Today I was lucky enough to get sun flare in the morning and haze in the evening. Fun!
I think technically I was supposed to choose one photo. What can I say? I'm a verbose speaker/writer, and it seems to translate to my photography as well.
Flare, of the sun variety:
|F/22, 1/1250, ISO 1600|
Minor processing (auto contrast, etc) and added a Lomo Camera Effect in PSE
|F/18, 1/800, ISO 1600|
|F/18, 1/250, ISO 1600|
Minor editing for contrast
For my photographer friends/guests out there: it seemed as though I had to have the sun near or directly in the center of the photo to get flare. If I tried to photograph with it at the edge of the frame the camera automatically removed any flare. Any ideas how to override this? I'd like to try adding some dreaminess to the photos rather than always capturing the stark sunburst. Suggestions?
And now for the purple haze all around:
|F/25, 1/80, ISO 1600|
Didn't totally care for this one either, but I guess it's because I wanted a more dreamy quality. First, that's really difficult in a stark city like Daegu. Second, there wasn't enough haze to make fantabulous photos.
Regardless of the outcomes, I had so much fun challenging myself to do this today! Make sure to head on over to Clan Donaldson to check out all the other link-ups. Add your own if you can!
