p.1 #1 · Foggy Nickerson Beach


Autumn is a time Iím always on the lookout for fog as itís condition I love to take photos in. The nice soft light allows me to play with color, contrast and the lack of it. Sunday morning we had a nice thick mist falling and I headed to Nickerson Beach to see what I could find. I think I saw 3 people the whole morning allowing me to take my time with my work. It also allowed the birds to become used to me and eventually a pair of oystercatchers walked right up to me. That was a treat I have not had since March. Iíll share those photos another time.

In taking the photos I exposed to the right leaving some room above pure white in the histogram. As I processed these photos, I adjusted the blacks to get a nice look and something close to what I remember. Our minds play tricks with us in these types of conditions and sometimes we see a black that is not there.

Comments and suggestions welcome,

Morris

Nice set Morris. I agree, a nice, thin fog can be fun to shoot in. When it gets heavy, and you cannot see anything 20 yards away, that can be tougher.
