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

Street

A few weeks back I posted a video from wired.com (via strobist) about Clay Enos working on the street with nothing but a D3 and a bit of white Seamless. It’s something I’d been planning anyway, so we hit the streets of Brighton, UK and grabbed as many locals as we could. Most were more than willing and some were really friendly. A few just weren’t interested, but that’s the way it goes…

Here are a few previews from the shoot. All were shot with the Nikon D3x and a 50mm f/1.8. Black and white conversions were done in aperture. To see the whole project go to http://www.taylorassignments.com and click on “projects”. Let me know what you think.

Cheers
