Artificial Sun Flare Effect – Image of the Month – August 2013

These images are just being published by my client and I’m really proud of the flash light we used to create sun flare in this image. In the dead of winter back in January, sunlight was scarce and snow wasn’t. So my assistant used a boom arm to hold into shot a small flash head pointing directly into the lens. The effect was great and was had a lot of fun working out the best amount of power and position of the light to gain the best results. People often use software to create this effect but It’s so much nicer getting it in the camera and the clients gets excited just looking at the back of the camera. Enjoy, H.
