Rising Mist

Yesterday, I walked by an online store that sold a dizzying array of interesting Chinese artifacts. But what caught my attention more was a small foggy pool in the store. The owner of the store was very clever in creating the visual effect of a fairyland through the clever layout of lighting and the control of water vapor.

Shooting parameters: Aperture: f/10; Exposure time: 1/15; ISO: 800; Focal length: 127.5mm.

In order to get the desired effect, I changed the camera position several times, spending a total of about half an hour before and after. Admittedly, I can’t say this is the best result because of all the constraints. But it basically satisfied my initial shooting psychology. The rising fog, lingering, as if one is in an illusion, and as if in a fairyland.

Filming date: December 30, 2020.
