Sun Burst

Maybe you knew this… but I recently learned it, so I thought I’d share.

Somehow, I assumed those sunburst photos I saw in magazines were Photoshop’d.  I thought they had some filter or plug-in that they applied to a sun to give it that starburst effect.

Not so!  Set your aperture on f/11 or f/16 and point at the sun.  (I know, we were all taught not to point at the sun… someone’s been keeping this cool trick from us!).  Hide the sun behind a piece of tree to obstruct the full blast of the sun, and move around until you see the starburst.  Click!
