Tips for taking fall color photos

1 – Integrate lakes, ponds, rivers or creeks in photos to add an extra feature to the image. Use reflection in water if possible.
2 – Shoot during the golden hour just before sunset.
3 – Look for contrast in yellow aspen leaves and green pine trees.
4 – Take close-up detail shots on leaves.
5 – Take advantage of overcast and cloudy days.
