Come autumn, we're surrounded by some of nature's most breathtaking scenery, making it difficult not to feel inspired to take at least a few snapshots. However, if you're like most people, your photo-taking skills probably max out with a simple point-and-shoot technique. That's why we called in the experts from PopPhoto.com. From advice on when to use your flash (as well as when not to) to what time of day lends the best light, read on for easy tips to help you capture a foliage framer this fall!

Let there be morning light

• Early morning and late afternoon are called the "golden hours"; the directional light of the low sun adds warmth and depth to landscapes, but it doesn't last long, so act swiftly to nail the shot.
• Look around: a great shot may literally be right behind you.

Use the weather to your advantage

• Morning mist and fog can give an elegant softness to a scene.
• Foliage that's been dampened by a sunshower has a magical quality on film.

Take in all views

• Capture the sweeping vista. Or…
• Close-focus on a single leaf with a soft, out-of-focus background. You can also try zooming in on a puddle for an abstract reflection of the colors (a longer exposure—1/2 second, or enough to capture movement—can be used to trace falling leaves or windblown branches for a neat effect).
• Build depth in your images with layers: foreground (leaf), midground (tree) and background (mountain).

Check your LCD

• If the colors don't pop, adjust your exposure compensation and reshoot. You can check your camera manual to find the exact location of the Exposure Comp button (hint: look for the +/- sign).

Take advantage of people

• When there are people in the foreground, turn on the flash—it usually balances the exposure on their faces with the foliage in the background.
• Go off-center; a face doesn't always have to be in the middle of the shot.
• A person in the distance can give a sense of scale to a sweeping scene.

Use common sense

• Don't back up blindly to recompose a shot; falling down is one thing, but falling off the edge of a cliff is another!
• Respect wildlife both big and small by not getting too physically close to animals—use your zoom instead.
