There are many deciduous trees within the grounds of Akershus Fortress, and this is a good spot to take pictures of vibrant fall colors. Look down, as well as up - it's not just the treetops that are aflame this time of year, the ground is also covered in golden leaves.
The park behind the Royal Palace, with its imposing trees and vast lawns, is another good bet, particularly if you also want people to feature in your photos - the park is always buzzing with life.
A popular destination year round, but the park really comes into its own on a sunny fall day, when the many trees and their flamboyant foliage make a colorful background for the striking sculptures.
A stroll along the Akerselva will also reveal many good subjects for photography, as the river winds its way past old mills, neighborhood parks and hidden fishing spots, under old iron bridges and through many waterfalls. The stretch around the Sawmill Waterfall (Møllerfossene) just north of Grünerløkka is particularly picturesque, and from here you can easily continue onto Old Aker Church and the Our Savior Cemetery - all good spots for taking pictures of fall colors.
For a different perspective on the city, you could also take a mini cruise on the Oslofjord - a great opportunity to check out the many islands there, and take pictures from the water.
The easily accessible forests around Oslo make the capital unique. The metro (line 3) will take you from the city centre to Sognsvann in less than 20 minutes. On the five-kilometre-long walk from Sognsvann to Ullevålseter you can get nature shots of the mixed forest that will seem like you are far into the wilderness.
