Taking Fab Fall Photographs: What to Capture

I recently read some great tips on taking fall photographs over at PhotoJojo, and had to pass the tips along. Here are some suggestions for what to photograph this season.

  • Take leafy portraits. While you’re busy raking those leaves up in the backyard, don’t forget the leaf fights, leaf forts, leaf heaps… they’re fun and the spontaneity will give you opportunity for dynamic portraits.
  • Some seasons only give you a few possibilities for how to frame your shots outdoors—not so with fall! Get up close for detailed leaf shots, or take a step back and take in a technicolor landscape. There’s so much change come fall that the only thing you need do is look around you (or look up!).
  • Too windy to get those up-close macro shots of leaves? Try bringing some leaves home. With some good ol’ Scotch tape, stick the stem to a large open window that has some natural light coming through it, so that the leaf lies flat against the window. Now set up your camera and start snapping. Voila, brilliant leaf close-ups!
  • Capture a tree-changing time-lapse. Try taking a photo of the same tree, from the same spot, once every day for the next month. Take the shot around the same time every day if you can, and watch as the tree slowly transforms before your eyes.
  • Leaves and trees aren’t the only thing to photograph in the Fall. Visit a farmer’s market and snap some of the beautiful colors and shapes of Fall fruits and veggies. Go apple-picking or stop by the pumpkin patch.

What are you taking photos of this autumn?

I really want to take pictures this fall. I'm originally from So. Cal, but I chose to go to school in Arkansas, and they actually have seasons! :-D So, maybe this year I'll finally do it. Here's another tip: Take your camera where ever you go so that if there's a perfect shot you won't miss it!
