Fog Photography Image Tips

Fog Photography Image Tips

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.

Nature Photography By Juergen Roth

Nature Photography By Juergen Roth

Monthly Photography Tip: Besides cameras and lenses, a tripod is one of the most important investments for a nature photographer. High quality nature photographs are rarely achieved when hand holding your camera. A tripod is essential for low light during the morning, evening and twilight, for shooting wildlife, for macros and for experimenting with impressionistic photography. It not only steadies your shooting equipment for maximum image quality, it also will help you discover the world of photography. You are more likely to step back, think and compose the photograph. You will ask yourself: do I have a straight horizon, do I have sufficient depth of field or shall I open up the aperture setting to minimize depth of field, are there distracting elements in the foreground or background of my composition, do I even have a composition?

I personally prefer a ball-and-socket head with quick release for easy and fast adjustments. My tripod has no center column and the legs spread independently for setup on uneven terrain. The tripod collapses to almost ground level allowing me to explore ground level objects and shooting from different angles and perspectives. It is not too heavy for the longer photo excursions and trips I often pursue in the national and state parks of New England.

As an alternative, I sometimes bring a bean bag that allows me an easy, inexpensive setup at even lower levels then possible with a tripod. I also use it on rocks or positioning a telephoto lens on the hood or the roof of my car. Ready to go bean bags can be found at local photo dealers. You also can fill up your own 1 or 2 gallon size bag or freezer bag with dried beans. Add beans until the bag is nearly full but still flexible. Remove the air, zip up and you are ready to shoot.
