This tutorial is not really a tutorial at all. More of a gallery of some of the lovely autumn pictures Click students have taken over the years. You know where the best autumn colour is near to where you live and you just need to go there at the right time. Autumn sun will enhance the browns and reds and you can decide if you shoot a big landscape or just a single leaf.
Remember 1. Sunlight will enhance the colours 2. Early morning and twilight are great times for Autumn colour with the sun low in the sky 3. Shoot wide landscapes if there is a decent viewpoint 4. Shoot close-ups with camera set to the close up or Macro setting (flower symbol ) 5. Collect leave to take home ad shoot on a tabletop. 6. Edit smartphone pics to increase saturation and vibrance
Leaves on the ground I like to shoot pics of the leaves after they've fallen to the ground. There's a wonderful period before they lose their colour or start to disintegrate as people walk over them on pavements. Leaf Soup If it rains a lot you can make great puddle pictures
Using clip-on lenses 1. Work with a partner and arrange the leavs before starting to shoot 2. Set up the light to the side and close to the leaves 3. Move in and out gently to focus. Tapping the screen is not the best technique with clip-on lenses. 4. Use volume controls to take the picture 5. Until you get really close everything will appear out of focus. 6. Take turns 7. Take your time and CHECK IT'S SHARP
Autumn studio Make a tabletop studio at home using just a table lamp and a light or dark background. Spray the leaves with water
