Canon vs Nikon: Which is better?
One camera setting that ruins your pictures
(and more, keep reading):
 

Unlike other websites, we don't try to pitch DSLRs, lenses, and other gear, while collecting sales commission. We don't sell photography tutorials, books, DVDs and courses, while promising that your photography will improve only if you buy what's being promoted.

Instead, we have other people, who've already become great photographers, share with you what they learned, what gear they use, which products really work and which are useless, which techniques work and which don't.

It's all completely unbiased. Our users simply have no reason to lie to you. They are people just like you.

And we provide a free platform for you and them to communicate. So you get to discover this information straight from the source, from people just like you, not from editors of some magazine or sales reps of some company.

This is what make us different from other photography websites out there that try to sell you something while claiming they are trying to help you.

Among our users, we have some of the most talented photographers in the world share advice that you won't find even in the most expensive subscription magazines. That's because some of them only post on our website, so you won't find this information anywhere else! Some of them post under an alias, others disclose their studio name, it's up to them. But in either case you get to read and discover photography techniques that will make you very good at taking pictures.

If you are a beginner, intermediate, advanced, or a professional photographer, then the benefits of signing up for our free daily photography forum digest are:

• We cover both film and digital photography.

• We talk about professional (D)SLR cameras, mirrorless cameras, mid-range/prosumer models, point-and-shoot, and camera phones.

• We cover all types of photography from portraits to landscapes to action shots to macro photography. (Which one interests you the most? Stop and ask yourself right now. You'll need to be able to answer that in just a minute. No matter what you shoot, you'll get better at just that. Read below to find out why.)

• We cover all aspects of photography from picking gear to composition to working with models, and everything in between.

• Each week you'll be receiving new tips and techniques on how to take the kind of pictures that will make your friends, relatives and peers just stare in amazement, speechless, when they see your work. Yep! That's how good your photography will become.

• Daily, you'll be receiving a photography forum digest with the latest photography tips, tricks, reviews and discussions.

• If you ever have a question or need help, you can always ask, and we'll cover your question in the following newsletter issue.

• And of course, it's all completely FREE!

• Let me repeat that. Since for some reason a lot of people contact us asking if the membership is really free: we are a social website for photographers, so we don't sell anything, and we don't charge any fees. It's as simple as that.

Enter your name and e-mail address below, and you'll be instantly added to our photography mailing list distribution. Right away, you'll get access to more photography-related material (pictures, tips, tricks, reviews) than contained in all photography books and magazines you could ever buy. And you'll get all that for free.

Don't delay! Join the best photography community on the Internet.

Can anyone direct me to a good tutorial in how to remove/reduce haze/fog from a picture using either of these programs? I also have the Topaz and Nik Collections.
I did a search, but came up empty for all of those people that say you should do a search before posting a question.

Here is one I found for Photoshop
http://www.ephotozine.com/article/how-to-remove-fog-from-a-photo-in-photoshop-14809

In LR I usually fiddle with all sliders until I see something worth pursuing then try anything to enhance it.

Just a note.

Many times photos will appear hazy or foggy even on Non Foggy days. This happens for a variety of reasons and is a symptom of a needed color correction. One way to correct this is with a Curves adjustment layer in PS. I typically will do this manually but there is an Auto color correct in curves that works pretty well most of the time.

Regards,

Russ

In lr5 sliding the contrast to the right will help.

I did a thread on this about a year ago. I don't know why your search didn't find it. I didn't get any good suggestions but I'll look in my data to see if I can.

There was a good article in Photoshop Elements Mag a couple of years ago that gave one good procedure that worked in some cases. I didn't find it generally useful.

Ah, found it: http://www.uglyhedgehog.com/t-45030-1.html

Simple solution: get Adobe RAW, import your images through it and use the clarity slider. This works for every situations and can be used with all file formats. You do not need any other product and adobe RAW is free!
