Foggy Days Part Two

Part two of a foggy days series – there’s something magical about the way fog makes distance disappear…..

One of the most difficult things about doing book cover photography is that often you’re taking shot’s of what’s ‘not there’ – what I mean is that the main subject isn’t filling the frame dead centre, but leaving ‘copy space’ elsewhere for large title/author text and the only thing left from your shot is round the edges. This is a good example.00230065

Same here – acres of empty ‘nothing’, but just enough to leave an impression and a mood. It’s not the way photography is usually done, and it’s quite tricky to ‘see’ the shot until you get used to it.00230061

Finally, something in the centre of the frame drawing some attention with some real detail – you don’t expect consistency do you? In my defence, there’s fog in the blurry distance. Hopefully a cover designer can fit some text in here somewhere!


As always these shots are taken for the book cover market, and all comments, critiques and questions are welcome.

Thanks for looking!
