Fall Colors

Great colors with orange, yellow and reds in the Northeast and into more yellow – golds in the west.  Time to explore and enjoy the seasons where ever you are.

  1. Use long exposures to shoot water or best waterfalls in the fall scenery. Use a small aperture (such as F/11 to F/22, remembering apertures are a fraction), Low ISO, polarizing filter and then a slow shutter speed (variable – need to test the results and adapt) to soften the water.

  2. Use long zoom lenses to isolate the leaves and colors. Use a tripod to stabilize.  If windy, remove lens hood to help. PumpkinsPumpkins
  3. Shallow Depth of Field - will help isolate your subject.  Fall ZenFall Zen
  4. Move your camera: while panning, racking focus, zooming in or out and during longer exposures. Fall MotionFall Motion
