The Tip Off
Capturing mood imagery in photography is achieved through applied techniques and filters. Of course, subject selection, exposure, and compelling composition are the most important elements in creating evocative imagery. When the light is marginal, such as pre-dawn, dawn, and late afternoon to sunset until an hour after sunset, are always good times to work. Certain times of the year consistently create low-lying fog in cove areas and valleys. In early spring and early fall, when the air temperature cools at night and warms during the day, you get ground fog. Because fog tends to separate elements, these are good times to get that single tree, fence line fading into the fog, or sun breaking through the mist, creating "god rays."
