The sunflare + bokeh combination on some of these photos are just amazing.

Ooooh. I've been wanting to see some longer glass flare. Hoping to get out with my 70-200 2.8 and test along with my 85 1.8.

I don't know if there is a specific "technique" to creating these shots other than shooting into the sun and using another light source or reflector for fill. I'm not a huge fan of flares and the washed-out look, but I think it does have a place if not overused. I will say that clients do seem to like these types of shots.

I haven't been on here in quite a while.
This is my humble try.

I'm hardly one to be giving advice, but I thought I might offer a little something in case you cropped this image...

Part of her right hand is cut off which makes the scene feel incomplete. Also, it's obvious she's playing with her hair but we can't see what she's doing with it. If you happened to crop from the left side, try adding it back to show the hand, hair, and interaction of the two. This would also move the beautiful young lady to the right of the frame which would alter the shot possibly in a good way if she's far enough to the right (there's a little on the right that could be cropped to assist in this) and not centered.

That said, I really like a lot about the shot!

Thank you for the advice. Unfortunately this is how I shot the image so I can't alter the framing :(.
Once of the areas I am working on is framing and will definitely keep your advice in mind on my next photoshoot!

I dug up all my old backups and found my very first sun flair

Very early family session for me

At least I knew to use fill flash... not using it well but ya'know whatever
