Autumn Returning

This is a gallery of autumn foliage photographs. All are real photos. The only "trick" I've used is camera motion commbined with a slow shutter speed. The result is not the usual objective reality we are accustomed to viewing in still photographs where details are often riveted with precision. Instead, using this technique I'm able to create images that evoke the emotional sense of a scene rather than describing its specific details. Photography is based on capturing light, and by doing this slowly I allow the points of light and pieces of color within each scene to become sweeping lines directed by my movements to emulate a painter's brush strokes.
