Landscape Shot Question
« on: June 21, 2012, 12:19:47 AM »
Hey everyone, I've always wanted to ask this.  I do quite a bit of landscape photography.  This afternoon, say about 6:15pm in Ohio, it was hazy, hot, and humid (a 3 H's day).  I was on top of Mt. Jeez near Lucas, OH and I had my 100-400L lens, with a UV haze filter on, and shot southeast across the landscape at a red barn, at 400mm, f/16, on a tripod.  The two shots I took were still incredibly hazy.  Normally I just deal with it post-processing but it takes a long time and I'm getting tired of it.  Is there something I can do on-camera and while I take the shot?  Thanks!

Normally you can't. When it is - as you called it- a 3H's days, there is a lot of haze. You see it with your eyes and you see it in your images.

All you can do it pump up your images in post, but it will never give you the same results as on a non-3H's day.

Good luck.

Thanks.  I guess when you compress all that haze, you can really see it.  Post-processing will continue  8)
