Burning sunset over the waters (Instax)

INST_013

I was really interested in how this one turned out.  As you can see, shooting into the sun can cause a new kind of image aberration when using the Instax.  It looks like it is just way too bright for the crystals in the film, leading to a burn-out dot.  I’ve reliably reproduced it in other photos since, so it’s not just a one off.

Monochrome lens flare skyline (Harinezumi 2++)

This was taken with the Harinezumi 2++, ISO100, set on black and white mode. I do enjoy taking photos with lens flare in it, but you should be careful when doing that. The manual says not to point the camera at the sun, as it causes burn-in, and I’ve heard reports of it happening. Despite that, I just can’t help myself! The way I deal with it is to keep it to a minimum.

I was at Surfers Paradise on the Gold Coast when I took this photo.
