Autumn 15-Minute Photo Challenge

There’s something about the rich, beautiful colors of fall that beckons the photographer in all of us. Autumn is the season of photography, when it seems that everyone is out and about with a camera.

And I’m right there with them! Like lots of folks, fall is a favorite time of year for me because it offers so many wonderful photographic subjects. There’s so much to shoot. There’s everything from the wide, landscape shots of colorful fall vistas to the up-close details of the leaves, nuts and the like.

In the video below, we see Gavin Hoey of Adorama taking a 15-minute Fall Photography Challenge. He wanders around an ordinary wooded area and as he’s wandering, finds amazing photographic subjects and creates some truly stunning images. It’s a wonder to watch.

Gavin gives us his thoughts about lighting, composition, exposure as he is shooting. So we get to know what he’s thinking with each shot. That’s really helpful.

Finally, he walks us through how he works with the image to enhance it in post processing.

It’s really a fun video to watch. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
