Is there a way to simulate filtes via camera setting
« on: December 25, 2009, 05:42:37 PM »
I thought Winjeel posted something a few months ago about how to simulate the use of filters by changing color temperature or other settings within the camera.

I am wondering if there is any way to simulate a Polarized filter. I don't have access to filters.

If not possible any other trick, tips technique to fight morning haze?

Much appreciated any input.

You can sometimes jazz up blue skies with saturation, overall contrast or midtone levels and contrast. However, haze is difficult. Off the top of my head I can't think of anything. I just tried a hazy, distant forest on a picture taken today...made the forest a little better by playing with midtone contrast.

Haze is actual "stuff" in the air ... moisture or dust particulate so it is hard to deal with.
