video project template for Adobe After Effects that’s rich in colour and tone. Including
atmospheric falling leaves and a stunning golden wash over the whole template. You’ll

Sometimes you want to
record footage but the season just isn’t playing ball: no snow in winter, no
crunchy golden leaves in autumn. Stock footage isn’t cheating, we promise – and
this Autumn Leaf Fall piece is a beautiful representation of the season.
This is a really lovely piece of footage, a single autumn
leaf falling into a puddle, starting out of focus before coming into the
foreground sharp as a tack.

Tuts+ Top Tips for Fall Photography
- Capture colours by avoiding cool tones. Try
changing your white balance to cloudy or sunny to see immediate in-camera improvement.
- Get up
early. Autumn mornings are magical as the changing temperatures often create
mist to hang over rivers and valleys. Use
an app to help you find the best times to shoot.
- If you can’t
make it, fake it! Sometimes the picture or footage you want just isn’t there,
but that doesn’t mean you can’t set up your own. Use
props like gourds to create an instant touch of fall.
a polariser to take the edge off bright skies and help deepen the colour of
close up! Autumn isn’t just about sweeping landscapes of warm tones, get
up close to some of that great texture of leaves and wood.
