Five Flavors of Fall

Fall is very much upon us, and what better way to celebrate it than to look at some of the fantastic pictures taken around the world over the past two months. I have chosen my five favorites from an assortment of sources that include Associated Press, Getty Images, Reuters. To see more great images, go to The Big Picture photo article, Autumn 2012: Celebration of the season or the In Focus photo article, Fall Is in the Air. Enjoy.

Taking Creative Control of Your Imaging Equipment

Photo: Chuck DeLaney, NYIP DirectorWhat does it mean to be a photographer or a videographer? It's partly knowing how to use your equipment, but it's primarily having confidence in yourself and calling the creative shots. As we teach at the New York Institute of Photography, equipment can't make important decisions about shutter speed, aperture, panning, framing, zooming, focusing, filters, or cropping. It's all in your hands; you've only to get your brain and creativity in gear to capture memorable shots or shoot wow-inducing, well paced footage.
 
 
We have some tips for photographers as autumn rolls around. Before you know it, leaves will begin to turn color, and there will be some creative and technical decisions to make as you venture out to shoot Nature's blaze of glory. Be sure to look at our popular Fall Photo Tips article for practical how-to suggestions, and here's some inspirational video footage by Finland's Joona Vainio, taken with a Canon HV30 ... but creatively controlled by Joona.
