Flare

From Nikonians Wiki - FAQs, Photo Glossary, Good Photo Locations, Help

Jump to: navigation, search

Reflected light; from lens elements, sun, metal, etc. Appears as non-uniform haze or bright spots on the film or digital frame, often taking the shape of the aperture, generally caused from shooting towards the light source. The use of uncoated filters makes a lens more prone to flare; often results in an overall reduction of image contrast. The always-on use of a lens shade is also recommended.
