It's one of the favourite times of the year for so many photographers for a good reason - Autumn provides a rich tapestry of colour, contrast and moody mist and fog in early morning light. Whether you're a photographer that likes the big vista or details of a close-up there is something for everyone in Autumn.
This month's mentoring assignment therefore challenged those subscribed to the program to get out and capture the essence of Autumn in whatever way it resonated with them. As usual I received a varied range of images depicting bonfires, fireworks and autumnal colour in various forms.
The following shots caught my eye for different reasons and demonstrate that even with a small compact point and shoot cameras you can still achieve some great results as some of these pictures show.
Well done to all you for taking up the challenge and having a go even when the subject matter may not be to your taste and style, and the weather is harder to be out in for long periods.
If you are inspired and want to join in these monthly assignments then feel free to email or phone me for a chat about what's involved. You can be based anywhere in the world to participate as everything is done through email and Dropbox so the only barrier to getting involved is you. At just £20 a month you could be on your way to your first assignment with the prospect of an honest but supportive critique at the end on your images.
