Today’s featured photo of the day! October’s feature is: Fall Color/Landscapes

Here is today’s featured photo. For the month of October I am featuring fall color and landscapes photography as the style. For today, I am posting a wonderful photo of a nice and colorful autumn tree near sunset whereby backlighting is used to enhance the photo near Turtlehead Lake in the Cook County forest preserves near Palos Heights in Illinois. What a shot! Date – October 1982.

Sunset__Turtlehead Lake__Konica Color

Photo taken with a Nikon EM camera through a Nikon 26 mm lens, filter=polarizer, Aperture=11 f/stop, shutter-speed 1/30th second, loaded with Konica ISO (ASA) 100 Color 135-20 Negative Film processed with C-41 Processing Chemicals, and a Type C Print using the RA-4 enlargement paper process, onto a 4X6″ semi-gloss print.

TIP:  Backlighting can be tricky. I suggest taking more than one shot using more and less light per shot to get the true exposure the shot really needs to be perfect.

Enjoy, and see you tomorrow with another fine fall color and/or landscape photograph!!
