The lens flares in these pictures make me so happy. It was a little experiment the husband and I tried the other night and it actually worked! If anyone else wants to give it a go, we shot in the early evening while the sun was on a good angle, I stood in the shade with the sun behind me and Jeremy stood where the sun shone straight onto the camera lens. I love the effect, now I want to try this with one of my film cameras!
If you're looking to experiment with backlighting and sun flares I definitely recommend checking out this post on A Beautiful Mess for more indepth info on how to do it and some handy hints and tricks. Next time we give this a go I think we'll try do it without any use of shade and just the sun behind me. Can't wait!
