Tanya in Fall Colours (Riverview, Nova Scotia)

For whatever reason, I've never made the most of the colourful fall foliage we have in eastern Canada; a combination of an inevitably busy schedule, cooler weather, and  the usual challenges of working with the Nude have always conspired to against the process.

For this session, however, I managed to overcome every issue; I was in Moncton to teach a workshop, and had made plans ahead of time to spend an afternoon working with Tanya in the woods near Riverview, south of Moncton.

As is my tendency when working with Tanya, much of the session focused on portraiture, though often overlayed with fall colour and brilliant foliage. There is no way I could have made this work  five years ago, before I began working with digital cameras, as so much of it focused on the colours of the leaves around Tanya (the obvious exception of course if the portrait above).

In the end, though the session was focused on working with the Nude and fall colours, it turned out we were a little early for the best colour of the year, and only found a handful of trees with really rich colours. These I focused on specifically, and made a number of variations on the theme of combining the Nude with fall colours.
