Autumn it’s my favourite season, well actually, Spring is too.
Autumn is full of beautiful clouds and dramatic skies but more importantly it’s full of the beautiful colours of Autumn.
There are two times to photograph the colours of Autumn, when the leaves are ‘turning’ on the branches and when the leaves have fallen – if you’re lucky you can find that ‘perfect time’ with both: leaves turning on the branches and fall on the ground.
Coolart Homestead in Somers has beautiful Autumn colours and is the perfect location to photograph them.
Learn how to really photograph the colours of Autumn at this workshop.
Join us, we’ll show you how to take the best Autumn photos

When you take a photo your camera does the editing for you.
It adds saturation, exposure, contrast and a whole lot of other editing on your behalf, but this may not be what you like.
You might want to do the editing yourself and you need to do this editing in programs like Lightroom or Photoshop or similar.
If you want total creative control over your photograph, shooting RAW and not JPG (that is the cameras default photo file).
RAW is what’s called a DNG, Digital Negative and just like an old fashioned 35mm film, it needs to be developed.
In the Digital photography space, a RAW file has to be developed and you are the developer using Lightroom.
Lightroom is more than just a powerful editing tool, it is also a program that organises your photographs so that you will always be able to find them in an instant, it is a printing tool and a library tool and so much more
These Introduction to Lightroom is just that: how to bring your photos into Lightroom and make then make them pop!
