The autumn colors are the most beautiful and this year I could not miss the opportunity to photograph them in this month of November. For this reason I went to this beech forest which is about 1000 meters high which in this month offers the best colors

Regarding this time of year, I wrote a guide called how to photograph the beauty of autumn colors, very useful for shooting in situations like this during autumn, the main advices for this are to use a polarizer lens, use the correct lens and set the correct white balance

In this series I was lucky enough to find beautiful lights filtering through the trees and their leaves. In this magical place I will soon organize a workshop, starting next year in addition to this location there are many other places to explore in the area that deserve to be visited and photographed


I edited all the shots in the same way, using the same processing. This time i don’t used luminosity masks for exposure blend because all the shots was single exposures but I managed all the images with luminosity masks to increase/decrease luminosity, contrasts etc…

I added a warm light on the highlights, I added a soft orton effect to create a dreamy feel in the wood, also added details to better enhance foliage beauty on the wood. In all the images I pushed up autumn colors using my panel TTS Pro, that has a effect specifically for this

As last step added a soft vignette in all my shot to enhance the mood of the wood and create more atmosphere in all the shots

I hope you will find this usefull. I like to ear this from you!
