Getting out there is the key to getting the best shots. There is no substitute for determination. Today when I got down to the valley it was really socked in with dense fog. At the north end I thought it could be a total loss, and I really didn't have time anyway. As I drove south, the fog was not so dense, and Hooks was right at the roadside ready to pose.
Thin fog can provide really interesting light. Hooks provided the pose with a slight head tilt showing some expression, always a key. Partial natural frame, slight up angle, and the background is fogged out of focus. Something a little different. Maybe more engaging. These small things add up.
