I shot a few moments during a sunset the other day. I have always been careful about shooting directly into the sun because it would flare out and is difficult to balance the light in the shot. However, it seemed fitting to have a couple shots of the actual sunset. When looking at the footage, the sun seems to flare out in a non-circular shape, which is inconsistent from shot to shot.
Has anyone else had this issue? and is there a certain way you go about filming around the sun to avoid it, or do you just have to deal with stopping up and darkening the entire image?
