  • Shoot early and late in the day. Try to shoot a half-hour before and after sunrise or sunset. The colors will be incomparably richer, the shadows deeper, textures and forms stronger.
  • Shoot during or right after storms. The light is more dramatic, and wet leaves, structures and even roads take on more vibrant, intense tones.
  • Check for colors, shapes and light each time you shoot. A red leaf may be eye-catching, but it might look prettier when lit from a side that shows more texture, or, like a stained glass window, when lit from behind.
  • Shoot close-up details. A whole barn might seem boring, but its old weathered door or a cobwebbed window reflecting a tree might be a compelling image.Go to fullsize image
