Creating Sunstars May-Issue No.148 UK Digital Photographer Magazine

I was asked to provide a small insert to go into the UK Digital Photographer Magazine May 2014. I am often asked to supply Images for the magazine and look our for Issue 150. It will be an extra special Magazine because of the number, and I have been interviewed for an article for this particular issue!

    Hello Ian

    I have a sunstar filter which I used many years ago with my Nikon F2 when film was in vogue. Are you using this filter or similar when shooting into the sun? I would like to know so I can bring it with me on our trip to US later this year!

    By the way, will you supply a list of what to take with us soon so I can start planning as it is only four months away?

    I can see why you shoot into the sun with your wide angle lens, otherwise my shadow gets into every image. Sometimes I have to twist my body to avoid my shadow and othertimes have to crop myself out of the image. Do you have this problem?

    Cheers for now

    Hi Elizabeth, I don’t use any filters to create sunstars, just F22 and partial obscurity of the sun.
    I will teach this to any interested on the USA tour. Keeping your shadow out of the frame can be tricky, but there are ways to do this. I will be sending out a full list of recommended gear soon.
    kind regards Ian
