|Schoodic Peninsula in the fog. If you put a recognizable object in the foreground. It helps set the tone for the photograph.|
Last year, I also wrote a blog on fog. In that blog, I was talking about utilizing aperture priority, as you mode setting. In the present blog, I am now utilizing manual settings. However, the same corrections hold true, you need to dial in positive exposure compensation. Now you may ask, why did I change from utilizing aperture priority mode to manual mode. I believe manual mode gives me better control of what I am photographing. But, a caveat, I still will use aperture priority, and even shutter priority in certain situations.
All the following pictures were taken in manual mode, on a tripod and with a wired shutter release.
We'll start out with West Quoddy light in the fog.
|West Quoddy light in the fog. There was no exposure compensation, and though the histogram is not bad, there is still room to expose to the right.|
|West Quoddy light in the fog. I had change the scene slightly, but the sightings were the same, except I added +1 exposure compensation, and the histogram is exposed more to the right.|
|This is a picture of the light at top of West Quoddy lighthouse. I added +1 exposure compensation and noticed a histogram is exposed to the right, without touching the right side.|
|A dock at the Corea harbor with lobster pots. This is the picture went out any post-processing in Lightroom. Notice that the histogram eggs exposed to the right, there is a lot of room on the left, and there is no clipping.|
