10 tips for beginners to photograph fall foliage (part 1)

I do agree with George Eliot’s words: “Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns”…
Every season has its own beauty, but only autumn has so vivid, so amazing colors. You surely can find stunning compositions to capture and you will have so many opportunities that it could be difficult to choose the best. But it would be easier with a few tips of shooting autumn foliage. Read on and shoot.
1. Include footpaths into your forest compositions, because it can tell a story to your viewers. They will think: “It must be a beautiful place to take a nice walk!” or “Where does this path lead to?”

2.  Change your eye-level point to up high or down low and you will receive a new perspective.

3.    Capture mist and fog to receive beautiful, a bit mysterious images.

4.  Though red, yellow, orange, brown colors are very vivid, don’t ignore the green color. It will remind you of the summer and will emphasize other colors.

5. Don’t forget to shoot some close-up photos of individual leaves.
