Dis­cover six ways to cap­ture the rich colours and golden light of the sea­son

Au­tumn is one of the best times of year to get out­doors with your Nikon D-SLR. The way the leaves change colour al­ters the scenery day by day, pro­vid­ing you with plenty of op­por­tu­ni­ties to get out and cap­ture some ter­rific images. Au­tumn re­ally is na­ture at its best.

Shoot­ing au­tumn isn’t all about get­ting the clas­sic wide-an­gle shot, how­ever. You can also take a cre­ative ap­proach to the sub­ject and cap­ture more orig­i­nal images that still man­age to en­cap­su­late the sea­son. From get­ting in close and isolating a sin­gle leaf to shoot­ing fun por­traits by throw­ing leaves into the air, we have it all cov­ered. By the end of this tu­to­rial you’ll be fully in­spired to cap­ture au­tumn from ev­ery an­gle!

We have a list of rec­om­mended gear to pack in your bag but, as al­ways, if you have limited kit don’t let that stop you. There’s plenty you can cap­ture us­ing just your D-SLR and kit lens

For our au­tumn shoot we headed to We­ston­birt, The Na­tional Ar­bore­tum (www.forestry.gov.uk/we­ston­birt) as it has a fan­tas­tic range of trees to ad­mire, and is well worth a visit this time of year. The Acer Glade in the Old Ar­bore­tum was par­tic­u­larly pho­to­genic on the day we vis­ited.

To get the best re­sults on your au­tumn shoot we have a list of rec­om­mended gear to pack in your bag (see left) but, as al­ways, if you have limited kit don’t let that stop you; there’s plenty you can cap­ture us­ing just your D-SLR and kit lens.
