I took this photo:

As you can see there are round light specs on the photo. How would I reduce this happening when taking shots?

My question is, WHY? Would you reduce them, they make the image more special I think.

Using a lens hood should reduce the glare. And yes, it is usually undesirable, but can be used for artistic effect.

im not so sure a lens hood would work in this particular situation, due to ...him....looking at the sun, but maybe like a uv/polarizing filter?

i like the flare here though.

Indeed UV filter or any other will reduce it. AND by the way if you are looking to a magnifieng lens directly at the sun, you will be blind by the age of 40 you DUMBASS :)

Did i just see Ed using a smiley? Nice

There is nothing you can do to reduce that in that situation!

I noticed that flare tends to vary depending on what lens your using as well
