Autumn Photography Tips

If you need some inspiration, here are a few golden rules for you to think about when you're out with your camera this Autumn.


Landscape or Close-up?

Don't over-plan your photography trip. If you go out intending to photograph landscapes and the light isn't right for the scene you had in mind, look for some close-up shots instead - you're sure to be surrounded by subjects like this dandelion head photographed by Wendy Rowe.

Light and Atmosphere

It's often the light, not the location, that makes a stunning scene.

Do Your Gardening!

Remember to tidy away dead leaves and twigs that might spoil your shot, and avoid a messy background so that your subject really stands out.


Simple Colour Palette

Don't confuse the eye with too many colours in your images, simple is often best.

Look for Reflections

Take advantage of still days to capture stunning reflections. There is often less wind late in the day.
