So, you'll mainly use the dehaze filter to eliminate haze from your images. Well, this video shows you how to do just the opposite.
How did I come up with this? During one of my tours in Japan we always go to the Tsurui Feeding station to take pictures of the crane birds. It was a sunny day and it hadn't snowed for a couple of days. That means that all the fluffy snow had been trampled by the birds and we got a lot of ugly shadows and structures on the ground. Not your ideal situation to create a simple and soft image.
With some snow in front of the lens, you'll be able to create a haze and hide the ugly foreground. I've been testing what angle was the best and once I've found it, I called the clients and showed them how and where they could do the same. Problem was that I didn't take the image because I wanted to show the clients as fast as possible before the birds would leave. And to be honest, when I guide a tour I'm there for the customers and not for my own portfolio.
And so I came home with an image of the cranes with an ugly foreground...
Of course I'd rather shoot the image directly in the field, but sometimes it's just not possible.
