We are quickly approaching one of the best and most popular times of the year for landscape photographers in the Northern Hemisphere, when the leaves will turn, making for vibrant, popping scenes all around. The window of best opportunity is small, though, so you will want to make sure you are ready. This great video tutorial discusses seven common mistakes photographers make when shooting fall images and how to fix them or avoid them in the first place.
Coming to you from Photo Tom, this excellent video tutorial discusses seven common fall photography mistakes and how to fix or avoid them. The mistake that bit me in the behind a few years was simply not appreciating how small the window of maximum vibrancy really is. While the leaves typically change over the course of a few weeks, the period of best photographic opportunity is often much smaller, and depending on the weather where you live, you might only get a couple of days. Keep an eye on the forecast, have a plan, and be ready to head out when opportunity presents itself. Check out the video above for the full rundown.
