I am vacationing in Mexico.  Each morning mist and low clouds settle over the mountains.   I am struggling trying to capture them.   The results don't match what I see.   Any suggestions for settings or post processing to make the mist more dramatic?    Thanks for the help!   j

Maybe under expose. Or use a 6 stop ND for longer exposite. Don’t know. I’d try those if it were me.

 

Mist will fool your autoexposure to believe the scene is too bright, and will adjust so you will get an underexposed image. Probably you should compensate 1-2 stops

Wise advice. Thanks. I learned a long time ago NEVER use flash when there’s a mist unless you want special effects.

Also, when postprocessing, you can emphasize foggy conditions by shoving the "dehaze" slider in the "wrong" direction.
