A few fall photo taking tips from FamilyMemories:
- Morning is best! With the onslaught of smog in many populated areas, remember that morning is best when it comes to taking crisp and clear photos. Morning light tends to lend itself to helping capture those special moments in just the right mixture of light.
- Get to know your camera! You’ve often heard this or read this when purchasing a new camera. Take heed – it’s true. Remember your zoom and focus options. When taking pictures of fall foliage don’t forget the rain drop on a leaf and the waterfall you may stumble across.
- Remember that vantage point is everything! Try taking photos from different angles instead of the typical “straight on” approach. Lie on your stomach and take a photo of the leaves in front of you. Feeling athletic? Climb a tree! Vantage point in photography can mean the difference between a run of the mill photo and one that is near professional quality!
Enjoy your fall season! Happy picture taking from FamilyMemories!
