Photo Tips for better photography picture in foggy and misty conditions:
Photo Tip #1: The camera meter is easily tricked by fog. Metering without compensation will underexpose the fog photography picture. Therefore we have to adjust the exposure. A good ballpark number is +1 stop and exposure bracket at 1/2 or 1/3 stops.
Photo Tip #2: The autofocus system of your camera has a hard time finding a focus point in foggy conditions. Switch to manual focus instead and use the magnifying feature, properly adjusting the focus and pinpoint it on the spot.
Photo Tip #3: Incorporating foreground features in our compositions will make for better and more interesting photography images. Ensure your elements in front of your lens are in focus; those elements will become your main subjects while the rest of the composition disappears into the foggy scenery.
Photo Tip #4: Avoid camera shake by using a tripod. One also might increase the ISO setting to increase shutter speeds for a better chance of a quality image when hand-holding the camera.
Photo Tip #5: Routinely check your lens for water droplets or condensation and keep the gear dry; those droplets do not make for a better photograph.

Photo Tip #14 of 20: Don't let the horizon fall dead center in the picture. It most likely always creates a boring image (exceptions are beautiful landscape reflections) Instead place the horizon low to enhance the feel of spatial depth of the open landscape or to emphasize a dramatic cloud formation. For images with stronger foregrounds and weaker cloud or sky formations a horizon in the upper third of the image is more preferred. >>> LEARN MORE

Photo Tip #9 of 20: Use the Rule of Thirds as a guideline or starting point for your composition. Draw a raster board over the picture in your mind or check your camera manual to see if it is available as a feature on your digital camera. In this seascape photography image I placed the horizon low because the orange sky (2/3 of the image) was more appealing then the blue cold Atlantic Ocean. The bird in the upper right corner and the early sunlight striking the rock in the lower 1/3 of the picture added the icing to the cake >>> Find More Photo Tips

What is the appropriate aperture setting?
Small apertures are set by choosing large f/stop numbers like f/11 and larger. Those camera settings provide maximum depth of field.
Large apertures on the other hand (small f-stop number like f/5.6 and smaller) minimize depth of field.

Heading south of Boston on Route 3 brings you right to Cape Cod, a pristine summer get away and vacation destination for many New Englanders. I routinely make the 1 and a half hour drive down to the Cape to capture its beautiful coastal scenery at all times of the day and in all seasons. During my last photo trip this summer I returned to Paine's Beach and Landing to photograph an oyster farming setting with baskets, cases, and beds. This evening clear skies dominated and coincided with low tide and a full moon rising across Cape Cod Bay. The sun was already very low painting the beach in beautiful hues. I found Jellyfish on the beach that beautifully reflected the sunset light. The sun was about to sink below the horizon when I ... LEARN MORE.
