Autumn and early winter are probably my favourite times of year for photography, which is hardly surprising as it means glorious light available at readily accessible times of the day, as well as trees displaying a wonderful variety of colours.
It’s also wetter, naturally, and this is good for urban photography. It’s a common filmmaker trick to douse an urban scene in water, especially if shooting at night, as it really livens up things like roads and pavements.
Damp air means dew, too, another reason to get up early and go shooting.
And of course, there’s more frequent fog, which makes even dull, familiar places look new and exciting.
Even if the weather’s dry, the low winter sun can liven up street scenes with stong contrast and long, deep shadows.
Alternatively, overcast days can work well with the more industrial kinds of places.
And what backlog post would be complete without a picture of Emily?
