There's something particularly satisfying about getting an image right in camera, but this photographer took it to new levels, dragging a fog machine into the forest to set up the shot his client needed.
Coming to you from Tim Shields, this great video follows him as he goes over the top to get the image his client wants. The client asked for an image of fog in the forest with rays of light shining through, something that Shields didn't have and that would be particularly difficult to Photoshop. So, instead of waiting and hoping for a foggy day, he brought the fog to the forest, renting a large fog machine and power generator and grabbing a friend to help him with the project. Shields smartly chose a day with little wind, but he still faced a few challenges; in particular, the machine was heavy and cumbersome and he had to contend with dragging the cord over uneven forest floor. Still, it seems the effort was worth the result, as the image went on the win an award, and it seems that the client was quite pleased with it Check out the video above to see Shields' effort.
