Thread: Misty Forest in B&W

  1. #1

    Default Misty Forest in B&W

    Shot this when it was still raining using f11 and a slow shutter speed. The shutter speed caused the rain to soften the overall picture. I wanted to capture the mist amongst the trees, giving multi-layers and a soft low contrast look. Converted to B&W in PS. I wanted to grap my film camera, but luckily shot some digital shots first, for when I setup the film camera, the mist was blown away. Shot at Bukit Timah Hill. The few remaining patchs of rainforest left.

    You need a little more contrast or patches that are clear of mist to give the viewer a visual reference to achieve the "multi layered" look that you were trying for. Otherwise, with too much softness it looks more like something out of a very old text book. Maybe some of the technique used in this photo (I know it is in colour but the concepts are valid nonetheless) :
