This image was taken at the Altenburg Castle in Germany at the end of last year.  It was a very cold and foggy night, which really set the tone for the shoot.  It looked like we had special effects going due to the flood lights that lit up the fog.  That being said, when you are handed an opportunity to shoot, it's important you understand the essential aspects for lighting so you can get the results you seek...


Camera settings: Nikon D800, 1/40 sec at f/4.0, 16mm at ISO 5000, flash did not fire.  Taken at 9:43pm.
