Explained: How I Processed this Portrait Photograph to Make it Sunny

I always try to plan ahead and work out when the sun is going to be out so I can capture really beautiful light that gives my photographs that special feeling.

But the sun isn’t out everyday and it’s often not even in the right place or at the right time.

So, the question is: How do I add sun to my portraits/photographs?

The anwser is, I use The Sunflares Pack

Our treasured “Sunflares Pack” has saved us time and time again on those dull, dreary days, or when we just want to make our portraits look more sunny and exciting!

The great thing about these sunflares is when you apply them correctly they look exactly like the sun – to the point that nobody would know it’s real or not!

For example here is a recent self-portrait I took processed with The Sunflares Pack

BEFORE adding “The Sunflares Pack”


In the portrait above you can see there is light behind me but on the left it’s dark and dull,  the trees behind me were blocking the sunlight.

Now take a look at the portrait AFTER once I added The Sunflare Pack…
