I’ve been obsessed with creating shots with the sun starburst effect lately.
Everywhere I’ve been, I’ve been tilting my head up with my camera. It’s funny since people don’t see what I am creating until I show them my LCD screen.
A starburst makes a shot look almost magical. Like it’s been blessed with good things.
Except that it’s also killing my eyes with so much staring into the sun. Haha..
So, here’s the trick to get the starburst effect. Shoot at AV mode, set aperture to f/22. Aim at the sun and try to block it slightly with a subject, like a tree or building.
