Fog reduces the contrast of a scene dramatically. It is ideal for landscape photos. For best results I would recommend shooting in RAW. There is a much more leniency in changing the exposure in post-production and most importantly the white balance when shooting RAW. The auto white balance (AWB) can easily be fooled by fog. Adding a slightly blue cast to the images can enhance the mood of the photos. It is usually required to use a tripod when photographing in foggy conditions. Without adding noise to the photo you wil usually get an exposure that is too long for hand held photography. In my case it was at night and only a little bit of lights from the street lights. As always when using a tripod, remember to turn off optical stabilisation.
This photo was taken in May 2013 with a Canon 50D and a Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM
Camera Settings: f/8.0, 10 seconds and ISO 100 Foggy night in streets of Stellenbosch
