Fall is a great season for photography. There are countless motifs in the most beautiful colors that you simply have to capture with the camera! I like to use this time to collect many wonderful autumn motifs. Especially in the forest, the whole ground is covered with a soft mat of colored leaves and offers a wonderful starting material for pictures of this time of year. If you then press the shutter button at the right moment, everything is perfect!
The best time of day for bright colors
The midday sun also leads to very hard shadows in autumn, but brings with it many interesting color gradients. In areas with many trees, however, the midday hours are just the right time to capture the brightly colored foliage. This then gets the most sunlight and the colors appear even stronger.
The focus is on the light!
In order for the colorful autumn leaves to really come into their own, you definitely need light when taking photos. Therefore, try to position yourself in such a way that the leaves are illuminated as well as possible. In the forest, there may be small clearings or aisles through which the light falls favorably. You will see how the foliage on the ground turns into a flowing play of colors.
A forest path has something picturesque at any time of the year – but especially in autumn it really sets the scene with its special color compositions. Of course, there aren’t just pumpkins and apples lying around in the forest. We deliberately added the circumstances to capture these wonderful photos with the two dogs for the souvenir album.
At the layout We have chosen a matching leather-look paper background for the side. The only contrast is the edges of the photos and the lettering Herbstzeit. The leaves made of photo cardboard are also integrated into the colors of autumn. You see, with really little effort in terms of material and time, an equally harmonious and colorful one is created photo page.
If you would like to cut a few leaves out of photo cardboard, we have made a template sheet for you to print out.
