Photography today in the rain and fog: fantastic! I found myself thinking about the post I wrote some time back about how to photograph in the rain, because that was definitely what I was doing today: rain pants, rain jacket, umbrella, towel to wipe camera off, one camera on very wet tripod, one canvas near-waterproof Domke F2 camera bag.
The fog showed up today on the shores of Lake Pontchartrain as the warmth of the last few days met the new cold front blowing in: lots of wind and spray but the fog was beautiful! Working fast, trying to see, shoot, and see again, working against time as I knew the fog wouldn’t last.
A great morning of shooting in Fountainbleau State Park. Out on the edge of the lake in the fog, no one around, the whole place to myself. Looking, shooting, looking again. Wiping off the gear. Socks and shoes soaking wet. Moving again, seeing something else to try. Lots of failed experiments and a few successes: we live for the successes, don’t we?
