If you look in "Main Index" you'll see the "Post Production Forum", I THINK, that's the one you wanted. Anyway here is my feeble attempt.

To not have flare in the first place..

Remove the UV filter...use a lens hood that is dedicated/ made for that lens.. use flags, barn doors, grids, or non flush front soft boxes, and have them set up, in various postions, and check to see where your parameters are of where and where you can't shoot in your studio that will cause ill effect on a "test" subject.

Never learn this stuff on paying clients..

Good luck..

How does the UV filter affect lens flare? Just curious so I can apply the concept to other problems that might occur.

thanks

At best, it's just another surface for light to reflect off. However, most UV filters aren't coated as well as a good lens so they are more prone to reflection.

Pull that light on the right back at least twice the distance it's at now and flag the camera side of it. The falloff is pretty dramatic. Like John pointed out, that's a filter flare, lens flare would be a bunch of polygons.

Flare like that's fairly tough to remove in PS, lots of trial and error getting selections and opacities right, but it can be done.

A major rule in the studio and on location...use a tripod and a lens shade. But my suggestion is that this would have been even a nicer picture if you had all three of them wear white shirts.

Yep, that & they also extend outwards of the front element..and anything close to the path of direct light is more prone to flare, in addition to being a flat field element..

Well, I put about 20 minutes into it while the mother of the girls was here. I wasn't satisfied but she loved it. She got her xmas card pics and xmas was saved. Thanks for the advice. [image][/image]
