It’s the most magical time of year again! Fall is by far the best season in my opinion. I love when the air turns colder, the hoodies and boots come out, and the leaves dazzle us with their colorful display. For our next image contest, our theme is fall. We are looking for all kinds of images, show us what fall looks like to you! Here are some tips to get you started.
HOW TO ENTER:
You can either upload your image to Instagram and tag it #wtpfall or post it to our Facebook page. Not mandatory, but it would also be awesome if you mentioned the contest and tagged us in your caption. 🙂
Contest will run Sept. 16th – Oct. 28th, we want to make sure you have plenty of time to catch those leaves!

Two runner-ups will receive both of our preset packs.
Winners are also featured on our home page, and on our Instagram main feed and in the story highlights.
GET HIGH, GET LOW
Change your perspective when you are photographing fall leaves. Get high by climbing there, either by trail or fire tower the views are sure to impress. Or if you have a drone, now is the time to let it fly. Get low by laying down on your stomach or crouching. This is a great way to include leaves in your foreground.
Break out the pumpkins, apples, and warm blankets to add some visual interest to your images. Also, try wearing fall colors in your wardrobe to compliment the colors. Find my skirt here.
We love these fall colored throws!
MAKE FALL COLORS POP
Turn your cameras white balance to cloudy, this will add some warmth to your images which will really help make those fall colors pop.
Alternately, you can pop those colors in Photoshop by adjusting your white balance there. Selective colors is also a great tool for adjusting colors. I cover this in my Photoshop course.
CREATIVE LEAF USE
Get creative with your leaves!
- Throw them in the air to add in some action.
- You can also hold them up to your lens for a different framing effect.
- Shoot through the leaves.
- Use branches to creatively frame your image.
