Fall one of best times to take photos, says Corner Brook photographer

Fall one of best times to take photos, says Corner Brook photographerCorner Brook photographer Tom Cochrane loves to make the most out of the fall season with his camera.

He said this time of year can be the easiest for anyone wanting to have fun taking pictures.

"It's not just leaves, its the way light moves in this time of year," said Cochrane.

"It's a lot easier to work with because with the sun directly overhead in the summer…the shadows are lot harsher and a lot more difficult to work with."

Like many people, Cochrane relies on his cellphone to capture photos at the ready, but also uses higher-end gear. (Submitted by Tom Cochrane)


Cochrane said the fall colours are a natural playground for photographers.

The leaves may be dying but the trees come alive with colour in western Newfoundland this time of year. The downside is the chance to grab that great shot is short.

"When all those colours are changed you are barely going to notice the change until it hits you in the face," Cochrane told the CBC's Corner Brook Morning Show.

"Then that smack in the face is only going to last a couple of days."





Cochrane says 'You do get those special pinks in the clouds...it's just a switch from what you see in the evening when you can actually watch it in the morning.' (Submitted by Tom Cochrane)


Once the leaves are on the ground they give you a fun prop to work with.

"You've got these leaves which are super fun and crunchy so naturally you just want to kick them and play with them," said Cochrane.

"You can do all sorts of things with them."

Cochrane said he's no different than most people and his cellphone is probably his primary camera these days because it's the one he carries all the time.

​"It's way easier to take that out of my pocket every day … than to carry my much larger camera with me all the time," said Cochrane.

The only caution he has is to make sure you have enough storage space on your cellphone. Delete photos that you don't like or don't need.

He said that all great photos come from taking the time to stop and look around.

Cochrane said most times it could be something happening during your daily routine.

We're working in a digital age and Cochrane said it's best to take as many pictures as you want.

"Practice makes perfect,"  said Cochrane.

"It's not just the environment but also the people who are also capturing the environment is all part of the fun."

Living along Newfoundland's west coast affords Cochrane plenty of opportunities to shoot the sea. (Submitted by Tom Cochrane)
