Autumn is considered by many photographers to be one of the most photogenic seasons – and for good reason. This season is brimming with bold colors and contrasts, and the landscape is completely transformed with fiery hues. The only downside is that the days are shorter, and the weather’s often dark and dismal – which means that there’s less time to capture it all.
Still, armed with a plan and perseverance, you’ll be able to capture this season in all of its beauty. Read on for some tips on making the most of this season and see how you can capture some striking autumn landscape images.
Know When to Go
Knowing when to go can help you to plan for sunrise or sunset – let you know how much daylight you’ll have to work with, and will give you the best options for weather. Since your window of time for shooting in autumn is shorter – thanks to shorter days, planning ahead will help you to capture the best shots.
Look for the Best Light
One of the best things about autumn is all of that rich, golden light. During autumn, the sun is at a lower angle for longer, and sunsets can be amazing. Golden hour, sunny days, and overcast conditions can all make for spectacular images, as long as you’re prepared to work with the light.
