With all this fog around in the UK at the moment, it’s difficult to see past the inconvenience of it. However, this misty weather can be used to your advantage by making ordinary places moody and interesting in photos – so get your phone out!
A sunset over Poole’s harbour looks beautiful in sunshine, but perhaps even better through the fog. Still lakes, rivers and creeks all lend themselves to foggy photos too.
When the sun is behind hazy mist, photos of beaches take a whole new tone. Particularly if you are on a clifftop where the fog can create a ‘waterfall’ effect as it drifts off the edge and out to sea.
Go for a winter stroll through the fog in the mornings for some different angles.
Top tip: The lack of harsh sunlight makes photos easier to take. So don’t stay indoors when the sun is in, because the lack of shadows is doing your photos a favour!
If you find yourself near snowy mountains on a grey day, the low clouds settling and sinking around them make for interesting and contrasting scenes.
What would be boring photos in the sun, become intriguing sights beneath the dense fog we’ve been having.
Don’t let your photos use up your phone’s memory – get them printed on a Postsnap card to send to yourself, or someone in your phone book for them to enjoy.
