    Stunning. What was the camera/lens?

    How did you create the ‘hazy’ summer feel?!

    Thanks Chris, the camera was a Canon 50D and the lens combo’s were; 24-70mm f2.8, 16-35mm f2.8, 50mm f1.8 I think.

    The look was created by shooting through a plastic cd case - the refractions in the light and the thickness of the plastic give a glow that accentuates areas of intense light.

    That’s genius. I’ve got some similar effects by breathing on the lens. But this seems much more logical. good work!
