Get out early and capture sunrise scenes at their most magical
01 Planning Check the weather forecast the evening before a shoot. Some sites predict mist and visibility information. Otherwise, look for clear, cool, still nights, as these are the ideal conditions for mist to form. 02 Location Use your local knowledge or hunt online for a good spot. Mist often forms over large bodies of water and in dense woodlands. Set your alarm early, so you can set up well before sunrise. 03 Camera considerations Use a tripod and hone your composition with a mid-telephoto lens. Mist can fool your meter, so check the histogram and apply a degree of positive exposure compensation if needed.
