Do you sometimes see streaks or spots of light in your photos?
Lens flare tends to get a bad rap because it can be distracting and can even ruin a photo. But wait, it doesn’t have to be that way.
When you shoot directly into the sun, especially when it is low on the horizon, you can end up with spots and streaks that you didn’t plan in your photo. How bout using this to create unique and interesting photos? Yes, play with the sun and use lean flare as a point of interest in your composition.
Compose your shot by placing the sun behind a tree, for example, or have it peak behind an object. See what happens!
