hey everybody,

i just stumbled upon an image showing a very interesting, very natural 70s kind of lens flare and i can't tell you why, but i doubt that this came directly straight outta cam...

does anyone know, where to get some really high class flares like this one for still frame post production? i even noticed that there is a trend in using reflexes that look like were kind of putting some sort of diamond or crystal in front of a camera - maybe you know what i mean.

any tips would be helpful!

i wish i would be able to recall in which ad campaign i saw these kind of flares. beauty or fashion spot, of course, probably some H&M or hair product campaign.
