Photography Tip: If you are going to shoot directly into the sun then try closing your lens down to its smallest aperture. Shooting directly into the rising or setting sun with your smallest aperture will create a starburst flare pattern. To make this effect more noticeable try to hide the majority of the sun behind a solid object. Hiding part of the sun minimizes the pure white hole that it creates in your photo and it makes the starburst pattern more pronounced.
This is one of the locations that we will visit this October during my *Coastal Maine Photography Workshop* at the Spruce Point Inn Resort & Spa. This photography workshop is centered on the sea and its endless photographic possibilities!
We will float from island to island in our own private motorboat each day while out photographing beautiful harbors, remote lighthouses, and working lobster boats. This is a terrific opportunity to improve your photography while enjoying the cuisine and hospitality of Maine’s finest resort.
