It was foggy all day so I drove around to see what I could see. A few times every week, I pass by this old boreen and often stop to grab a quick shot.
Photographic rules would say that you shoot this boreen on a foggy morning at an aperture to capture a large depth of field, thereby retaining clarity from the foreground to the background. However, I liked the mistiness and the softness of the scene, so I shot it at F1.4. This kept a small slice of the scene sharp and the rest of it soft. I didn’t want the viewers eye to be distracted by other parts of the image – I wanted them to be drawn straight down this boreen.
On my workshops I discuss the various techniques I use to capture the landscape in all it’s subtle beauty.
