Autumn photography with Lexar
Autumn photography.

Lexar have put together a series of steps to ease you into the autumn photography season. Lexar show you how to make the most of autumn light, they tell you how to create better landscapes by looking a little closer and also suggest what Lexar equipment can help you out along the way.


Whether you lament the loss of summer or welcome the promise of winter and its holiday festivities, there is no denying that autumn is officially on the way.  One way to make sure you get the most out of the season is to capture the colours and softer light with the aid of your digital camera.
 
If you decide to venture out, the photography experts at Lexar want to provide a few tips to help ensure you and your readers best capture the fleeting beauty in a meaningful and artistic way.
 
  • Peak time: Because peak time for gorgeous autumn colours varies, it is important to confirm the best time in your area.  But don’t despair if you’re late – a carpet of leaves can provide a unique background for other autumn inspired objects. For faster download time, a Lexar Professional UDMA 300x CompactFlash card partnered with the Lexar Professional UDMA Dual-Slot USB reader can maximise workflow and minimize post-production time.
  • Prime light: Autumn colours photograph well in a variety of lighting conditions. If it’s sunny, it’s best to shoot during the "magic light," which many professional photographers define as the first hour after sunrise and the last hour before sunset.  If it is overcast, your pictures will take on the more sombre mood of the impending winter but can still reflect the beauty of the surroundings.
  • Perfect perspective: While the ideal composition may present itself automatically, you may also need to study the scene to find the perfect angle.  Don’t limit yourself to the straight on view – think about looking at things at ground level or from a bird’s eye view.  Or, look at how you could use the natural surroundings, such as two tall trees, to frame the shot.
  • Put yourself up close: Many people think of landscape photography as photos that capture an entire scene, including trees, streams, mountains and more.  But remember to capture the individual elements to really help define the scene.  Try taking a picture of a puddle of water showing a reflection of the trees above or taking a macro shot of a single leaf turning colour.
  • Preferred technologies: The mesh of autumn colours creates a scene that is relatively easy to capture with most levels of cameras.  So, make the most of what you have – experiment with the different settings provided with the camera.  If using a SDHC-enabled DSLR camera, a Lexar Professional 133x SDHC card can speed up capture times, improve download times, and give you faster recycle time to eliminate waiting between shots.  At a practical level, a wide fabric or neoprene strap will allow you to comfortably carry your full-size 35mm camera, so you don’t sacrifice quality for comfort.
