Every Fall one of our favorite things to do as a family is go to the apple orchard. If you live in a cooler climate, you most likely know what I mean… I love the smells of fresh cider, hot cinnamon donuts, and pumpkins. The colors are so rich and vibrant. The apples so crisp. Everything about Fall, from Halloween, to my birthday the day before, is just great. I’d love to see what you love most about Fall too. Photography? The colors? The smells? What do you love about it? Just upload your Fall photos to my Facebook Wall or to the comment section here to share. If you used any MCP Photoshop actions, please share which you used.
Here are a few snapshots I took quickly of Ellie and Jenna. I am sure I will be taking more soon. Note Jenna with the tie… It brings back memories of when I was in 7th grade and wore a tie for my class pictures. I guess girls wear ties is back in style only this time paired with Madonna-esque 80s style leggings … And Ellie… She just looks so grown up to me in these shots. Remember to take pictures of your kids. Don’t be “that photographer” that just takes pictures of everyone else… Back to the photography side of things. These images were shot with my Canon 5D MKII with the 24-105L. I chose this lens because I did not want to carry a camera bag, and did not know what I’d want to shoot there – I just wanted versatility. I shot at 4.0, which is the widest this lens goes. The photos were all natural light, most at ISO 400 and 1/250, as it was actually bright yet cloudy. As for actions, I just used my Big Batch Action in Autoloader (mainly made of Color Burst from the Complete Workflow and a few things from the Bag of Tricks. Hope that info helps.
