Beginners Guide to an Autumn Photo Shoot

Autumn for me is the most beautiful season to shoot in. Amazing sunrises, misty mornings and amazing colours will make sure that you have lots of stunning images to capture. The following hints and tips will make sure that you capture some beautiful pictures.

Autumn Landscapes

Remember when we are shooting landscapes to follow these simple steps.

Rule of thirds

Depth of field

Make sure you shoot with a large depth of field so that their is detail throughout the whole image.
F8 or higher will give you this. 

Sunsets & Sunrises 

When photographing sunsets and sun rises you may need to use the Exposure Compensation (AV) feature on your camera to make sure that the image isn't washed out. To do this you will need to select a negative adjustment. An alternative to this is to change the cameras metering mode to spot metering and focus on a mid tone within your image. Spot metering will also help you create some beautiful silhouettes.

The small things

Make sure you don't forget to look for the small things too, these can also make for some interesting Autumn images.

Family lifestyle shoot at Southwold.

A few weeks ago I was booked by Chris and Claire for a family lifestyle shoot over at Southwold. I first met Chris around 3 years ago at a networking meeting. He is a Director at one of Norfolk's largest web design agencies called Netmatters. (If you are looking for a web design firm who really knows their stuff these are the guys to talk to!)

I had only ever been to Southwold once before, just one of those places that slips off my radar a little, so it was great to go somewhere different. 

We started off at a little cafe at the end of the pier, where we chatted about what they wanted to achieve from the morning over a cup of tea and a bacon roll. :) It also gave me an opportunity to engage with little Isaac so he was more comfortable being around me.

We started the shoot down by the harbour which was a great little spot and this gave us lots of different areas to work in. We then finished the session off by heading down to the beach. It was a great morning and we got some great images.

If you would like to talk to me regarding a lifestyle shoot for your family please do get in touch. Just because the weather is getting colder, doesn't mean we can't do it, we can get some great images whatever the weather! 
Lifestyle family shoots start from £150 including a disc of all final images in high resolution so that you can print them and share them with the family. Gift vouchers are also available.
Feel free to give me a call on 07833491550 or email me at

Here are a few of my favourite images from the shoot.
