- Use a Polarizing Filter
Be sure to buy one of the circular polarizing filters so that you can adjust the amount of light you are filtering out. I have one for my SLR camera and I also have a polarizing filter to fit my Canon point and shoot camera.
The photo at the left is a tree in a nearby park that I photographed with the polarizing filter on my camera.
- Go to a Botanical Gardens If you have a favorite garden in your hometown be sure to visit it in the fall. Most gardens have special displays for the fall and it is a great place to take photos. I love the Missouri Botanical Garden in St. Louis. Here is a hubpage I wrote on the garden in the fall. Autumn at Missouri Botanical Garden The photo below shows a scene from last fall at the garden.
- A Farmers Market is a Great Place for Fall Photos I like to stop by my local farmers market and photograph the produce in the fall. The bins of apples, pumpkins and ghourds always make great photographs and many of the markets have special fall displays.
- Don't forget to include children doing fall activities in your photos. The pictures below are my granddaughters enjoying the pumpkins in the fall.
- Get in close for some interesting photos. Leaves are often hard to photograph in the fall because when you look at them up close you find they have a lot of wear and tear from the year, Be sure to look for some that are not too beat up and then zoom in close.
- My top tip for fall photography is enjoy yourself. Have fun with your camera, enjoy the scenery and relax and you will capture some outstanding shots!
