Tuesday Tips & Pics - Malibu in the Fog

 Monday, January 2, 2012

I got a lot of positive feedback from my first photo meme, Photo Tip Tuesday.  However, I also had a lot of people tell me that they really wanted to link up but couldn't think of any photo tips to share.  So I wanted to make the link up a little more inclusive, while still encouraging people to share tips with each other.  So introducing the first week of "Tuesday Tips & Pics." Share a tip, or just share a pic! Simple as that.  Visit other entries and learn from their tips, or simply gather inspiration from other's pictures.

Tips
I went up to Malibu the other day to take some pictures and was surprised to find a thick blanket of fog over the beach.  It was really unique--I had never shot in such thick fog before.  It was tough to get interesting pictures, instead of just thickly gray ones.  It helped to change my white balance to "cloudy" instead of leaving it on auto.  It also really helped to find specific objects to focus on instead of just general landscapes.

I don't know what these spiky little dead looking flowers are, but I love photographing them!

These are wonderful photograph Jaymi!
I especially love the first one. Fog is most definitely difficult to work with, but when you can get it right it is wonderful, as you have so nicely done here.

Thank you so very much for sharing with us today at The Creative Exchange.

Have a wonderful evening!

I agree, these are absolutely stunning shots

Looks like you had a great day of photography. I live in Seattle so shooting in gray conditions is nothing new - I do get tired of those featureless skies though! I like that your shots are a range of subjects and compositional styles. Great job!

These photos are fantastic! I also love those little flowers. The seagull pics are both beautiful (and a little gross haha... those guys should clean up after themselves ;) Happy New Year to you.

Beautiful pics. I'm excited to link up!

rachel January 5, 2012 at 2:41 PM  

this is a great tip, Jaymi. I always leave my white balance on auto and edit in lightroom, but occassionally I have set a custom white balance. I should really try some of the preset ones! thank you for showing off your shot!

Jaime January 5, 2012 at 2:50 PM  

Beautiful pictures!! ...especially love the first seagull shot...the 'stair step' really drew me in.

alicia January 5, 2012 at 6:46 PM
