How to Get Great Autumn Photos

"Autumn... the year's last, loveliest smile."  In a few short words, american poet William Cullen Bryant paid perfect tribute to this colourful season, with its grandiose show before the diffident denouement.

Though fall takes us away from the heat of summer into the cold of winter,  the bold beauty of the changing leaves is among nature's best artwork.  The transformation from verdant to variety creates a canopy of glorious crimson, russet, orange and yellow, that inspires body, mind and soul.

The warmth of the palette balances the nip in the air as we don heavier garb to explore and enjoy the outdoors. A wander in the woods,  a promenade in the park or a cruise in the country are the perfect way to spend a lazy autumn afternoon. 

And a wonderful time to consider taking along the camera.

The lovely smile that is autumn not only produces wonderful landscape pictures, but it also provides the perfect backdrop for portrait photography. When it comes to family pictures at our house it's always the choice of season.
