Outstanding Shots of Fog and Mist

by David Peterson 3 comments

Foggy scenes are ethereally beautiful and seem like they ought to just take themselves. But fog is tricky--it can sap contrast and color, which may result in images that look flat and dimensionless. Don't give up though--try putting something in the foreground, or try focusing on those beautiful foggy day light rays. And check out this list of outstanding foggy day images to see what really works for these challenging shoots.
