds, which states in every image must be a foreground, middle ground and background. Well often is a foreground that really sucks, like a rock, a stump a branch or who knows what else. A leaf though, just the leaf, can be pretty cool. Nothing more to the image than just that, a leaf in its element.
