I've photographed the Golden Gate bridge with the fog moving-in around it. Likewise trees, rocks, etc. You simply need to make sure the fog is in zone 7-8 so that it will print white and not gray. You have to base your exposure on those things that are not in the fog as well. So a good spot meter really helps. Or an incident meter. An averaging reflected meter will tend to make the fog appear gray and lifeless. Jim At 05:40 PM 9/8/2004, Leigh Solland wrote: >You're on, Eric. > >Hmm. We should talk about something on topic.
