Autumn is one of the most amazing seasons of the year. Photograph the leaves in their transition from apple to lemon, orange, raspberry, and chocolate. What a tasty season. Autumn pictures and pictures of fall leaves are colorful fun.
Autumn (Fall) Photography - Capturing Colours
.1. Use a Polarising Filter - the saturation of colours that you get with one of these is fantastic. It is particularly useful in getting lovely blue skies but you’ll find that it decreases some of the haze that you often get at this time of year also.
2. Shoot in the Golden Hours - while you can get great results at any time of the day - I love shooting Autumn colours at the end of the day just before sunset when the light is golden. This accentuates the reds and golds even more than normal.
3. Don’t ignore the Overcast Days - some people keep their cameras in their bags on days where the sun isn’t shining - but they can actually be the best days. I like overcast days because they help create a mood that you can’t get on a sunny day - plus the images are nice generally nice and rich.
4. Look for Contrasts - one way to accentuate the colours in your shots is to think about framing your shots in such a way that the different colours contrast with one another. Golden leaves on a blue sky - a red leave on a lush green grass etc.
5. Avoid Shooting Into the Sun - shooting into the sun will result in shadows, lower saturation of colours and lens flare (which further reduces the impact of colours. On Sunny days - keep the sun at your back. If you do have to shoot into the sun use a lens hood or shield your lens with something to avoid lens flare.
6. Play with White Balance Settings - sometimes Auto mode with White Balance won’t give you the most vibrant results. Warm up your colours by increasing the colour temperature a touch (not too much). You can do this by increasing the kelvin numbers or by selecting a setting like ‘cloudy’ if your camera has semi-auto settings. Read more on White Balance here and here.
7. Warm Up Filters - I don’t use these anymore (I tend to make changes in Photoshop) but in my Film Camera days I did use a warm up filter on occasion to give my shots a slightly warmer glow.
8. Underexpose Your Shots (slightly) - pull back the exposure on your shots a touch and you’ll find that it gives your colours a slightly deeper saturation.
