Love for the Flare

Recently I’ve been loving a bit of camera lens flare action.

“This usually occurs when light enters the camera and hits the sensor or film directly appearing as a polygonal shape – the same shape as the diaphragm of the lens.”

There’s a conflict of views regarding whether a flare ruins or enhances a picture but I’ve found that in the right circumstances a bit of flare can enhance the artistic meaning of a photo. I’ve posted a flare-esq type shot below… cos i have a blog, so why not! See what you think. I personally am loving the flare!

Cheers, Mark
