    I am using a Nikon 5700 CoolPix wiht a Nikon FC-E9 fisheye lens adapter. I am having very difficult time in bright sunlight outside and through large windows with flares and glare in my pictures.

    What can I do to control the light?

    This may sound simplstic, but just avoid shooting scenes which you now know will produce problems. In other words, wait for overcast days, etc.

    Alternately, accept the problem and make it part of the composition.

    You will always have this problem with a fisheye lens, because the field of view is so wide, and there is no way to use a lenshood. As suggested, don't shoot into the sunlight, rather put it behind you.
