He offers these tips for amateur photographers trying to get good shots of autumn colors in any region:
- Don't discount overcast days for shooting. Cloudy days are great because colors are more saturated.
- On sunny days, try lying on the ground, looking up through a tree with the sun coming through the leaves, and watch the colors explode as you shoot.
- Try focusing on a single branch or one glorious leaf instead of trying to get a panoramic view of an entire valley or mountain range.
- Try using an ordinary pair of blue sunglasses as a light filter by holding it in front of your camera lens to intensify the colors.
