Yellow Russian Forest
Autumn comes into its own. Now it is already getting cool at night and during the day the temperature does not rise above 15 degrees Celsius.
The leaf green gradually turns to yellow-orange. If the sun is shining on the street, and this does not happen often in recent days, I want to run to the street with a camera and photograph the yellow-blue gamut of foliage and sky.
The biggest problem with this is getting a decent result. When you are in nature, everything around is so beautiful. In photographs, everything can turn out so well. It really depends on the skills and talent of the photographer. I especially can not boast of these qualities, but I still want to try to convey the beauty of Russian autumn.
When I arrived in the forest and all this beauty with yellow-orange foliage opened in front of me, I wondered how to convey this whole real world in photography. This is a difficult question, because if I chase after the details, I will lose the big picture, if I do the general views, I will lose the beauty of the details.
One of the options that seemed interesting to me was the creation of panoramas. In doing so, I embrace the general view and do not lose details. True, in this case it is important to take large format photographs. So that the photo would be more than a meter wide. That it would be possible to approach and examine the details. This is real realism. But probably this is not art.
The art is to convey details through color and some general form. So in the painting of the impressionists. Opponent colors, color contrasts. When I see strokes of paint instead of photography, blue, yellow, green ....
I would like to speculate on the theme of the art of painting and photography. Still, photography is one of the subsections of painting. Photography has realism, which was valuable in painting at the beginning of the 19th century. Today, painting sets itself other tasks and realism is available in photography. But the photographer needs not just to fix reality. The photographer needs to create a sense of the real scene.
