Photography Tips for Fall Foliage
Fall begins on Sept. 22, and it wonâ€™t be long before plants are displaying brilliant fall colors. Use these tips to get yourself and your gear ready for the fall color season.
Fall is a terrific time to be out taking photographs. The forests light up with brilliant, eye-catching colors. Getting a photograph that stands out from the crowd isn't as easy, though. You and your gear have to be ready, and that means doing some preparation work before the colors start to turn. Here are some tips that will help you get an outstanding fall-color photograph.
Get out there!
Finding a good vantage point for fall photographs is half the battle. You're going to have to get out into the woods and wild spaces and look for spots that have potential. Strap on your hiking boots and hit the trails! A GPS unit, if you have one, is helpful for finding your way back to promising spots. Scouting will also help you tone up for some energetic hiking when the fall colors do come and you need to hit as many spots as possible before the leaves begin to fall.
Plan your trips
Early and late day sunlight is ideal for catching fall colors. These times of day, often referred to as the "golden hours," will enhance the colors of the foliage with warm, soft light. Of course a colorful sky doesn't hurt either. Plan ahead, and allow plenty of time to travel to your spot and set up before you expect to take pictures. The light changes quickly, and you'll need to be on your toes to catch it when it's at its best.
Pack your gear
There's nothing worse than having a beautiful scene in front of you, and discovering that you don't have the gear to get the shot. A backpack (ideally one with a weather cover) is great for carrying your stuff, loaded with your camera, a selection of lenses, a cable release, and a sturdy tripod. Don't forget extra batteries and memory cards or film. Lastly, consider a monopod, which is great as a hiking stick in addition to providing a steady platform for your camera.
Know your camera
Many digital cameras have special modes that can improve your images, such as a foliage mode that will enhance colors. This can be a real boon if the light is not so great and the colors in your photograph seem a bit dull, for example if the day is overcast. The better you know your camera, the better your pictures will be, so take some time to review that manual before you head out.
