It rained all day today, which gave me a perfect excuse to stay indoors and work on our income taxes. But by the end of the day I had a good dose of cabin fever and was ready to go outside, rain or not. By about 6:00PM the rain had stopped and a light fog had settled in for the evening. I decided it might be a good time to do a little night shooting in downtown Tupelo.
I was hoping to get some interesting photos of the lights glowing through the fog, but it wasn’t quite dense enough to provide the effect I was looking for. In addition, there was more traffic downtown than I had expected due to a theatre production by the Tupelo Community Theatre that was going on at the Lyric.
Still, I did get quite a few images that I really liked. I used the D700 and my 50mm prime lens, mounted on the tripod so I wouldn’t be at the mercy of the dim light. Andy went with me and we walked around for about an hour before the fog turned to a light sprinkle and we headed back to the car to protect the equipment.
I processed sixteen of the images when we got home, and decided to do them all in black and white–it just seemed to fit the mood. I used Paintshop Photo Pro X4 with Topaz Black & White Effects, and I’m pretty pleased with the results. Let me know what you think!
