Some autumn days begin with a wonderful amount of fog and it’s like dropping a large gray sheet over every place you look. It’s a really cheap photo effect that’s just waiting to be used in your pictures. How, Jack, do I set my camera for foggy conditions? I’d like to get it right since fog is fleeting. Here are a few foggy suggestions: 1. Lock camera on to a tripod and seal it in a large-enough plastic bag or a cover made just for a camera/lens. 2. Fog photos require longer than expected exposure time which accounts for the tripod. Begin with (what else?) f8 with an essposure time of less than one second. 3. Try to include the boundaries of fog or mist. The best way to do this is to position yourself outside the fogged-in area. 4. For a really cool effect, expose for the fog rather than your intended subject. Doing so will usually create a silhouette. When this happens, you will be both pleased and amazed that you were able to get that shot. And all because you read this website. Who thought?? Drop by often for other unexpected, yet very welcome photo tips.
