Shooting fall colors is something I just don’t get to do much of here in the PNW. Sure, we do have some fall colors, but nothing like the midwest or the northeast of the country. 

Today I’m talking with David Long about photographing fall colors. David, welcome to the show!

You were last on the show in November, 2018.https://latitudephotographypodcast.com/episode/new-england-with-david-long/

My goodness, has it really been that long? Anyway, we talked about photographing New England in the winter, and this time, we’re going to talk about fall colors. 

Main Points:

Let’s start off with just a bit about yourself so listeners can be reminded of who you are and what got you into photography…

Let’s talk about preparing for fall colors, in general. What should we be thinking about?

Compositional elements

Lenses and filters

Quality of Light



Judging a proper exposure
