14 Interesting Analogue Photos of Flare Shot by Toy Cameras

Flare in photography, also called lens flare, is the light scattered in lens systems through generally unwanted image formation mechanisms, such as internal reflection and scattering from material inhomogeneities in the lens.

Flare is particularly caused by a very bright light sources either in the image or shining into the lens but not in the image. Most commonly, this occurs when shooting into the sun (when the sun is in frame or the lens is pointed in the direction of the sun).

Here are some interesting analogue photographs of flare that were shot by toy cameras.
