    A Guide to Photographing Fall Foliage

    Last updated 1 month ago

    As summer becomes fall, leaves on the trees change from hues of green to beautiful blends of golden yellow, brown, and orange.  This naturally provides breathtaking scenery for you to capture on camera. Fall foliage can produce captivating images with ease, but using these helpful tips can help ensure you have the perfect picture to convey autumn’s natural charm.  

    Adding Context

    A picture of a leaf or tree can be intensified by what else is in the frame. Capturing a tree alongside an enchanting creek can give your photo the sense of tranquility and solitude found in the wilderness. Or perhaps you can capture the fall foliage in New York City’s Central Park with couples walking hand and hand to evoke a feeling of romance. Using other images in the frame strategically can add an extra layer of meaning that will push your photos to new heights.

    Utilizing Different Tools and Techniques

    Perhaps you want to shoot a wide-range shot of an entire street lined with beautiful foliage. Using a rangefinder camera, in place of a popular SLR, can be a great tool to free up both eyes to get a whole sense of the scene you are capturing. No matter what kind of camera you use, you can manipulate your camera’s aperture to achieve certain effects. As a basic guide, smaller apertures have a longer range of focus that produces sharper backgrounds, while larger apertures produce hazier backgrounds. Another terrific technique is to capture a leaf, branch, or tree close up. Focusing on one object using a wide-angle lens can make one leaf seem like a world unto itself.

    Are you looking for the right equipment to capture stunning fall foliage? Look no further than Camera Land in New York City. We have cameras and accessories from all of the best brands, such as Nikon and Leica. Call us at (212) 753-5128, or come visit us in person to see how we can help you today.
