I will start off by saying that I shoot in HDR (hoping to get into HDR/flash hybrid shooting eventually) the majority of the time. My question is, why do I still get glare from the windows around the edges? Even if its a cloudy day, I still get that kind of glowing blue-white around some or all of a window.
It doesn't happen all the time (about 50 percent of the time), but it is really frustrating when I have this happen. The picture posted kind of shows what I am talking about but I took a lot of the blue out of it. Sometimes it isn't as lens flarey as this and it's more of an outline around the window I'm not a huge fan of going into Photoshop to fix things (HDR workflow is already slow enough). Is this something I can fix this by the way I am shooting instead of in post?
This is a classic problem if you shoot interiors by bracketing only and don't use any flash. The artifacts around the windows will vary depending on the outside light. A quick and easy solution is to use a small manual flash. The process is explained in this post. This hybrid flash technique not only fixes the problem you are having around the windows but it gives you whiter whites and more accurate colors.
