Join us on September 19th, as we learn together what it takes to make beautiful pictures this coming Autumn.

Fall color never fails to excite nature lovers and photographers.  The lush greens of summer give way to cooler temperatures and colorful foliage.  Crowds viewing fall color peak in most areas, and the parks are filled with cameras.  Wildlife is at its peak with a sense of urgency from the rut and last-minute feeding before winter.  It’s the perfect time of year for photography.

Given all the build-up, what can photographers do to make better fall images?  What kinds of scenes work best in Autumn?  What gear do you need?  What camera settings help to optimize your images?  What post processing tips can enhance fall images?

We’ll take a look at all these things and more to help you make the best fall landscape images.  If your interest is wildlife, we’ll talk about how to capture wildlife images that feature fall color.  Let’s get ready for Fall!
