I was recently asked how I achieve haze in my photos. Creating a haze effect in your photos is probably easier than you think :O) Don’t forget to remove any lens guard you may have since one of it’s job is to prevent haze.
1. Find the sun. Unfortunately, it would be really hard to achieve haze in your photo without some great sun.
3. Shield your lens with your hand. You want to cover your lens like you are shielding your eyes from the sun. Just use your hand and place it on the side of your lens so that the sun isn’t pouring in.
**If for whatever reason you have more haze in your picture than you would like, you can correct it in post-processing by adding more “black” to your photo. Thank you to Laurie for teaching me that valuable trick!
Go out and have fun with the sun :O)
