Autumn Color Photography Tips

In searching for past posts about autumn colors, I came across one I wrote during my first year of blogging called Autumn Color.  In the article I talked about why leafs change colors and referenced a scientific article about it.  I included a couple of links on how to best photograph the fall colors but both those links are now dead. 😦

This got me out searching for new articles on how to best capture the changing colors of Fall for my bloggers and readers living in the Northern hemisphere close to deciduous trees.  There is some repetition between the three articles linked below but each has a slightly different take on how best to get those colors (or colours if you are Australian) to pop.

  1. Well, I won’t be needing these tips 😛 Maybe if we ever get to go much further north when the leaves change color.
    Beautiful photos.

    Not much in the way of color here just yet – usually mid-October for us. I’m noticing an awful lot of trees going straight to brown though; can’t help but wonder if it could be due to all the traumatic weather we’ve had in this area this summer. Thanks for doing the research Scott! You have some lovely vantage points in your photos here.


    • We are getting the same direct to brown in central NY. The Catskills look to be very muted this year as well. The wild weather over the summer is the reason. Not many maples have turned yet and they may bring the red and oranges.

      You’re welcome!

  9. Wonderful tips, and the articles you provided are also helpful. This will be my first year having a decent camera, a little bit of know-how, and photographing the fall colors. I’m looking forward to utilizing this information.
