Sweater weather is upon us and that’s a thing to make anyone rejoice. Fall is all about glorious, russet-colored beauty, a proliferation of pumpkin and apple desserts, and turning the cozy notch up to eleven. We’re partial to the vibrant tree-lined landscapes of the Pacific Northwest, but autumn is truly a global phenomenon. Wherever you are, we’re here to help you experience and enjoy all this season has to offer through your camera lens.

Below is a list of some quintessential autumn photos everyone should try, plus some tips for editing them to perfection with BeFunky Photo Editor. It’s the perfect way to give them that little extra touch of class, especially if you’ve got access to all the mind-blowing Plus features. Trust.

1. Feet In The Leaves.

Quick Tip
Amplify fall’s natural beauty by upping your saturation slightly (remember, overexposed=bad) in the Edit panel.

This one is probably the most popular shot of the season, but the sea of vibrant leaves under one’s feet is an irresistible photo op every time.

2. Colorful Reflection Shots.

Quick Tip
To make your reflection shots stand out even more, try clicking the Beautify button in the Edit panel. This will sharpen the reflection and add a perfect dose of richness to the colors in your shot.

It seems unbelievable that what was once lush green terrain should be transformed to an explosion of reds, yellows, and oranges, but every year, it happens.  This new variety of colors adds so much to reflection shots, which are always always a good idea.

3. Pumpkin Everything. And Also, Pumpkins.

They’re the ultimate harbinger of fall. Whether you’re at the pumpkin patch or your grocery store, there are plenty of opportunities to incorporate these babies into your Fall photography.

4. Golden Hour.

Quick Tip
Try adding Lens Flares to your photos and get the Golden Hour effect at any time of the day. 

A very magical thing happens the hour after the sun rises and the hour before it sets. It’s called Golden Hour, and it’s especially breathtaking in the Fall. The crisp, foggy air makes the sun beams thick and dreamy.

5. Apple Orchards.

Local apple orchards oftentimes have more varieties than you’d think possible. New hybrids are constantly being invented, and believe it or not, they all taste different. Crisp, juicy, and ready to pick (yourself, if you so choose). And also incredibly photogenic.

6. Fall-Inspired Drinks.

Yeah, Starbucks made the Pumpkin Spice Latte famous but in Portland, our coffee shops make them even more delicious and photo-worthy. You can try your hand at making your own PSL from scratch with this amazing recipe! Whatever your Fall drink of choice, snap away. Then sip away.

7. Colorful Ivy.

It’s not just the tree leaves that change colors.. Ivy is particularly gorgeous if it’s framing something, like the window in the photo above.

8. The Leaf Macro.

Get up-close and personal with a leaf and its singular beauty.  No two are alike, and with the right combination of sun and rain, they create their own bright little landscape as they fall to earth.

9. Leaf Throwing.

Quick Tip
Leaves looking gorgeous but your photos don’t match up for some reason? Fine tune your exposure with the Levels tool in the Edit panel for the crispest quality images this side of the internet.

Want an epic action shot? Throw those leaves up in the air! Or make a pile of them and jump right in.

10. The Primary Colors Of Autumn.

You know? The rustic reds, yellows, and oranges that make the season go round. Expand your imagination and look for these colors in everyday things instead of just the leaves.

Capture all that this ever-changing season has to offer, then enhance it with some photo editing magic.
