James Artaius uses small but powerful incremental adjustments to drastically improve the results of your hazy shots
Put the punch back into hazy images with Lightroom CC
The Effects and Detail panels are two features of Lightroom CC that, although not new, work together seamlessly to powerfully bring out new details and depth to shots.
They combine a lot of useful but incremental adjustments that include changing contrast, sharpness and noise for a drastically different photograph.
You might find these areas useful when working on a photo like ours here – something hazy, distant, lacking contrast or definition. Sometimes haze can enhance an image, but in this case we have two people towards the right of the frame we want to highlight. The mountains behind the subjects are covered with cloud, which makes them somewhat less impressive.
So we’re going to give this shot a boost of sharpness for a more striking and appealing result.
