Many people think that if you take a photo and it ends up with a sun-flare in it you have a poor quality picture.
Did you know that sun-flares are the latest in photography? And if you happen to get a beautiful sun-flare in a photo it is viewed by other photographers as a true gem?
In fact this week at I Heart Faces the theme was sun-flares! I didn’t enter the contest, because I didn’t think I had anything to offer. I’ve been working on some photos and actually trying to add sun-flare to them!
Today on I Heart Faces they are actually hosting a contest for some really great edits (for Photo-shop) that ADD SUNFLARE to your photos!! OOOOOOHHHHHH…. so it’s okay to fabricate the sun-flare???? Emphasize the small sun-flares? I guess so!!
I took this picture last Sunday. This is Cary and Amy. (the rest of their family pictures will come soon) They have been in my life in a multitude of ways over the years.
Nice picture. Not wild about the color. Indiana is not real colorful this time of year. And every picture I took that day just seemed so washed out. See that tiny spot on Cary’s arm? A sun-flare! It was sunny on this day & that gave me an idea! I used some of the edits I got at Kaleidoscope (and I REALLY HOPE I WIN MORE!!!)
What do you think of that?
It’s something to keep working on & but I think it is kinda cool!!
