|From last year|
|Taken in the late evening, see how warm the color is?|
Taking photos during the golden hour will really show off those vibrant hues! The golden hour is the hour after sunrise and the hour before sunset when the light is "golden" and shows off the best color.Also make sure your white balance isn't on auto. Your white balance is the sunny, cloudy, fluorescent, etc settings. Cloudy will give you a warmer photo and enhance those colors! That's my go to setting on my own camera.
|I underexposed this a touch to deepen the red of the leaf|
|Nice contrast of red with a touch of green|
Look for contrast. Things like a yellow tree against a bright blue sky or a person wearing red against green grass really make a photo pop.
And my favorite, macro! This is the little tulip or flower button on your point and shoot, or use a macro lens if you have on for your dSLR. This is a great time to get those up close detailed pictures of leaves and fading flowers!
