Flare photography with Kristin Zecchinelli...




Last year, during Scott Kelby's world wide photo walk I had the pleasure of meeting Kristin Zecchinelli (aka "Maine Momma").

Kristin ended up as the winning photographer of the walk, not only was her winning shot great, she had a great collection of images from that day and you can view some of those images here.

Though I enjoy looking at her images, it was when I started following her blog that it became obvious that she truly loves photography and is a genuinely good and caring person, which kept me coming back for more.

One of the things Kristin does well (and loves doing) is flare photography, so much so that she now has a "Flare Fridays" Flickr group (with over 600 members and almost 3,000 images).

You can also see Kristin's personal Flickr pool of flare images here.

If you are interested in trying some flare photography she put together an easy to follow tutorial.

So, I wanted to share some of her images and her blog with you because she is a photographer worth following.

Enjoy.
