Outdoor Photography Class Fall Colour

Outdoor Photography Class Fall Colour Edition

Two part workshop for capturing better photos 

Autumn is almost here with exciting opportunities to photograph the colourful images of fall. Fall is my favourite season because of the light, the vibrant colours and being out in the fresh outdoor air. Taking photos outdoors, especially in autumn, needs specific know-how techniques. Our Outdoor Photography Class is scheduled for October 5 and all camera makes and models are welcome.

This is a two part class; the first part is a three hour classroom session where you will learn how to control the settings on your camera, how to meter or read the light, how to compose your photos, etc. With outdoor photography you need to understand and change the camera settings on the fly. In outdoor photography the light can change so quickly, or your subject may move, so you need to be able to compensate for these changes as quickly as possible. The main part of Outdoor Photography Class is dedicated to finding and changing these settings in your digital camera quickly without wasting any time. Here is an example of how fast the ambient light can change.

I took these photos about 5 minutes apart; although my exposure is correct in both photos, you can see how the overall effect of light has changed from one image to the other.

Another important topic we are going to cover in the Outdoor Photography Class is composition, and how to find the right angle. I took these photos from different heights and angles.
