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!
Most photographers I know never take pictures of their kids and family events etc because they spend all day looking through the viewfinder and lugging camera gear around, so on their days off they don’t much fancy it… but then they end up with no pictures of their kids. So, even if it’s a point and shoot, take a camera with you and you may even end up getting something great.
I’ve attached a shot taken yesterday at the beach of my son… I really like it and I’m glad that I took my camera.
