About This Class

In this class we'll be chasing the sun to create dramatic, beautiful lens flares totally in-camera (no photoshop necessary!!)

I'll show you each of the tools I use to add a little (or a lot!) of lens flare and haze in my images.
I'll show you how to utilize everyday objects like a CD, plastic bags, or the screen of your phone and I'll also tell you where you can get a great prism and a set of copper pipes for even more experimenting.

Please exercise caution when shooting into the sun! Eye damage is real, so don't stare at the sun for extended periods of time and give your eyes plenty of breaks during your photoshoot. :)
