how to remove fog from a live stage photo

I am having a problem shooting bands on stage when they are using a lot of fog from the fog machines....this only seems to be a problem with digital cameras....I haven't ever had the problem with film. It is the worst when you need to use flash. Sometimes it also effects the focus and sharpness both in flash and non flash shots. Is there a way to avoid this hazy look??? How can I remove it from existing photo files?

repost? why would you want to re-post?

Do you work with the band? Perhaps you can ask them to turn down the fog or turn it off completely while you are shooting.

Removing fog in post-processing is probably extremely difficult, if not impossible. You can try selectively rubber-band each region and try applying different brightness/contrast to each region. Or manually paint each parts of the photo with the right color.

Personally, I don't see how you could have gotten away with fog in your film. I don't think it would make a difference between film and digital. Perhaps, they used more fog in their recent performances. Try using both film and digital camera during the same performance and see if you get any difference. If film is really better, perhaps it's easier to shoot film and scan in the results.
