COLOURS OF THE AUTUMN.
What we know about autumn?
Autumn is one of the four seasons. Autumn marks the transition from summer to winter in September , when the duration of daylight becomes noticeably shorter and the temperature cools down considerably. One of its main features is the shedding of leaves from desidous trees.
Autumn is, perhaps, the most photogenic season of the year. It features misty mornings, fiery sunsets, and rich oranges and reds in the trees before the leaves fall and blanket the landscape. Later in the season you may see dewdrops on the undergrowth and the first frost as we move into October and November.
Opportunities for taking Autumn pictures are often fleeting, as a change of weather can cause the leaves to fall within just a few days and, as the days shorten, the time you have to shoot in daylight is limited, with patches of rain spoiling your shoots. With a little patience though, and good planning you can achieve some stunning Autumn pictures that will make all your effort worthwhile.
Also, this is the best time to do a portrait and landscapes and catch all colours: the rich warm tones and the range of browns, reds and oranges.This abundance of warm tones can play havoc with auto white balance systems and, in the same way as sunsets, can end up looking too cool toned. For this reason it is important to use the Sunny white balance preset, especially if shooting in JPEG – as Raw files can easily be corrected in processing.To boost the richness of the colours you can also try selecting the Cloudy preset, or increasing the colour temperature when processing your Raw files.
Wait for the best time, find the nice, full of the trees park and enjoy. Take Your family with You for a walk and use what nature give You.
I am showing You only few shots taken in the park in the city centre. What about, if You visit any other places in England, Wales or Scotland? The beautiful landscapes, forests, lakes and many others will give You an amazing chance to take a fantastic photo. Go for it 🙂 I will.
