Striking Autumn Images:
Using a slow film (ISO 100)—or the equivalent setting on your digital camera—will give you more-saturated colors and finer grain than will faster films. To further accentuate brilliant colors, try holding a polarizing filter in front of your camera’s lens on a sunny day. This filter must be used at a 90° angle to the sun to polarize its rays. You’ll get more-saturated blue skies, and a polarizer will also remove surface reflections from wet leaves for richer color.
Although many colorful photo opportunities
await you, consider doing a little black-and-white photography. There are a
number of great black-and-white emulsions on the market if you’re shooting
film, or you can make a simple adjustment on a digital camera to create black-and-white
images. Ansel Adams shot many fall masterpieces in black-and-white.
