Here is a Canon g11 photo sample of fall foliage taken in October of 2012. This was part of a test I did to find out if the Canon G11 is any good. Here is my opinion on the value of the Canon Powershot G11.
APERTURE CONTOL. Use a small lens opening like f/8 to make sure everything is sharply focused. If you include objects that are both close to and far from your viewpoint in your composition, it creates depth in your photo. This gives the viewer's eye a path to follow when looking at the photo.
Is the Canon G11
The 28-140mm 5x zoom lens on the G11 gives you the opportunity to shoot both traditional wide angle landscapes as well as photographing "flatter" compositions using the telephoto setting.
The rule of thirds is a good guideline-There are no rules in photography that can't be broken-to use when shooting fall landscapes. In the photo composition above the grass provided a visual base and an element in the photo to contrast with the colors of the trees.
In the photo below, I intentionally shot the table a little off center to give the photo an overall balance and also to create 3 fairly equal areas of green to contrast with the red foliage in the background.
I titled this page Canon g11 photo sample fall foliage because that's really all this simple post is about, a few nice sample images for you to enjoy, plus a few general tips on shooting fall foliage with a point and shoot camera like the G11. It was a nice warm day early in the fall, overcast but still a pleasant day to be outside and photograph the Fall foliage.
I try to have a camera with me wherever I go.
In this case it wasn't my Canon 5d Mark III or my Samsung cell phone camera. The G11 is classified as a premium compact camera by Canon.
The G11 is still capable of taking quality photographs (I can shoot in "raw" mode too) and this Canon compact fits snugly in my pocket. I consider these two photographs flat images. Normally I like to show more depth with landscape photography but I focused on the colors and patterns.
You may be wondering when the Canon Powershot G11 was first available in the marketplace. Here are the release dates of the later "g" series of Powershots, the Canon G9 through G12 cameras
The G11, its predecessor the G10 in 2008, and its successors the G12 in 2010 and G15 in 2012 only had minor differences in design. The G1X and G1X Mark II with the much larger sensor were bigger upgrades to the Canon "G" series. Here's a table of the release dates.
|G9||2007||12 Megapixel. Digic 3 Processor. 35-210mm Lens.|
|G10||2008||14.7 Megapixel. Digic 4 Processor. 24-120mm Lens|
|G11||2009||10.0 Megapixel. Digic 4 Processor 24-120mm Lens|
|G12||2010||10.0 Megapixel. Digic 4 Processor 24-120mm Lens|
The G11 and its siblings are now outdated in terms of the technology you can get in point and shoot cameras. It's a good idea at this point to see what alternatives are available.
I enjoyed taking photos with the Powershot G11. I love it's fit-in-your-pocket size and using it in RAW mode more than anything else of all its features. Times have changed and I upgraded to the far superior G1X Mark II since this article was originally written The 1.5 inch sensor gives superior quality for a compact camera. If you're considering upgrading to a Canon DSLR camera, I highly recommend the Canon 90D. I love mine!
