Hello, I'm new to photography. I got my girlfriend a t1i for christmas and never thought I would get so into it and have so much fun! My pictures are really bad, but it's still alot of fun to me! Most of my pictures have been of nature and on sunny days. I have ran into a problem with glare and have searched around for some help. The glare I'm getting is "in the lens" almost. Everywhere I look online describes glare from bodies of water, glare from reflective surfaces like glasses etc... I am getting hexagonal glare spots in the middle of some of my photos Here is a pic I took that shows what I mean(sorry for the size): Is there anything I can do to eliminate this? I usually shoot with a polarizer on if there is a lot of color (like this pic) but I get the glare with or without it on. Would one of those flower shaped hoods help? Or do I just need to start facing the other way when shooting Thanks!
