I didn't see the flare until after taking a few shoots. I moved the scene to remove the flare but I don't like those pix as much. Therefore, before I spend a lot of time fixing this in PS I needs some feedback on is it worth it. It seems a little distracting to me. Hmm, perhaps I just answered my own question.

(And there are times when it might be artisitically appropriate). When you don't want it, flag it. That means, carry something to block the sun from hitting your lens. It can be anything from a large 30x40" professional photoflag, to a baseball cap. Sometimes I have my assistant stand between me and the sun while he's holding a reflector on the model (now that's making the most of your assets). We usually carry a piece of foamcore for this purpose, and maybe have the makeup artist hold it. Sometimes the sun is shining in your face when you're trying to shoot and makes it hard to see through the viewfinder, and this flag can help with that too, just make sure the flag blocks the sun from the lens. I always have a lens shade on the camera, but that doesn't always cut it when you're using extreme angles.

Another thing is to make sure your lenses, filters, and sensor are clean as well. Think of all the things you'd do to make the glare on a car windshield go away, and apply that to your camera.
