i ♥ faces - Sun Flare

One reason I really love i ♥ faces is because they challenge you to shoot something differently. They are also great about teaching new techniques.

This week's challenge is sun flare. Now, I've seen sun flare used many times but it's mostly with structures... not faces. I enjoyed experimenting with it but I had a hard time trying to get a sun flare and a face in the same photo without the flare running across the face in weird places.

My most successful shot. Sydney. My almost-cooperative model.
Sydney Sun Flare


I can't wait to see all the entries at i ♥ faces this week. They are sure to be very inspirational. I may have to do another photo shoot to practice some more!

Look at you go! That's an incredible capture of sun flare. I have a difficult time with capturing sun flare so I'm even more impressed. :)

That is wonderful! When I got the big flare like that, the face was so washed out that it was more of a silhouette. Great job!
