Capturing Autumn In Digital

Aug 28, 2008
One of the most ideal seasons for people to take out their digital cameras and start taking beautiful images is autumn. Autumn is full of warm colors and pretty foliage of reds, browns and yellows. If you are a camera buff, whether amateur or professional, you are bound to take great joy in this splendid display of nature. It wouldn't be much of a surprise if most people are inspired buy digital cameras in the fall to record all this magnificence.

Shooting the colors of autumn using a digital camera may seem easy, but there are a lot of ways to maximize the performance of your camera to capture the splendor of fall.

While autumn presents varied opportunities to take pictures of the changing colors of tress, the best times of the day to take pictures of falling leaves is during early morning or late in the evening. These times of the day are most often known to photographers as the magic hour - the hour the follows the sunrise, and the hour immediately preceding sunset. While the magic hour does not always guarantee that all pictures will turn out perfect, these are the hours of the day when the light is at its best.

Digital cameras can take good images of landscapes, but they can be best utilized to take really detailed shots of smaller subjects. Think close-ups of leaves in various vibrant shades of red and yellow that will make a fabulous representation of the season.

When taking pictures using SLR digital cameras, composition is one of the key factors that determine the difference between a so-so photograph and a picture that seems to jump out of the paper. The best way to get the best composition is to move around the subject and take different pictures at different angles.

There are hundreds of possibilities to take when angling for the perfect shot while using multi-featured digital cameras. Shooting from a height is a unique way of looking at a subject. Do the opposite and shoot from the bottom up, or change the composition of the subject by moving either a foot to the left or to the right. It's amazing what digital cameras can do for the composition of a subject when taken at assorted angles.

It is important to give yourself plenty of time to take the perfect shot. Although digital cameras are handy for taking multiple shots - keeping the good ones while deleting the rest, it is still to your best advantage to study your surroundings for a while to get a clear idea of which subject to shoot.

There are many beautiful images of autumn that are best captured by a digital camera, and wandering off the beaten path to take pictures of a hidden lake shadowed by red and gold trees, or a pumpkin patch off by the roadside with its crop of orange fruit waiting to be picked, will result in one-of-a-kind pictures.

Autumn is a wonderful time to take beautifully rendered digital photographs, so grab your digital camera, go exploring, and make the season an excuse to bring out the digital artist in you.
