Photo of the Week 124

Photo of the Week 124
Now that Christmas is over, the rest of winter has now begun.  It's the first Friday in a long string of cold and miserable days ahead.  Because it's so dark and miserable, we would like to remind you that there's some light at the end of the tunnel.  In this case, there's four lights in the darkness as our "Photo of the Week."

Some of the most mystical and interesting photographs out there are photos which are taken in the fog.  Since that's not a common occurrence around here, when the fog came up one night, I grabbed my camera and went out for photos despite the cold weather and temperatures.

Choosing the right location for a spontaneous foggy photo shoot was interesting.  We took to driving around and looking for something which looked interesting in the late night fog.  The lights of the mall parking lot ended up working out the best so we stopped there and set up.

It was a very cold night so we bundled up with cold weather gear and with blankets to stave off the chill.  This shot required the tripod and the cable release so I had to stand outside and freeze for a while to get it.

When I got back home, I was disappointed to see that this photo was full of noise.  It wasn't going to work the way it was.  I shelved it for a few months in the hopes that I could recover it at some later date.  When I returned to it, I found that I could easily remove the noise with a new tool and technique for processing.

This photo felt like it needed to cool down and darken down when I got processing it fully.  After I was done, all you can easily see is the four different street lights in the parking lot.  The rest of the photo has a dark and mystical quality to it.
