I noticed that creating a glare has been a popular PP technique these days. How do i achieve the glare or the spill light from a corner? Is it done by post processing? I tried to actually angle my camera to get the glare from the sun but just ends up washing out the pictures.

Any tips would be appreciated. Thanks

Do you have an example?
I dont understand what you mean.
Are you talking about lens flare, sunbeam, washed out light look or "search/floodlight"-kind of light?

i think that both of those are done in pp you can usually tell from the shadows of everything.
It is possible to do for real though, just compose your shot and focus then move your camera to get the sun in the shot a bit.

Getting washed out pictures using this method is just part & parcel of that effect. You just pump blacks back into everything & it will regain its contast, but still have that great 'feel' to it.

As for my Porsche photo you used as an example i only used the Lensflare effect in PS. Might be a bit noobish but then again I'm quite a rookie and I think it worked ok in this photo so I went for it smile.gif

haha, never thought it was just a lens flare. Will try that one as well as soft light overlay.

Thanks for the input

I wouldn't recommend anyone using it frequently. It just looks fake and messes up contrast.
Do a couple of overexposed shots instead and make a comp.
