Superb Sun-Burst Photography

Sun-Bursts are a great way to present the sunlight as a feature part of the photograph, without severely harming your sensor or over exposing your film and causing light leaks! In simple terms this sunburst effect can be achieved by reducing the size of your lens diaphragm or setting your aperture to f22 or around that, and this will effect the light source entering your camera producing bursting rays of light.

As always I encourage you to visit the photographer’s Flickr PhotoStream for more inspiration – by simply clicking their photographs!
