25 Excellent Sun Flare Photography Examples

When you take a photograph and direct sunlight contacts the many pieces of glass in your lens, it usually creates reflections and flares in your photographs. This is called sun flare and using equipment like the lens hood can take care of this ‘problem’. Then again, sometimes that flare makes your picture look even better. Here are 25 great examples of photography using sun flare. Just don’t go around staring at the sun all day with your camera if this inspires you to do so.

Really awesome stuff. A lot of people go to great lengths to reduce or eliminate flare but in certain situations it can really look good.

It’s amazing the cool effects you can achieve if you get the right angle on the sun. You don’t need ps to achieve what some of these pictures show.

i would love this pictures much more if all of they would be up to 1024 resolution…
but really beautiful i’ll get ’em 😉

If you click on the link to each photo, some of the photographers do offer the 1024 size. If they do, you’ll see an ‘all sizes’ link above the photo.

do you need to use filter to achieve the starlight flare effect? my sun flare goes in all directions, it just doesnt look as nice.
