EAGLE RIVER - Capturing the beauty of fall can be tricky for an amatuer photographer. When it comes to taking great fall pictures, there are many things that you can do to achieve success.
The red, yellow and orange leaves have begun to pop all across the Northwoods.
Whether you're using your iphone, or an expensive camera, you need to know your light.
One of the most important tips is what time of day to go out and shoot pictures.
Jen Ruby-Durst, the owner of Ruby Photography explains, "Early in the morning is my favorite time. This time of year you have frost, maybe a little snow and fog. After a rain storm, when all the colors are nice and saturated, a nice cloudy day, or even late at night."
Ruby-Durst suggests taking wide sweeping shots, plus tighter closeup ones.
She also said to change up your perspective by climbing to the top of a hill, or by sitting on the ground.
"So often people assume that just because you have a big expensive camera you can take the best pictures. But that's not the case. If you have your camera phone, a DSLR, it doesn't matter, just get out and take pictures. Especially in fall, it comes and goes so quickly, in the blink of an eye. So you need to get out there and enjoy it while it's still around," adds Ruby-Durst.
