Amy hosts this week’s Len’s Artists Photo Challenge and she has selected the topic Under the Sun, meaning literally, “anything under the sun.” In her post, Amy points out the commonly held rule that shooting under a bright sun or towards the sun is often a photographic no-no that causes high contrast, blown out highlights, lens flare. To see Amy’s post on Everything Under the Sun click the link.
My take is that the sun often produces drama, spectacular lighting, and lens flare can often add some flare.
That special time of day when indirect sunlight reflected off of clouds after sunset or direct sunlight right near sunset or sunrise adds a rare red, pink or orange glow to the image.
Swiftly fly the years,
One season following another,
Laiden with happiness and tears. ~ Sunrise, Sunset. Composer Jerry Bock and lyricist Sheldon Harnick.
Flare adds some flare
