Photoessay: 20 Fall Foliage Photographs

Fall Again – Bountiful, UT – Fujifilm X100F

Autumn officially ended a little over two weeks ago. It was a good season for fall foliage photography, with plenty of opportunities to capture the autumn colors. The leaves began to change in September here in Utah, and the leaves were still colorful when I visited Seattle in late November.

This was my first year photographing the season of change using my Fujifilm X100F. The camera is a great all-around photography tool, and (no surprise) it did just fine capturing autumn leaves. For these photographs I used Velvia, Astia, Classic Chrome and “Vintage Kodochrome” film simulations.

The 20 photographs below are some of my favorites that I captured this last autumn. I obviously made a lot more images than these, but the ones below are what I decided to share, they’re the ones that I like best. Even though winter has fully taken hold, I hope you enjoy these fall foliage photographs, and perhaps the bright colors will bring you a little unexpected warmth today.

    Hello Ritchie,
    Interesting post and an important question: how to estimate which Pictures are good, how many Pictures to Keep (and how to keep them (as prints or as Jepegs or as raw files)). But is there really any reliable, objective way to determine if a picture is good? I really like these photographs: Golden Forest, Alpine Autumn, Yellow Bush & Red Berries, especially the last one, due to the nice colors. But that is totally subjective because colors are important for me if I see a Photograph. Others may lay more impotence to composition or lightning or the subject of the photograph. I remember an interview with HCB in which he said: light is not important, it is like a perfume. He was addicted to geometry and composition.
    Thank you for your nice and interesting blog!
    Christopher

      Thanks, Christopher, for your comment and your kind words! You pose some interesting questions, things I’ve considering for years and have never fully answered. I struggle with it, and I find myself keeping pictures that I probably shouldn’t have, not correctly estimating which are actually good. Most of my images remain as JPEGs and nothing more, which is kind of sad. I need to print more of them. Thanks again! —Ritchie
