Have you ever wondered how to create those fantastic starbursts? They add sparkle to a photo and can become a centre point of your composition. You can create a starburst effect whenever you’re including a strong light source, and you don’t need an expensive lens… you can do this with your kit lens on a DSLR. You can’t achieve a starburst purposefully in auto mode, so I’ll guide you through with the exact recipe in manual mode on your DSLR! There are a few ways to create a starburst, but in the spirit of keeping this short and sweet we’ll show you one way, using the sun. Choose a time early or late in the day when the sun is naturally diffused by the horizon. Start with these settings on your camera: Aperture f/18, Shutter speed 1/100 and ISO400 and take the shot. If your image is too dark, start increasing your ISO in increments until you have a good exposure. If it’s too light, increase your shutter speed.
If your image is too dark even after boosting your ISO quite high, and you don’t have enough ambient light to shoot handhled. So use a tripod or other surface to rest your camera on, and keep decreasing your shutter speed until you get the exposure you desire. Then come back and tag #clicklovegrow so we can see your work! #photographytips #photography101 #learnphotography #starbursts #beginnersphotography
