I ran a little late the other day. Because when I woke up, I saw we had had freezing rain overnight. My last days in Mono are ever more beautiful.
(You really have to see those at their original size to get the effect)
Fog is low contrast. Low contrast, as I said the other cay, can be beautiful.
A few tips:
- Expose on auto, if you like – but since this is tricky light, do be ready to turn the exposure up or down in post-processing to get exactly what you were seeing.
- Avoid creating a high contrast image by using your “levels” or “blacks” control.
- Compose carefully.
- Avoid “too-selective” focus. f/5.6 did it for me on my long lens (70-200).
And do shoot detail, too.
Nature can be beautiful, as long as you keep your eyes open for that detail; that sense of wonder that makes people write books about magic.
I really love the second image.
Glad I am not waking up to these sights.
Indeed. Even now it is just 1C. It’s almost May!
