Tutorial: Autumn Skies Photography

Elements of sky photography

Expanses of water will reflect the sky, giving added interest to your images.

However you do not have to specifically use lakes or rivers - focus on puddles in the street after a rainstorm for a similar effect or even wet sand by the sea.

Black & white
Clouds within skies naturally lend themselves to black & white photography. Use the 'My Colors' setting on your camera to achieve this and other similar monochrome effects.

An interesting mix of colour and black & white can be achieved with the 'Color Accent' menu. This lets you choose one colour whilst the rest of your image becomes black & white.
