Part of my series called "Born of the Light" This shot is titled "Flare" in that series. The image was captured on a Canon 50D with a Canon 24-70mm 2.8f L lens. Shutter speed was 1/500 sec @ 7.1f, ISO 800, Hand Held, Manual Focus and Exposure Metering=Pattern. I used the cross beam of the window frame to partially obscure the sun. It took 10 shots to get the lens flare to land across her lower body in the proper spot. The flare was NOT added later in PS. The lens flare was intentional and was shot for it to be in this image, just as it is. So, the cross member became the filter combined with the gauze material to diffuse the light around her figure. The drape of cloth directly behind her was actually quite difficult to arrange to get the light to fall around her face evenly. Experimenting with camera angles and partially obscuring light sources has led to some interesting ways to shape lens flares for them to become a working part of my image compositions. Also, the "Cross Process" function on the "Curves" Panel in PS was used to skew the color palette and "pop" the contrast a just bit.
