Fabulous Fall Photography: Leaf Peeping Tips & Destinations

Autumn, the most magical of times for outdoor photography.

Location, they say, is everything…yet sometimes you can capture the most perfect image just outside your front door when the light hits just right. And it’s not just foliage that makes fall photography so special. Use water as a source of inspiration. Rivers and ponds can create a surrealistic reflection. Consider photographing local scenery, the side of a barn at sunset, a pumpkin patch at dawn, the first frost. Include people in your photos for interest, kick up a leaf pile to create motion, and don’t forget that bounty of colorful seasonal fruits and vegetables. Vary the lighting. A beautiful single leaf with a sunlit background can make a stunning statement.

Whether a beginner using your phone camera, a seasoned professional, or anywhere in between, there is endless inspiration to be had in the most colorful and inspiring of seasons! Happy leaf peeping.

Design is the single most important factor in creating a successful photograph. The ability to see the potential for a strong picture and then organize the graphic elements into an effective, compelling composition has always been one of the key skills in making photographs. Digital photography has brought a new, exciting aspect to design – first because the instant feedback from a digital camera allows immediate appraisal and improvement; and second because image-editing tools make it possible to alter and enhance the design after the shutter has been pressed. This has had a profound effect on the way digital photographers take pictures. Now published in sixteen languages, The Photographer’s Eye continues to speak to photographers everywhere.
