One of the lessons in my class was on lighting. And there were these amazing examples of sun flare that I couldn't stop staring at. Evidently you can fake sun flare in ph*toshop....but it tends to look, well- fake. Therefore, it's nice to be able to actually make your own with some level of skill and the actual sun.
I'm a little short on the actual skill....but I'm great at trial and error!
And so, I give you my sun flare (which evidently is most easily achieved about 30-45 minutes before the sun sets).
Very exciting! (The flare, not the rest of the composition. I can only focus on one thing at a time.)
Oh, and speaking of our friend the sun.
This was the view as we left town early this morning to head back to reality.
Friday can't come soon enough!
