Tips for capturing Autumn images

5 Must Take Autumn Images

Happy Autumn! It’s officially Fall! There are so many reasons to love Autumn. I can hardly count the ways this beautiful season captures my adoration. The cooler temperatures and the need for warm cozy sweaters, the fresh scent of foggy morning air, and the gorgeous colour begging to be photographed are a few of the reasons I love Autumn. I live in a climate where I’m fortunate if Autumn lasts beyond a couple of weeks. So you can bet that I’ll have a camera in hand and be out photographing all things Autumn before this season becomes covered up under a blanket of white snow.

Today I’m sharing my list of must capture Autumn images that I know you’ll want to incorporate into your fall images too!

1. Colour

My top priority when it comes to fall images is photographing the beautiful colour that occurs when the leaves change. There are so many different ways a photographer can incorporate Autumn colour into their images, and it’s super fun to get creative during Autumn. Don’t be afraid to think outside the norm and get creative with colour!

2. Weather

Where I live Autumn seems to have some pretty serious weather mood swings. We get the entire mix. Sun, rain, fog, sleet and snow are all thrown into the mix. I really enjoy incorporating weather as an element within my Autumn images. When the weather shows off I like to head outdoors and capture the display.

3. Leaf tossing

No Autumn is complete without a few good leaf tossing images! These are some of my very favourite captures during the Autumn season. As a bonus, these are some of my children’s favourite images too and they have so much fun tossing leaves up into the air.

4. Details

Don’t forget to fill the frame with all those beautiful Autumn details. There are so many different options here. Leaves, berries, wild mushrooms, apples and pumpkins are all great items that are reminiscent of Autumn.

5. Autumn Indoors

With all the beautiful changes occurring outdoors during the Autumn months it can be easy to forget about all the fun fall activities going on indoors. My children love to bake fall cookies and treats. I enjoy photographing these memorable moments.
