The fog is minimalist, it only reveals what is essential.
A while ago someone brought to my attention the fact that I rarely show a portrait image, and that I should remember to explore that orientation as well. With that in mind, I have started a small, solo project taking portraits of the winter versions of the trees in the Sacramento area.
Even though this winter’s fog has been perfect to hide the visual clutter typical of city parks, I was not able to leave, out of the frame, this UFO, which, I have been told, crashed at the Arroyo park a long time ago… But I think that it complements the frame very well.
Location: Arroyo Park, Davis, CA, USA;
Equipment: Nikon D750, AF-S NIKKOR 24-70mm F2.8G ED, tripod;
Settings: 24 mm, f/8 1/8s ISO 100;
Tips: for this kind of photograph, use a wide angle, get close, use spot metering to calculate the exposure and expose for the tree (this will overexpose the fog and make it brighter).
