Foggy Morning~Day Four
It would be hard for me to understate how exciting it was to photograph in this dense fog, which is a fairly unusual happening in my hometown. The ethereal quality the fog imparts to otherwise ordinary scenes was remarkable. The stable lighting allows one to concentrate on composition. Another fundamental truth of photographing in fog is that your physical distance to the subject matter becomes very important. The closer the subject, the more details are revealed, and vice versa. No zoom lens is going to make that distant tree obscured in the fog any clearer. If you want it clearer, you’ve got to move closer. This was as much fun as I’ve ever had photographing anything. Ever. I hope it happens again soon!
