There is nothing better than being outside on a crisp fall day.  In the northern part of the United States, we are treated to an amazing color display as our trees turn from green to a variety of yellows, and reds.  But, even after the leaves are off the trees, there is still much to capture since fall is also a festival of harvest time.

This class will show you how to capture interesting fall photos that you will be happy to share with friends and family.  We will spend time discussing techniques for both capturing and processing our photos to really make the colors pop.

Course Overview:

This class consists of a lecture followed by a field trip.  The field trip is designed to allow you to practice the techniques taught in the class with the assistance of an instructor.  We have found this to be an excellent way to reinforce the concepts. 

This course the following topics:

  • Planning your fall photography outing

  • Capturing the changing leaves

    • Camera settings​

    • Composition 

    • Coping with the elements

    • Post processing

  • Landscape photography fundamentals

    • Composition​

    • The hyperfocal point

  • Other things to photograph in the fall​

    • Harvest time​

    • Halloween

During the class we will show a number of examples as we explain these concepts.  This will help you understand how this might apply to photos that you want to take.  

The classroom portion will last about 1 1/2 hours.  Once the classroom portion is complete, we will venture to one of the local parks to practice.  During the time in the field, participants will be guided through a set of exercises designed to reinforce the concepts taught during the class.  We make sure to spend time with each person to make sure that they know how to set the proper settings on their camera.  There will also be plenty of time to ask questions.
