Fall Foliage East and West with Jerry Monkman and G. Dan Mitchell: The B&H Photography Podcast

10/06/2022Link0

It's leaf-peeping time in the northern hemisphere, when trees break into riots of color as autumn plows a path from north to south. Two of the best regions for capturing the show here in the US are across New England and along California's magnificent Sierra Nevada. To help get you up to speed when preparing for your own foliage excursions, we speak with landscape photography specialists in each of these regions—Jerry Monkman, in New England, and G. Dan Mitchell, in California's Sierra Nevada.

After weighing in with informed opinions about when and where to find the best color this year, Monkman and Mitchell suggest fresh ways to picture the scenery and discuss topographic and geological differences between the east and west. We also talk gear—both DSLR and mirrorless—with Monkman opting for the Canon 5D Mark IV or EOS R5, and Mitchell alternating between the Canon 5DS R and FUJIFILM X series mirrorless.
