Avoiding Flares

Flares occur when light enters the lenses from unwanted angles. To avoid this effect it is important to use some kind of light protection on the lenses when shooting in daylight or near artificial lights.

You can use purposely built mate boxes, improvise a cover or simply use your hands. The protection should ideally be a black surface to minimize reflections and tinting the footage with unwanted colors.
