Rain and wind shouldn’t stop you from snapping some great photos this fall, especially if you hit the streets with an umbrella in hand. In addition to shielding you from rain, umbrellas can be used as a prop in your photos, as long as you’re in the mood to get creative.

Transparent Umbrellas

If you want to get amazing close-up photos and portraits with an umbrella, you can’t go wrong with a transparent model. They’ll perfectly fit any outfit and put an emphasis on your face and surroundings, not the umbrella itself.

Going the Distance

If you want great photos taken from the distance, get vibrant fall foliage in the frame, and pose with a colorful umbrella in the middle of the photo.

Umbrella Street

Is there a street or an alley in your city decorated with dozens of colorful umbrellas? If that’s the case, this is the best place to take a photo holding an umbrella this fall, or any time of the year, for that matter.

Leaves + Umbrellas

Yellow leaves and umbrellas are both symbols of the fall, so you should think of creative ways to get them in a single frame and create the ultimate autumn photograph.
