May 13, 2010, Foggy Morning

There was some dense fog this morning. I can usually see McGraw Tower at Cornell from the building where I work.  When I looked in that direction, there was no sign of the building.  I had to move a lot closer for this photo.

Lessons Learned:
  • Fog is an interesting and fun element in photography.  It can be used as another type of filter.  If I want more of a filter, I move further from the object and it fades.  If I need more clarity I move closer to the object.  It can create all kinds of interesting effects. 
 Photo details: Exposure time 1/50 sec, Aperture f8.0, ISO 100, Focal Length 36 mm, Lens Canon EF 17-40mm, handheld, circular polarizer filter.

I really like foggy shots. I agree with you, fog is interesting. I've never thought of it as a filter but that's true. I like this shot with the lamps and the lines on the ground which lead to the tower. I also like the fact that there aren't people in the shot. Nice work!

Really good! Love that effect of light and foggy background with blurry structures ...
