For this week’s iheartfaces photo challenge, I choose cutie pie S! She’s rocking her “diva sunglasses” and has her dad’s turnout gear from the firehouse in the background. I love the pigtails and the warm sun flare streaking across the image to give it that summery feel.
I taught a Boy Scouts Merit Badge Photography class this weekend, and there one thing I reminded them in modern photography: rules are made to be broken. Many professional photographers say that there is no place for sun flare…but I completely disagree! There is absolutely a place for sun flare…in this image to give it the feeling and effect that tells the story of the image – and highlights S’ personality!
