Photo Tips from Spain #7 – Adding flare

Lens flare has always been seen as a bad thing in photography, but used in the right context it definitely adds to the shot.  I this shot I was trying to capture the empty red seats and tables, but no matter what I tried, I couldn’t prevent flare.  With a wide angle lens, as used here, it is even more difficult to prevent than when using a standard or telephoto lens.  As it turned out, the flare adds a unique element that  otherwise would have made the shot blander.
