Week 31 : Sun Flare

I love a good sun flare. Here's a couple of sun flare tips because they are unpredictable (part of the reason I think they're so fun).

You can get a  diffused look by composing your photo so that the sun is not fully in your frame. Move your camera so that you're only getting the bottom part of the sun. You can also use your subject, or objects like trees to cover the sun so your flare doesn't haze too much of the picture.

Cover the sun with your hand while you're focusing on your subject - then move your hand to keep that focus and shoot.

Use different aperture settings to get the look you want. Softer flare is achieved with lower aperture. Sharp sun flare with rays -I like to go above an aperture of f13.

If you have any other tips let me know! I love hearing how others create beautiful sun flare!
