Each season has its own color palette. Saturated green prevails in summer, spring meets shades from blue to pale green, in winter white prevails. All variations of yellow, red, red are a comfort zone of autumn. Therefore, autumn, especially the “Indian summer”, is one of the favorite seasons of many photographers. There is where to roam! Therefore, we clean the optics and the memory card, charge our "photo gun" and one of the nice days we go on a photo hunt for new pictures.
Step one. Record our expectations
First, let's figure out how a photo shoot in nature in the autumn can be organized . Write down ideas of the most suitable photo options for you on a piece of paper. How do you see the result of the photo shoot? What pictures do you want to get? Answer your question: will you take story shots? Or limit yourself to a dozen portraits against the backdrop of beautiful landscapes? If you prefer to create a plot, then think it over in more or less detail. Who will be present at the pictures? Couples in love? Or maybe it will be a family photo shoot in nature in the fall? Write down ideas and expectations in a detailed list.
Step Two Decide on a place or route
Looking at the Internet various options for wonderful photos on the background of distant cliffs or on the seashore, you can imagine yourself as heroes of these paintings as much as you like, but let's approach the upcoming photo shoot more realistically. Choose a place that all participants will have easy access to. Choose the right time for your photo tasks. It is advisable that you not visit the filming location for a very long time. It will be a shame upon arrival to find on the picturesque shore of the lake instead of a bright maple a giant pile of garbage and logs from a sawn-down giant. But this happens, unfortunately. Of course, you can find a clearing in the neighborhood or, taking out the garbage, devote a series of pictures to this. But it’s better to avoid it.
If you decide to take pictures in several places, then consider the route. For example, at 8 in the morning we start at the Zalesnaya stop, we go along the forest path to the lake, we stop at the old oak, etc. Maybe you should take bicycles or scooters?
Step Three What to take with you?
What (whom) and where you are going to photograph is roughly determined. The time has come to collect bags so that your photo shoot outdoors in the fall is a success. Ideas for using all kinds of props depend on the time of year. It’s easy to create an autumn setting: the favorites are warm, bright colors. Red scarf, orange pumpkins, brown suitcase. Take another look at your wish list (first step). He will tell you what to look for on the mezzanine. We will not dwell on this point in detail. We are sure that the ideas of a photo shoot in the fall in nature have already appeared in your head . Photos requiring props, probably already in your mind's eye.
When collecting a bag, the most important thing is to remember to grab all the necessary equipment for the pictures.
If you will be hunting snapshots all day, think about a snack. Well, if it will be sufficiently "photogenic". Perhaps you will not be bothered by a thermos with tea ... Or maybe you have already thought of a stop in a picturesque cafe?
If you go to nature by car, then you can not deny yourself anything at the fees, although the luggage capacity is also not unlimited. If you are planning a foot hunt, then, of course, it will not hurt to bring the weight and volume of bags into line with your capabilities.
Step Four Image creation
When choosing clothes for a walk outside the city, look at the weather forecast. Still, you are planning a photo shoot in nature in the fall. Ideas of images should correspond to the season.
Will you change while shooting? Of course, if you have a picture of you hugging in a sarafan in the November dank wind against a background of blue clouds, then your love story photo session will surely be enriched with this. Ideas in the fall may have other consequences. It will be a shame, looking at these pictures, to recall the pneumonia that you then grabbed.
Inspect the far corners of the wardrobe: as a rule, the atmosphere in the photo is created by things that are simply illiquid in everyday life: a grandmother’s flower dress, a fox collar eaten by a moth on the side (but we will turn the other side). Do not forget to choose jewelry and shoes. You may need a hat.
Step Five Make up
Think about makeup. When is it best to apply it? Before leaving home? Or already in point B, where you will begin to take pictures. The answer depends on your ideas. Daytime makeup in sunny weather will only decorate the beginning of your walk, but a make-up in the style of a bride thrown at the altar will leave visitors to the park at least at a loss. It is worth noting that in the first case it is worth grabbing a minimum set of tools to refresh the image, and in the second you need to carry everything.
Think in advance about the images, if you want your photo shoot outdoors in the fall to work out. Ideas for two in love with each other will differ significantly from ideas for friendly or children's pictures. The photograph should tell the viewer who is depicted in it: two old friends or a sweet couple. Refer again to point one: what do you want to see in your pictures? If you have a family photo shoot in nature in the fall, ideas will already be in a completely different vein.
Step Six Poses
Of course, the photographer will show the main poses, since he is the one who looks at the model through the lens. However, it does not hurt to pose in front of the mirror the day before, choose and remember with your body a dozen winning angles and poses that match your figure and face type.
In order to look and feel good, it is also recommended not to drink a lot of water at night, do not drink alcohol per day, have a good breakfast. And then your photo shoot in the fall will certainly succeed, ideas for the best shots will inevitably visit you!
