8 Wood­land con­tre- jour

Digital SLR Photography - - Autumn -

Cap­tur­ing back­lit scenes of forests and wood­lands is a pop­u­lar tech­nique with out­door pho­tog­ra­phers, but it adopts an ad­di­tional di­men­sion in au­tumn. By shoot­ing into the sun, trees are back­lit and strong shad­ows are cast through the scene, lead­ing to at­mo­spheric re­sults. in au­tumn, the reds and golds of the fo­liage add even more im­pact and, in the right con­di­tions, the trees can look ablaze in colour. Re­search the weather and when clear days are fore­cast, head out early to the for­est and cap­ture the sun while it’s still low in the sky. Even the best me­ter­ing sys­tems strug­gle, so con­stantly re­view re­sults and ap­ply nec­es­sary com­pen­sa­tion to en­sure per­fect ex­po­sures.
