Fall/Autumn EditionTime for my favorite thread theme of the year. The leaves are changing and the air is starting to feel cool and crisp. Feel free to post any pics that fit the theme, but please no drawings or paintings. Real photos only. Most of these photos were not taken by me. But a few were. Filenames with "OC" after the number are photos that I took.Link to the last thread, suburb theme >>7818341
thank you kind sir
>>7830811God, I would love to know where this is. My guess is some flyover country in the midwest. Indiana or southern Illinois.
>>7833405I would be willing to bet that its Ohio or one of the states bordering it
>>7833887Oligarch, you are such a genuine treasure to this board. Every thread you make is consistantly great. I really hope that you know how much you add to this place.Sadly Australia dosn't have much of a colour change in autumn, nevertheless here is my OC.
>>7830543great thread as always my dude, thanks.
>/comfy/ feeling intensifies
>>7834394every time I see nice brick streets I just get mad as hell at my home town for paving over oursfucking Boomers
>>7834654Eh. They look cool but they're not that fun to drive on.
>>7834656>They look cool but they're not that fun to drive on.We have one or two cobblestone roads in Wilmington, Delaware. They're a bitch to drive on. Feels like the whole car will shake apart.
any autumn imagery of streets dimly lit by sodium lights?
>>7834715why does the flame look like a face
Took this one at work today. Cranston, Rhode Island, US
What is it about this specific kind of photograph that makes it feel so warm and nostalgic or something? I don’t even know what the word to describe it is. I love this type of wallpaper but I really can’t articulate why. Anybody else?
>>7835961I think it's something about the combination of the right kind of lighting, a low depth-of-field focus, and the right amount of film grain that's very evocative of memory. And it's just easier to look at than the sharpness of a lot of digital photography.
>>7836615I love autumn so much
>>7833278Please post some dark moody ones if you have em
no offence OP but you really need to become more selective with your papers. most of these are unremarkable
>>7837821Absolute nonsense. This is the most dissociative and tasteful selection of media on the website. Do your highest memories look more like these images, or more like the 3D vaporwave renders you keep saving?
>>7838266He's right. OP's papers are utter trash. They feel like stock photos more than anything. They don't evoke the same emotional response as wallpapers that actually mean something to the poster do.
>>7838509I doubt he's trying to change your life with the power of the art displayed in the threadIt's a theme with a kind of specific mood, every thread can't be the best, but I don't see this one being worse either
>>7838509Not sure if you're aware of this or not but I actually took the picture that you just posted
wonderful thread & photography, thanks!
>>7838563Your photos are really good! I saved a bunch of them when you posted.
>>7838266>or more like the 3D vaporwave renders you keep saving?do you always make wild assumptions like this?
>>7833405Could be a southern state like NC. We have many places that look like that here.
>>7838805What camera do you use?
>>7838997It's an old Sony DSLR, from probably 2004 or 2005. Nothing special. But I use a Minolta lens from a film camera
more of a california fall but still
Aaaaaand done. The whole thread.Giving back some.
amazing. just sipping a beer and listening to some music and looking through all these pics.
snagged two, thanks oly
>>7837821they don't need to be incredible, just fit the theme
>>7830543took this one today
>>7841821Very nice gloom anon, I wish we still had as many red leaves up where I live, most of em have blown off at this point. But maybe there are more of them up if I head into a forest? Getting there is a lot of work thoughHaven't had time to look through the entire thread btw so sorry if I'm reposting
>>7838805Hey Oligarch bro, I bet you've answered this a million times but I was just wondering how you got in to photography in the first place? How long did it take you to get to the level you're at right now?I really like the idea of getting into photography but I'm not sure if it's a matter of practice or just something you're born with an eye for lel
>>7838256Do you remember what kinda music they were playing here? :)
>>7830809i can smell this picture
>>7835109this is the city of utrecht in the netherlands
>>7842041I got into photography just because I really like a certain type of photograph (the type I post in these threads) and at the time I lived in a very photogenic neighborhood in Richmond, Virginia and wanted to see if I could take these types of photos myself. btw that neighborhood is called "The Fan," seen here>>7834394My father in law had some old cameras sitting around that he no longer used (one digital, one analog) so he said I could have them and I just started taking photos and experimenting. I love shooting film but I just don't have the time/money/energy to commit to shooting exclusively film so I've worked on making my digital photos have the look of film. My pics aren't great but it's a fun hobby and now I live in NYC which also affords me a lot of opportunity for good pics.If you enjoy looking at these types of photos I'd encourage you to give photography a try. It's not really difficult. Part of the trick (if you're shooting digital anyway) is to just go out and take 600 photos in an afternoon and maybe you get 20 or so that are actually good and worth saving. But even when you don't have your camera with you I think you start to appreciate the little moments in everyday life that are photogenic and evoke a feeling.
>>7842043Jazz standards. In fact, right around then (maybe not exactly when I took that picture, idk) they were playing "Autumn In New York" the classic tune by Vernon Duke. Cheesy maybe, but on a nice fall day in Central Park with the colors so beautiful it's easy to buy into the romance of it.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CRhqw8Kjgec
>>7842054Okay, thanks, that's encouraging. Do you think phone cameras work alright given that I find a way to edit them until I can afford something better? I know absolutely fuck all about the technical stuff>>7842048Went there recently, that town and delft were my two favorite spots in that country. >>7842055Nice, I really like Tal Farlow's version of that one. Never heard the one you've posted before though, thanks for sharinghttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V3OF_9vJ4XISorry for going off-topic for this thread but here's a pape to compensate
>>7842186>Do you think phone cameras work alright given that I find a way to edit them until I can afford something better?Depends on what kind of pictures you want to take. If you just want to take nice, colorful photos, then sure. If you want to take the kind of pictures that I post in these threads then probably not. An important part of the pictures I post is that they are taken with a "low depth of field," essentially meaning - how much of the photograph's depth is in focus. It's what gives you that effect where the foreground is in focus and the background is tastefully "blurred." or vice versa. For that you need a camera where you can accurately control the depth of field. I think some phone cameras do have options for that, essentially its what "portrait mode" is. But then you also want a lens that you can use to manually change the area that is in focus. Most phones don't do that or only do an extremely basic version of that. I'd imagine you might be able to get a used camera that's workable for less than $100. I don't think I'd be able to sell my camera for any more than that. It's 15 years old.
>>7842351Alright, thanks for answering this question probably for the 200th time, I'll try doing my own research from here on out. Thanks Oligarchbro. If I do end up snapping some pics I like I'll let you know about it in one of these threads some day
>>7842186>Do you think phone cameras work alright given that I find a way to edit them until I can afford something better? I know absolutely fuck all about the technical stuffIf they're good pictures they're good pictures my man
>>7844062Last image from me for this thread. Next thread will be night theme.

>>7830543that thumbnail looks like a giant tarantula. Very uncomfy bruh
>>7845462Here, have a bigger version.
