Autumn Angles

With Autumn here you can get some really nice photos that are impossible to take during other seasons, and you can really capture nature's beauty in full!

When thinking about how to take a photo, and where, you must always place a great deal of thought into the angle, this is REALLY important!  Angle can make, or break a photo, and it's up to you to look at various view points, or you won't get the perspective or feel you really want! For instance, I was walking down this particular path, and it looked beautiful with the leaves falling and the sky a really nice colour, but as I tried to take a photo, it looked awful, until I remembered a photo I had seen the day before, taken from a very low angle, so I gave it a go, and I loved the effect!

Remeber: don't give up if you don't get it right first time! Mess about with the settings, and positioning, and you WILL get a great photo!

After Effects!

When looking or thinking of photos to take, taking the photo is only the beginning! With powerful editing software available for free online (e.g Picnik) taking the photo is only the first step!
          This photo was taken on a gloomy day, in a few minutes, with no preparation, when I got home,I opened it up on paint. That's right, good ol' MS paint,and I PAINTED the sky blue! Lo-tech edits master ;)
 I then uploaded it to picnik, straightened the photo out, and cropped it into a nice size,  and had a mess around with the exposure and contrast,I then added a focal zoom for the blurring effect,and Voila! A finished picture!

Even if a photo look awful, mess around with it,You might be surprised!
