Shooting Fall Foilage- tips and tricks

Shooting fall color:

Shoot at golden hour. That will make the colors in the leaves appear warmer and more intense.

Rainy days are also great for photographing foliage: Rain saturates colors.

Don’t just shoot the foliage itself. Observe how it interacts with its environment. Be it by framing a house or fallen leaves covering a road, moving in the wind. Focusing on how the day feels and trying to capture that helps to convey a story.

Focus on small details. Like the contrast of a Fall leaf on green grass or in a stream.

 Way back in March we spent a few nights at the awesome #aurorabear yurt run by @frankstelges If you want to hang out at the coolest yurt while watching #auroraborealis reach out to him!! While waiting for the aurora to show up I ran the 80D in time-lapse mode and then stacked it all in #starstax which answers the question - what's it look like when you shoot the stars AND the full moon and StarStax it all. Captured with the #Canon #80D and 24mm f/2.8 lens. (Note - the 80D ran for 3 hours in near zero temps on one battery!)
