This is the second part of my adventures in the fog series I began yesterday. I was expecting fog on Thursday morning and I wasn’t disappointed. The fog was thicker and lasted longer. I paid better attention to my equipment this time and popped my incident meter into my coat pocket. I went out with the 50mm lens mounted on my Bessaflex and the 35mm AF mounted on my Nikon N8008s. And I skipped my coffee again.
I took this shot along the north shore of Emerald Lake with my Bessa/50 combination. This image really captures the mood, just the kind of photo I was hoping for.
This photo is similar to the image from yesterday. I shot it from the same spot (the opposite end of the lake) using my Bessa/50 on Monday morning. I think yesterday’s image is the better of the two. I think the 85 is more intimate and captures the mood better.
I used Tri-X rated at 1250 ISO for all the images shot with my Bessa. I have more goodies from the same roll that I’ll save for another time. Meanwhile, I still have half a roll left in my N8008s. Maybe I’ll finish the roll and develop it next week.
Shooting in the fog has been an interesting adventure of discovery. It’s fun shooting B&W film in flat lighting. And I love having fun.
PS — Speaking of fun, have you ever tried autofocus in the fog. Now that’s fun. lol
