On a cold November morning in Rexburg Idaho Jenn and I went out for a shoot early in the morning. Our plans were to work with the sunrise and experiment with a new lens I had bought the day before but we were surprised to wake up and find a thick fog covering the valley. We couldn’t see more than 200 ft in front of us, and the sun was a distant orb glowing dimly in the sky yet it provided wonderful natural lighting.

The shoot was an awesome experience with the fog providing a natural diffuser to the harshness of the sunlight and the brisk morning speeding us on our way. The temperature stayed at a consistent 15 degrees through our shoot and Jenn frequently had to cover her face with her hands and coat to keep warm. I quickly discovered how valuable a pair of warm gloves would have been for the shoot when my trigger finger became stiff and numb from exposure to the cold. It made every opportunity to hop in the car and find a new location to shoot wonderful. Despite the cold and interesting weather the shoot was awesome, and Jenn was wonderful to work with. See for yourself just a small sample of the shoot.

Hey, I love it! The early mornings, even when freezing, were always my favorite parts of Rexburg. Because of the fog and the lighting. These pictures are amazing. I absolutely love the contrast of colors, especially when it comes to her eyes! Keep up the great work!!

Thank you! It really was a great morning. Even though I couldn’t feel my fingers by the end of the shoot we still had a blast. Those brisk morning are remembered in a bitter sweet sense. They sure do wake you up when you are walking to school at 6:30 in the morning.
