1. Golden Hour
During autumn, the soft, warm light of golden hour is especially beautiful. Look for this light just after sunrise and before sunset. This soft, golden light combined with the incredible autumn colors can make for some exceptionally striking images.
2. Sunny Days
Of course, other lighting conditions can be great for shooting autumn landscapes too. On sunny days, the direct lighting will give you an increase of shadows, highlighting the texture of the landscape and adding depth and texture to an image. Bring along an ND filter for bright, sunny conditions to prevent blown out highlights and overexposure. On a clear day, you can also use a polarizer to reduce glare from the sun on the foliage and leaves.
