Tip of the Week: Flair for Flare

 

Wide angle lenses are more susceptible to flaring, especially when shooting against the light. When creatively using flare as a compositional element, you need to take care of one thing—the camera’s position to the sun. This will largely depend on the time of the day. In the mornings or evenings, you can shoot directly into the sun, but at midday, you will need to position yourself fairly low to the ground.
