7 Fo­cus on the de­tails

Digital SLR Photography - - Autumn -

For most of us, au­tumn im­ages will be based around wide views that in­clude the over­flow­ing riches of auburn and bur­gundy that this sea­son of­fers, but don't dis­count the de­tails ei­ther. The au­tumn floor holds as much po­ten­tial as the trees, all you need to do is take a closer look. Leaves, with their in­tri­cate de­signs and sym­me­try, are in­ter­est­ing sub­jects all year round, but their colour­ful trans­for­ma­tion in au­tumn makes them par­tic­u­larly ap­peal­ing this time of year. Look for sub­jects in pris­tine con­di­tion, or find dry, curled spec­i­mens lit­ter­ing the ground. Any type of lens is suit­able, but you’ll find the ver­sa­til­ity of a stan­dard zoom with an ex­tended range, such as the NIKKOR AF- S 24- 85mm f/ 3.5- 4.5G ED VR will al­low for per­fect com­po­si­tions. A macro lens will al­low you to fo­cus even closer too, if you want to fill the frame with net­works of leaf veins or other au­tumn minia­tures, such as acorns, chest­nuts and fungi.
