    I was shooting some landscapes here in Afghanistan...It was very hazy.
    Does anyone have any techniques to shoot during hazy conditions???

    Depends on the time of day and the type of haze. Filters will help clear up atmospheric haze (moisture) but can do NOTHING for airborne dust particles. If shooting near midday and the haze is atmoshpheric, employ a low strength warming filter (81A) to darken bluish sunlight reflecting from the moisture particles in the air. If shooting near the golden hour, use a light blue filter to darken the reddish light reflecting from the moisture. Again, if it's dust there's not much that can be done. Also of note, shooting IR near eliminates ALL moisture related haze to a great extent, almost, if not, to the horizon.

    You are most certainly welcome. Just curious are you a service member stationed in Afghanistan?
