The current results from my ever continuing vox pop on lens flare suggests that it has a marimite relationship with the world. Some love how it looks, some think that it completely ruins a picture. Well, I want to make it clear that I'm in the love camp. I hear all sorts of explainations why people do not like lens flare but only one comment if they do like it.... wow. That's what it does to pictures, it adds a bit of wow, a bit of drama, a bit of mood. I scrolled through a few of my old images and came to the conclusion that lens flare makes up quite a big part of my style. So I thought I'd write a post on the importance of this phenomenon to my work. I try not to over use it but at Linda and Olivers wedding this weekend I decided to try a few different ways of using flare. Too add romance.... ...completely without artificial light.... ....and using artificial light as the flare without mainlighting any part of the image. Lens flare is a big part of my photography. It seems you either love it, or hate it. I love it. If you book me, you'll definitely be getting an image with some in, it's just what I do.
