Watch the weather forecast – try and get out on a bright, sunny and dry day to really take advantage of natural light. Plus we all want to kick about in dry, crisp leaves rather than muddy, wet ones!

Capture reflections in still water – showcase the beauty of autumn through water not just land.  You can capture the clouds or nearby trees and bushes.

Get low – there is so much going on at ground level, get down and look! Falling leaves, twigs, conkers you name it! Plus this is where I find Joseph getting involved in the season! Conversely don’t forget to look up and see what is happening to the sky!

Above all, have fun with it. Autumn rocks!
