Threesome

"treesome" would be a nice tittle too :D

That is me hanging on some high trees on a foggy forest.
Went to Peninha - Sintra to shoot some misty and foggy photos, and end on front of the objective.

I chose a low angle to be able to transmit how tall were those trees.. The atmosphere was amazing.

______________________________________

Technique:

Photographing with fog is a bit difficult. The auto exposure measuring can trick you.. causing overexposed or underexposed photos. I had to use Manual mode like I always do.. and experiment a bit.

Using the tripod was essencial, because the light under those tall trees was so poor.

Just placed the tripod on the floor, used selftimer (10 seconds) and climb the slippery trees.

I shot this one in RAW, and before converting to Jpeg, I selected some cold tones in the White balance bar.
