According to world renowned photographer, Jim Zuckerman, the ideal conditions for shooting fall foliage is under light overcast. Jim takes you to a New Hampshire river in the heart of autumn for lessons in photo composition.

Jim chooses a wide angle zoom to compose the river surrounded by colorful trees. He shoots various compositions, with the river centered and also off center. You will learn how to recognize soft light, why cropping out the sky creates the best image composition, how to avoid camera vibration, and why a normal lens is a good alternative.

Follow pro shooter, Jim Zuckerman, as he captures outdoor New Hampshire in the blazing colors of fall.
