Autumn moves south at a speed of around 2 MPH so here in the New Forest it is much later than most people in the country imagine.  Although the best colours on acers can be in September and October quite often we don’t see the best colours in beech trees till early November.  Photographing the colours of autumn can be tricky too especially on a bright day.  Our eyes can see a much greater range of exposures and colours than even the very best modern cameras cope with and if you use them on auto they can easily be fooled into giving you poor exposures.  Even when you get the exposure right, shooting in RAW allows you to bring the very best details out in your final image.  If you would like to learn more I can help.  Click here to take a look.
