Greenish Autumn Foliage Cheating

 Having a Fall foliage autumn that's too greenish?

Yeah! I hate that too! 2012 & 2011 were like that!

Why bother doing it in Photoshop, when you could do a simple easy way to cheat on your photos that's LOW-TECH and CHEAP?!
 The trick is a gradient filter. You can usually buy them in blue or orange. They wee originally for film cameras, but you can still buy them VERY CHEAP on Amazon.com!

I think I paid a few dollars for each one. Vintage are better, if you can. Don't fret if the filter is a different size than your lens. You can just get an adapter for like $1-2!







The gradient filter is great because you can swivel them, and get a more organic look!

You can see the real colors fade into the more saturated reds.

Or, if it's a cloudy day, you can make it look brighter, sunnier, or like a sunset.

It's nice to mess around with!

I've also used them for stage/show events.

And, they can also be used with black & white, if you want some colors to show more than others in the grays cale tones, like the sky.

Autumn Tree Tops 2012

Autumn 2012 was a a rather disappointing year for Fall foliage in New England, because it was MOSTLY green, rained and knocked several leaves off just as they were turning, very erratic weather patterns.

It was also a generally warm autumn.

The 1 place that could have some colors, other than GREEN & YELLOW was the Colonial Graveyard near my home. You could actually find ORANGE....

You can't always see good colors up in New England, but some years are utterly amazing! The past 2 years weren't.



 No filters on these frames. I was experimenting with a wide angle fisheye.
*shrugs*

Hey, ya never know until you try.

Mostly just focusing on the tree tops with minimal background in the composition.
And, I was experimenting with a Dutch Tilt.




Macro stuffs... mostly just sticking with the presets....
*shrugs* -everyone seems to like these....

























A bit more Orange:

Greenish New England October Foliage




Kind of a disappointing  Autumn foliage this year. Too greenish, and too much tropical rain storms.

Very greenish.

I photographed these in a park at the border of Braintree & Weymouth, against my better judgement. Wasn't my idea. I KNEW is would be too green!
