You Capture – Autumn

28 Oct

This week was a great chance to test out my new camera.  And the “nifty fifty”.  Ohhhhh the bokeh.  Creamy creamy bokeh.  I’d never shot anything that could drop to anything less than an f4.5 so the f1.8….glorious!  And running on all manual mode (SO MUCH EASIER ON CANONS) was fun too!


The lush green fields that follow


Brightly colored leaves on the trees


And brightly colored leaves on the ground


Tangled naked branches


Fallen acorns


And pigtails with coats.


What is in your autumn?

    Beautiful! I LOVE these 🙂 Did you get a new camera or lense?

      Thank you! And both, actually. I am the proud owner of a (new to me) Canon 40D and 50mm f1.8. My very own. Now I don’t need to borrow/steal my dad’s Nikon anymore. It’s a lovely feeling!

    Beautiful photos! The photos I took for this challenge were done with a Canon xTi, and with my NEW 50mm f1.8 as well. I love it!

      Thank you!

      And if you don’t have one, I highly recommend a 50mm, of any f stop!

    Congrats on the new toys! Isn’t that 50 so much fun to play with?! The pics look great.

      Thank you! It’s SO much fun. I mean, the bokeh alone is so worth it!

    Great shots! I took some fun shots of girls in the leaves with my 60, but still haven’t had time to post them. Maybe I’ll at least put them on FB today.

      Thank you! Can’t wait to see them!
