How to shoot fall Color It’s September, the days are getting shorter, and very soon the leaves will start to turn. Autumn foliage, or fall foliage, depending which side of the pond you’re on, must be one of nature’s most beautiful spectacles, and is certainly a tempting subject for photographers. So how can we make the most of the stunning display of colour?

Garry Winogrand is one of my favorite street photographers that I have gained much photographic insight and wisdom from. He was in-arguably one of the most prolific street photographers of his time (he shot over 5 million photographs in his career) and one of the most passionate. I never understood a lot of the things that he said in street photography like why you should wait a year or two before developing your shots, why photographs don’t tell stories, and how photographers mistake emotion for what makes great photographs. Although I didn’t really get what he was saying, I was intrigued....
Taking photographs during nights or low light situations can be lots of fun captured by specialized equipment such as SLR cameras, tripods, cable releases and flashguns. After sunset, as the light that passes brings a special quality to our everyday world magically transforms all buildings, fireworks and the northern lights becoming popular subjects. For this post, we have compiled a collection of striking examples of low light photography.
Everyone takes a camera with them on holiday, whether it’s a top of the range DSLR, or a phone camera. And it’s lovely to keep these holiday photos afterwards, as memories for yourself, as well as to show to other people.

My name is Tony Worobiec. I teach a MyPhotoSchool course on Digital Low Light Photography.
In this article I will aims to cover the main technical problems you are likely to encounter when photographing in low light or at night.
Many inexperienced photographers think that there are many difficult technical challenges involved with this kind of photography, but as you will quickly discover, photographing at night is no more difficult than during the day.
In my blog a couple of weeks ago (Creative Photography – Shallow Depth of Field) I looked at understanding depth of field. In particular I was talking about a creative use of a shallow depth of field, where we purposely have only a small part of the image in sharp focus, set against an area of out of focus colour.
I think the reasons we take travel photos are to remember where we were and to share those places with others. When we upload images to the web or make prints when we return home, we want our friends and families to see and enjoy the things we encountered. However, just as there is a difference between tourists and travelers, the former flitting like bugs on the surface of things, the latter happily diving below the surface, so it is with photographers. Despite carrying expensive cameras, the tourist photographer spends little time in any one place. Mostly, they snap a few photos of local monuments, buildings, or some scenic setting, before they quickly move on...
Which camera orientation should I use landscape or portrait?
There are lots of different decisions we have to make when we’re taking photographs – what lens to use, what aperture and shutter speed to choose, what to include in or exclude from the picture, whether to use any filters… the list goes on.
But one of the simplest decisions we have to make can also have the most fundamental effect on the resulting image – and this is simply whether to have the camera in a horizontal (landscape) or a vertical (portrait) orientation.
