During the winter, I get to photograph the forest while it slumbers. It is magical and primeval. It whispers its secrets and beckons to enter the world beyond the fog.
These three shots graphically illustrate why I love shooting in the fog. All these photos were shot Friday, at 400 ISO, with a speed of 1/125 and the camera choosing the f-stop to match lighting conditions. Despite the similarities in shooting specs, the photos are all completely different – from low contrast and color to the very vivid. This is due to the fog and its density. One can go only a few hundred yards, and the quality of the fog, and thus the photograph, is completely different. It is not difficult to shoot in the fog and the results can be wonderful.
