Select a Spot
The first thing that you need to do is to select a spot where there are plenty of photographic opportunities. Gardens are not a bad idea, and if you have a wild life park nearby, it is even better. The variety of trees will give you different kind of views to capture. If there is a source of running water around, you can use it as well to add to the beauty of your snapshots.
The Right Time
Ideally go at a time when there are not many people around so that you can take your time and be able to analyse potential pictures in a better way. It will also allow you to capture more pictures.
Try to visit the area a few times in various light conditions to see which ones work best. You can take a few pictures every now and again and see how the results are coming.
You will need to be patient to get great results.
You will need to use a good quality camera which can produce good results even in unfavourable light conditions.
This is very important since you may do everything right and capture the perfect shot of autumn’s beauty only to find out that the camera let you down.
Use your Imagination
Be imaginative in your attempts. Try to do something different and incorporate various ideas. Do not look for the perfect scene, nature’s beauty lies equally in its symmetry as in its ruggedness. Try to have various elements such as water, trees with changing colours and other similar elements into your pictures.
If you are taking pictures on the road side, it is not a big deal if there is a car or a building in the view since they will add to the beauty in most cases.
