A List Apart
"I'm never disappointed by Photojojo." -- Dave Johnson
We’re not sure what it is about autumn that makes us feel downright snap happy!
Maybe boots and sweaters just make us feel more poetic than flip-flops.
We know how quickly autumn’s colors fade, and we don’t want you and your lens to miss a minute of it.
So we’ve scoured Instagram for the season’s best hashtags to inspire you to trade in your lemonade for a latte, then get out there and capture fall in all it’s glory.
why it’s cool
All Link and Henry David Thoreau had to do when their spirits were down was visit their magical ponds. Lucky punks.
We don’t have a magical pond, but we do have a whole internet full of inspiration.
We’re big fans of Instagram, and we especially love the efficiency of the hashtag. It’s a great tool when there’s a certain something we’re trying to capture, be it a subject, place or even a particular color.
Pulling up a hashtag and spending time with other people’s work helps our photography to keep moving in a fresh direction. With 150 million users on Instagram you’re bound to find someone who makes you see things from a whole new angle.
FANCY FOLIAGE #LeafPeeping
These days we like take a gander at #LeafPeeping to enjoy the scenery without ever leaving our couch — or sharing our snacks.
When you head out to capture that leafy goodness for yourself, set your alarm clock to take advantage of that “golden hour” right after sunrise. Or, you could snuggle in for an extra 50 winks and hold out for those just-before-sunset rays.
FAIR GAME #CountyFair
The #CountyFair might not be such a great place for watching your waistline, but it’s always a good place to grab some fun and fanciful photos.
Apps like Slow Shutter Cam (iPhone) and Camera FV-5 (Android) offer DSLR-like control over your shutter speed, giving you the best shot at getting your best shot of swirling and whirling rides during evening hours.
GROWTH INDUSTRY #harvest
Farmers all over the United States are reaping what they’ve sowed this time of year, and it’s a nifty thing to witness. All those golden #harvest hues are really pretty.
Don’t have access to your own agricultural landscape? Head to a corn mazes or apple-picking orchard, which give you full access to farm photo ops without the responsibility of keeping things alive.
CLEAR EYES, FULL HEARTS #FridayNightLights
OK, so we don’t know what that means (or if it means anything at all).
But we do know that a night at your favorite local sporting venue can make for some dramatic and dynamic photos. Check out #FridayNightLights for a quick pigskin fix.
Grab an iPhone Telephoto Lens to get right up in the action!
