For today’s POTD I want to ask you what you think of flairs. Is is a good style? No I’m not talking about 1970’s trousers… but lens flair. I’ve read many times that lens flair is a bad thing… that’s why we fit lens hoods to our cameras. May be it is because I like to photograph Middle Eastern / Arabic locations – but often I think a well positioned bit of lens flair can actually add to an image. Take today’s POTD as an example – for me this wouldn’t tell the same story without the lens flair. The lens flair tells say hot, it says sun beating down in a way that the rest of the image doesn’t. Well that’s my opinion anyhow. Feel free to comment if you agree or disagree with me.
