The 30 Day November Aesthetic Photo Challenge is a fun way to take photographs and enjoy some of the gifts this month offers.
What is November Aesthetic?
According to merriam-webster.com, the word aesthetic means, “A particular theory or conception of beauty or art: a particular taste for or approach to what is pleasing to the senses and especially sight.” A November aesthetic is a seasonal gift.

“November is the pearl-grey month, the changeling between warm crimson October and cold white December, the month when the leaves fall in slow drifting whirls, and the shapes of the trees are revealed, when the earth imperceptibly wakes, and stretches her bare limbs and displays her stubborn unconquerable strength before she settles uneasily into winter. November is secret and silent.”Alison Uttley
Here’s the 30 Day November Aesthetic Photo Challenge
November 1st Aesthetic – Still Life of Fall Fruit
This photo of fall fruit shows off the rustic look with the rough wooden surface and dark plates used.
Pears, apples, and pomegranates are used in the photo. Leaves scattered underneath the fruit are accents to the dishes.
Find your favorite autumn fruit and create a November aesthetic harvest photo.
November 2nd Aesthetic – Stacked Wood
When the chilly nights start, stacked wood is a welcomed sight to see.
You can photograph a large woodpile outside or a smaller one next to the fireplace.
November 3rd Aesthetic – A Cozy Nook
Find a cozy nook that begs to be documented.
If you already have a comfortable chair tucked away in the corner of your home, use it in your November aesthetic photo.
November 4th Aesthetic – Fall Artwork
Take a photo of art that reflects the autumn season.
You can either make it yourself or take a picture of someone else’s work.
November 5th Aesthetic – Canopy of Trees
Find a canopy of trees that showcase the vibrant leaves of fall. Try to get at least one picture with you under the trees.
I love this picture of the girl looking at the trees with her back to the photo.
November 6th Aesthetic – Pile of Pumpkins
Stacks of pumpkins are everywhere this time of year.
You can photograph the piles with various shapes or colors or a mound with the same colored pumpkin.
They both turn out beautiful.
November 7th Aesthetic – Fall Shoes in Leaves
Take a picture of your favorite hiking boots, leather boots, or other fall shoes in a blanket of leaves.
November 8th Aesthetic – Golden Leaves
Find a tree with golden leaves. Get a close-up picture of the details of the leaves.
November 9th Aesthetic – Autumn Bridge
The best bridge to get a photo of is a covered bridge, but any bridge will do with fall color if you don’t have one.
November 10th Aesthetic – Fall Morning Still Life
There’s something about the early mornings of autumn that are simply magical.
Put together items that give the nod to the fall season and take a still life photo.
November 11th Aesthetic – Veterans Day
Today is Veterans Day. The “eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month” of 1918 was the end of World War 1.
A picture of something that gives thanks to our amazing veterans would make the perfect tribute.
November 12th Aesthetic – Acorns
My little squirrel friends love their acorns. If you take a close-up view of everything in nature, there’s such beauty in every detail.
Acorns are the perfect November aesthetic to use in your photoshoot.
A bowl of acorns makes as beautiful a picture as a photo of acorns on a forest floor.
November 13th Aesthetic – Fall Palette
The aesthetic palette of fall is dreamy. Put together the different hues and take a photo.
November 14th Aesthetic – Apples
Apples and autumn go hand-in-hand.
November is the perfect month to visit an apple orchard and capture the beauty of this fantastic fruit.
November 15th Aesthetic – Hot Beverage
Your favorite hot beverage surrounded by accents of fall on a rustic surface makes a beautiful picture.
You can find rustic pottery mugs at any thrift store. That’s where I found my large collection of mugs.
November 16th Aesthetic – National Button Day
Did you know November 16th is National Button Day? Now you do.
The detail of vintage buttons is mini works-of-art.
November 17th Aesthetic – Fireplace
We warm ourselves and our souls with the beauty of a roaring fire.
Find the best fireplace that fits with a November day for your picture.
Some ideas on where you can find quaint fireplaces are bed-and-breakfasts, quirky hotels, restaurants in old buildings, and even your friend’s homes will work.
November 18th Aesthetic – Crochet
Something that has been made with love is today’s photo.
Crocheted blankets give a home a homemade touch that welcomes all to warm themselves on a brisk November day.
November 19th Aesthetic – Loaf of Bread
A freshly baked loaf of bread makes my heart go pitter-patter.
Loaves of bread are a beautiful sight to behold. The more rustic-looking the bread is, the better the photo.
November 20th Aesthetic – Football
Football season is here. Take a photo of something football-related, even if it’s the snacks you made to watch the game.
November 21st Aesthetic – Haystacks
Bales of hay in an open field make gorgeous photos.
If you want to capture a beautiful image, take the picture at dusk.
November 22nd Aesthetic – Topaz Stone
The birthstone for November is the topaz.
Finding a topaz gem will be a fun hunt to go on. You can also take a picture of a faux topaz that can be found on costume jewelry.
November 23rd Aesthetic – Fall Dessert
Cookies, pies, and cakes are just some of the ideas you can make for your fall dessert photo.
Make sure you pick a dessert that stars the bounty of November.
November 24th Aesthetic – Fall Soups
What’s your favorite fall soup? Mine is Hungarian Mushroom soup. It is to-die-for.
Adding rustic elements like bread, cutting boards, and fresh herbs will make your photo even more appealing.
November 25th Aesthetic – Turkey
Finding a wild turkey in your area might pose a challenge. Do you know someone that has a pet turkey?
You can also photograph a roasted turkey.
November 26th Aesthetic – Beeswax Candles
The warm appeal of beeswax candles reminds me of fall. Their mustard color is beautiful whether or not they have a flame.
November 27th Aesthetic – Chrysanthemums
Chrysanthemums come in a wide variety of colors that reflect the autumn season. They are the flower of November.
November 28th Aesthetic – Caramel Apples
Have you ever tried making homemade caramel apples?
The combination of apples, caramel, and chopped nuts is the perfect fall treat to satisfy your taste buds.
November 29th Aesthetic – Fall Berries
These simple autumn berries are so beautiful when paired with the foliage of the season.
You can take your photo out in nature or create an arrangement in your home with the berries as the star of the bouquet.
November 30th Aesthetic – Fox
Now I know getting a picture of a real fox is highly unlikely, but it is easy to get a picture of something with a fox displayed on the item.
