HAZE

 

We’ve all seen that gorgeous streak of light that just wakes up our excitement for all things beautiful. Maybe you’ve seen it on a foggy path in the woods, or maybe a streak of golden window light in an old dusty room. Those little glittering particles of whatever floating in the air create something magic and it’s something I’ve always loved. Now is the fun part. That type of light is everywhere but luckily, there usually aren’t enough dust particles in the air to show it to us. To bring it out a bit more and to show off the gorgeous light in your image, there are a few easy things you can do! Bring some baby powder, fuller’s earth, spray fog, or even just some dusty dirt to sprinkle in the light. The particles in the air will define the ray of light and add a killer mood to your image!

5D III + 35L To make the most of that gorgeous back light coming in the window behind her, I had a ziploc bag full of baby powder that I cut a hole in the corner of and I puffed out into the light before each shot!

5D III + 24L Spray fog! This stuff is the best. The real trick with making it (and baby powder, etc) is to put it in a steak of light that's in between you and a dark background. In the image above, there is fog all over the background but where it really pops is in front of the darker background. When the light hits it, it glows, but it won't pop if that glowing light is in front of something just as bright.
