The first advice that I want to share with you is to find the right contrast. Regardless of the type of the type of the photo and even the subject or the time of day, the contrasts can provide the best visual effects in a photo no matter the season. You can always use a cheat like using the white balance settings for added color and that’s a little trick I discovered while experimenting: you need sharper colors ? By using polarizing filters ( which I have spoken in the previous article ) and set the white balance to ” Cloudy ” or ” Shade “, even if it is sunny outside you’ll get the right sharp colors you want. In fact, who uses the exact color settings because despite setting the white balance correctly you will not get the correct ( in terms of purely technical ) balance and sharpness. If shooting in RAW format you can experiment with different white balance values by using the conversion software that is available mainly free of charge. Do not ignore the ” ugly ” times. Bad weather is the source of the best photos of autumn.

Why do I say that? Because rain, wind, fog and any other specific weather conditions specific to the rainy season can be the perfect ingredient for the most successful autumn shots. Sky blue, specifically the one during summer, it is not desirable. Portraits of fall ? Of course, but you must first use the experience that this thing grants ! Portraits can be done in any season, regardless of the location used. But autumn can give you the perfect excuse to experiment. Shoot your pictures in RAW format and even if I know that this advice is already becoming a cliché, it is more important than ever to allow the edit and digital processing of your photos at will, especially when you are looking back to photographs taken some time back. So, ” shoot ” in RAW format and some processing using the Adobe Photoshop or Lightroom software can get you the photos you want any time without the need of editing them every time.
