p.1 #1 · Shooting in Fog


The last couple days here in the upper midwest, we have had some of the thickest, most constant fog ever. I want to take my gear out and get some cool shots, but I am worried about the essentially 100% humidity. Shooting with a D7000, D5100 and various lenses.

Am I safe? Tips and Tricks?

Is this really a serious question?

Black and white time! If you have some plants that emit heroic amounts of steam that's cool at a time like this.

Yes it was. In the words of the "monkey" - take off your skirt and start shooting!

D7000 is weather sealed. Shouldn't be an issue either way, unless condensation is forming fast like you're in a sauna.

No problems shooting in fog. It gives always nice opportunities.

Let your equipment equalize/acclimate and there should be few problems....don't forget to do the same when going back inside....

Even condensation on a lens can be interesting on a D300.

Fog and snow both help simplify a scene. Here in Colorado we have fog about once a year, for about 2 hours. Fortunately we have snow for a bit longer. Get out and shoot in the stuff, it's magical.

Peace,

Todd

If you are afraid of condensation, go get a chemical handwarmer from the local hardware emporium. This little bit of heat will keep condensation far far away.

A few years ago we had heavy fog over snow. What it did in the woods was magic.

I would be happy to hold your undies at the end of my fireplace lighter. Maybe the flames against a backdrop of fog would be really cool.

You would not believe the conditions I shoot in out here in the Dakotas. I love fog, especially heavy ice fog, the kind that hangs around for days at a time. I don't worry about it and it's never harmed a camera or lens.

Bring a microfiber cloth along to wipe off the front element if you need to, and maybe another one to wipe down the camera when you're done.

If you minimize sudden and significant temperature changes for your gear then the humidity should not be an issue. Otherwise you encourage condensation.
