Have you ever looked at one of your photos and wondered if there was something you could do to make it look more dramatic? I know I have. Fortunately, I'm a big fan of the tutorials of Serge Ramelli and I've learned a very cool way to add fog, or haze if you prefer, to a photo with a very natural look.
By the way, if you haven't signed up on Serge's site, I highly recommend it. In addition to 200 free lessons like the one I'm about to show you below, you'll find free resources, daily tips and links to some great gear as well as his professional retouching and processing instruction packages.
Okay, so getting back to what's coming up in this video: This tutorial is going to show you a really slick way to selectively add haze to a photo in Lightroom and Photoshop using, of all things, the Dehaze filter. It works using SmartObjects and masking, so switching between Lr and Ps is a piece of cake and the edits are nondestructive.
As always, you'll learn a lot of photo retouching and workflow tips along the way, so be prepared to take notes or bookmark the video for future reference. Take 10 minutes to watch this one. You'll be glad you did. Here's the full video:
