Photographing in the fog with his dog and a smartphone

Photographing in the fog with his dog and a smartphone

This guy is using his smartphone to photograph the fog. I’m using a ‘real’ camera to photograph him photographing in the fog.

The fog was starting to lift and some of the sun started to shine through the fog.

Earlier, it used to be fairly heavy fog. A quick breeze with the warming sun and the fog started to lift. We went from “pea soup” to “oh that’s nice!”. We went from not really a photo, to there is something that could be interesting. The “trick” is still to be able to show some of the fog… I could remove the fog and add some blacks but then the mood would be gone.
