7 Focus on the details
For most of us, autumn images will be based around wide views that include the overflowing riches of auburn and burgundy that this season offers, but don't discount the details either. The autumn floor holds as much potential as the trees, all you need to do is take a closer look. Leaves, with their intricate designs and symmetry, are interesting subjects all year round, but their colourful transformation in autumn makes them particularly appealing this time of year. Look for subjects in pristine condition, or find dry, curled specimens littering the ground. Any type of lens is suitable, but you’ll find the versatility of a standard zoom with an extended range, such as the NIKKOR AF- S 24- 85mm f/ 3.5- 4.5G ED VR will allow for perfect compositions. A macro lens will allow you to focus even closer too, if you want to fill the frame with networks of leaf veins or other autumn miniatures, such as acorns, chestnuts and fungi.
