Photography Tips For Beginners : Keep your Camera with you at ALL times!

nature2729Keep your Camera with you at all times.

Some of the best pictures happen when you least expect them. A candid of a child that captures them just the way they are. A picture of an animal in its environment. Sometimes you never know when the right moment will hit or when something will catch your eye. If you keep your photo equipment really simple, just your bag and camera, you will be ready to go. Your cell phone can work too. Just take a picture to remember a location that you want to return to at a later time.

Dancin' Leaves4999Since Summer is almost over ( I know, can you believe it?) it’s the perfect time to start thinking about what to take pictures of in the Fall. Here is a list of some things to take pictures of.

1. Leaves. There are so many different ways to photograph leaves. On the trees, in the air, on the ground. The possibilities are endless.

2. Pumpkins. Big ones, little ones. Line them up or scatter them around. A perfect fall item to take pictures of.

3. Trees changing color. did you ever notice that there are so many different colors of leaves in Fall?

4. Halloween decorations. From whimsical to scary, capture all that October has to offer.

5. Barns. Whether it’s a landscape photo or a shot of some rustic wood, barns are an amazing fall staple.

6. Festivals. Check out the many food and fall themed Festivals in Bucks County this autumn.

7. Waterfalls or any moving water

8. Bales of Hay. They have great textures to capture.

9. Pinecones. Another fall item with great colors and designs.

10. Gourds. So many textures and colors.

11. Sunlight coming through the trees. Check out how photographers play with glare to create some really interesting photos.

12. A lonely trail or even your driveway, covered in leaves. Capture the feeling of fall.

13. A roaring bonfire. So many interesting patterns and colors for you to capture.

14. Flames from your own cozy fireplace. Watch the flames dance and move.
