Valuable Tips for Autumn Photography

Autumn is a season that provides a golden opportunity to take beautiful shots in varied colors. And what else could be the perfect subjects for your photos? The autumn leaves, trees, and amazing landscapes. You don’t necessarily need to have a DSLR camera, because even with a slim pocket camera to carry everywhere you can get great results with all the colors happening in nature this time of year.

Time of Day

If you want drama in your photos, the best times of day to shoot are during sunrise and sunset. It is during these times that the light has a golden color cast on your subjects.

Subjects

For your autumn photography, the best subjects to take are those that have attractive light. Your subject can be the trees, the leaves that have fallen on the ground, a bird, or a flower.

If you’re shooting landscapes, experts recommend composing your images so that they have a great impact on your viewers. If you can, include a foreground, middle ground, and background.

For those who fancy taking close-up shots or macro images, look for subjects that have varied colors and have unique textures.

Fruits, flowers, trees bearing fruits, and plants are great subjects.

Play with Colors

If you’re fond of experimenting with colors, you can use contrasting hues in your images.

For example, you can take shots of trees with their colorful yellow-orange leaves against a blue sky or a close-up shot of a purple flower against a grassy background.

Go Low

Most people are used to taking pictures while standing. How about if you go down low and take your images from the ground? This is known as the worm’s eye view.

You will be surprised to see the unique impact your images have.

Go Macro

Macro refers to taking shots of your subjects at a closer range. In photography terms, it is filling the frame with smaller subjects. But no matter how small they may be, they become alive and larger than life when you print out the photos, allowing you to see all the intricate details. When you take macro photos, make sure you set your compact digital camera to the right setting. It is usually indicated by a flower icon, on point and shoot cameras anyway. You might also need a tripod to keep your camera steady while you’re shooting. Don’t be afraid to get very low to the ground. This will allow you to take photos from different angles.

Speed

Be wary of your shutter speed. To prevent blurry images, you will have to set your shutter at a fast speed, particularly when you’re shooting during windy weather. Taking photos of nature in autumn can be a fun experience, especially if you’re just starting out with your photography hobby. There are so many subjects to consider, but make sure to use your creativity when shooting. A steady hand, a good subject and a little imagination can go a long way in capturing lovely photos to be proud of.
