I was walking around the green belt of Boise, ID yesterday, I was reminded how beautiful autumn is. This might sound weird, but in Alaska, our autumn is not nearly as pretty as other parts of the world. Sure, we have snow capped peaks and gorgeous scenery. But we have boring fall.
I thought of this great article as I was taking shots. I found the histogram tip very good. In fact, the histogram tip has been one of the best tips I’ve picked up. Watch out for the blinkies!
Also, the day was slightly overcast. There was some blue, but I think the high clouds helped to keep the hard shadows at bay. I really like the above shot. You can’t get anything like this in Alaska.
And after this, I am seriously considering a ND filter. It would have helped with some of the water shots I was trying. Could close the lens down enough for the brightness yesterday.
Do you have other fall shooting tips?
