Quickie Tipster: Hunting the Flares

2011-06-25 14

Transform a normal shot into a creative shot. Lets hunt for the flares. Have fun my analogue friends :) Go out and face the sun!

Load your films(slide or negatives) and go out on hot sunny day..shoot faces the sun and seek for the magical lens flares! As we all know lens flare will create a great happy mood, and sometime give an extraordinary look to our photos! I had use various cameras to hunt the flares, even with my home made pinhole camera. Vivitar UWS is best choice! Fisheye camera and Diana mini are cool too :)
