2-14-1988 Paul B. Johnson State Park Mississippi-Toyo 8x10M camera-Kodak Tri X Pan Pro 8x10 film- Kodak HC110 developer. Early in the morning arriving at this scene at daylight increases the chances for fog and mist are greatly increased. Fog and mist add depth and layers to scene, providing greater tonal variety and a greater sense of depth to the scene. Most of my photography is done at dawn or shortly after. I love the look and the feel of the air. It is quite then, easy to set up an 8x10 camera without being in anyone's way. it is so peaceful early in the day. It feels healthy. The landscape has rejuvenated itself overnight just like your body does when you sleep. Now a new day is upon us and the beauty lies before my eyes, birds, dragon flies, bullfrogs and the slight breeze in the trees provide a backdrop of wonderful wake up sounds as a new day begins.
