Autumn or fall is the best time of the year to capture different colors in a photo. The number of shades of the same color you get in fall you will not get in any other season. So do not wait and waste time but grab your camera and start shooting. Keep in mind the following tips and your day will be made.

Fall photo in Twilight

Photograph during early hours and evening – Twilight and Sunset are the best time to unravel the colors in a different way. Fall photography in twilight really gives amazing photos. You can see the array of colors in the picture above. You will never get so many colors other than twilight.

Late Afternoon Fall

A very good tip is photograph outdoors in fall when your shadow is longer than your actual height. This is late afternoon when the light is best for capturing the light and shade.

Fall Overcast Photo

The mistake people do is that they will not go out to take a photo when it is overcast. I have shot some amazing photos in overcast conditions.

Tripod

Always use a tripod while shooting in fall. This is the time when light changes very quickly. A steady tripod helps to shoot photos which are always better.

Go ahead and make this autumn/fall your own by capturing moments which you can cherish later.Here is one video to guide you.

  • Caring for equipment – Different equipment require different care in Winters. For instance the Camera needs to be cold at the temperature you will be shooting to avoid fogging of lenses. The batteries should be kept warm inside your coat pocket to avoid draining quickly.
  • RAW Format of shoot – The best results that you will get is in the RAW format of shoot.This will help in easy editing after the shoot.
  • Using Manual Mode of the Camera – Use the manual mode to capture the bright snow which reflects light. Auto mode will give darker pictures.
  • Add color to photos – Winter is a black and white season and when you take the pictures remember to add color.

  • Shoot for 30 minutes – From the first rays to full on sunrise the span is roughly 30 minutes. Keep clicking all the time. You do not have to worry about space with modern cameras.
