Travel photos in the fall can look like a mess, because the days are often gloomy and the sky looks bleak and gray. That shouldn’t stop you from taking pictures during your autumn trips, and you can use these tips to make the best out of them.
One of the best things about this season is you get to encounter fall foliage at every turn. Getting changing leaves and trees in your frame will make everything 100% better, especially if you’re creative enough and enjoy experimenting with balance and exposure.
You’ll have to take a break from wearing your flowy, colorful dresses until next summer—but that shouldn’t stop you from looking chic in your photos. Pick an outfit that perfectly fits the color of the changing leaves, and remember you can use your umbrella as a prop in the photos.
The Golden Hour
Timing is everything when it comes to fall photography, and you’ll get the best results if you’re taking photos just after sunrise and just before sunset. Plan your sightseeing adventures with this in mind, and make sure you’re at your favorite attractions during the golden hour.
