One of the most anticipated seasons of the year, Autumn is like a playground for photographers of every level who want to capture the magic Mother Nature creates. With changes to the scenery and weather that offer a moody shooting environment, there are so many ways to capture the beauty of this unique season. I’m sharing my 4 essential photos to take this Autumn.
I’m so excited to introduce you to my friend, Gina Yeo, a Canadian mama, photographer and landscape photography expert. She hosts an amazing Landscape Retreat in the Rocky Mountains where she teaches everything you’d ever want to know about expertly capturing beautiful landscape images. Gina’s just as passionate as I am about capturing precious everyday childhood moments, and she’s sharing her fabulous guide, Autumn is Awesome, right here just for you! Be sure to download it from the link, as I have no doubt it will leave you feeling even more inspired.
The first thing that comes to mind when most people think of Autumn is the leaves changing color. There are so many hues of yellow, orange, red and brown. The way leaves become semi-transparent allows light to filter through them in a beautiful way that only happens in the Autumn. No matter what camera you have, taking photos of those beautiful earth tones is a must.
Changing weather offers a new perspective of the changing season. Rainy Autumn days can accentuate colors and offer a beautiful textured backdrop.
With the sun rising later and setting earlier, it can make it easier to take advantage of golden hour light. And that golden light looks even more beautiful filtered through changing leaves. It’s the perfect combination for capturing the most vibrant spectrum of Autumn’s color palate.
What is Autumn without pumpkins? There are so many fun ways to include pumpkins in your images, weather they’re carved yet or not! And don’t feel limited to capturing just the orange variety. The gourds look so beautiful in green and white, too!
I hope these 4 essential Autumn photo ideas inspire you to capture the joy of the season. Make sure you grab the guide by my talented friend, Gina, which has tons more tips for making the most of your Autumn captures!
