My first attempts at misty images in camera(can they be done by processing?).
Wasn't sure about settings and processing - so any advice re either would be welcome. Should I sharpen a misty image for example or leave softish? Done a mono of this too. Mods welcome.
Many thanks to Dave WhiteRose1 and Western Red for mods yesterday and to all for advice re noise. Best to point that out if I'm to use at club!!

I can't decide between them - V1 has a lovely warm 'let's go bimbling in the woods' feel, whereas the mono V2 has a much darker 'don't go bimbling in the woods today' feel to it - almost threatening, but equally good.

The color imparts the mood of the image so much better than the mono. I like the subtle colors and tones in it. V1 for me.

Yes, you can make fake mist in Photoshop.

This to me is less of a mist shot, and more of a contra jour, and perhaps lens flare shot.

You are shooting into the light, so you will have some scattering of light from whatever mist may be there; this gives a low contrast, slightly soft look.

I think for mist, and what I have in my mind is an obvious layer of mist, with beams of light, - maybe not what youre thinking, you need low light at an agle to the mist, so your not shooting into the light.


Regards


Willie

Couldn't resist the challenge Kate so I dug into the archives for something landscape-y and had a tinker. The first shot I have uploaded as a mod is the original image, the second the one with digital mist added, the third (after Willie's comment) with added lens flare.

Thanks for the challenge.

Hi Kate. Nice picture.
I've never tried adding/accentuating mist, so I'll have a crack at it. Mod on it's way, see what you think.

V1 the colour version works for me best, I like the gentle misty mood in this country scene. I know you can add blur and misty effects in free photograph editing programmes like picasa and photofiltre but I haven't really tried it out though so I can't tell you how good they are
