Passion for photography often takes Neil Burnell to remote areas with stunning sceneries. For his ongoing project Mystical, he photographed an incredible Wistman’s Wood in England. The name of this wood reportedly means “eerie” or “haunted,” and looking at the images, I sure understand why. Neil’s photos look like illustrations of fairy-tales, and it’s easy to imagine fairies dancing around tangled, gnarled, moss-covered trees.
I needed a landscape photo of a foggy forest on sunny day, where beams of sunlight were streaming through the trees and creating beautiful sun rays. The only problem was that it was summer and there was no fog to be had.
So I decided to rent a fog machine and see if we could make enough fog to simulate real fog. For this task I enlisted the help of my friend Chris Collacott, and together we created a pretty cool image. Here is how we did it.
Anybody who’s ever ordered anything substantial from B&H will likely, at some point, receive a printed catalogue. This is essentially an inch thick (or bigger) 300+ page book featuring every product in B&H’s inventory. I’ve received them myself in the past. It started after ordering my first “Pro” lens. I didn’t ask for them, and after receiving the second I wanted no more.
Having to throw them out is a terrible waste, and not throwing them out when a new one arrives is simply taking up space on the shelf that could be otherwise better used. There is an easy way to stop the printed catalogues from showing up regularly on your doorstep, though. All you need do is simply fill in this form on the B&H website.
