Idea 1 – Photographing Fungi

Photographing fungi in Autumn

Autumn is a great time for photographing fungi. To find the fungi get close to the ground and look for rotting logs. Using a higher focal length and a wide aperture will compress the scene and help draw the eye to the fungi. Learn more about focal lengths and apertures by clicking here.

Idea 2 – Spiders Webs

Idea 3 – Shoot through the trees

Clearly one of the best things about Autumn is the changing colour of leaves. Simply zoom in and set a wide aperture to get a Shallow Depth of Field. Looking up through the tress will back light the leaves and create that bokeh look in the background. To learn more about Bokeh click here.

Idea 4 – Grab the Autumn landscape, whatever the weather!
