What is a hot spot?
A hot spot is a spot on a photo/picture that is blown out or overexposed to the point that all detail is lost and/or the spot is distracting to the overall image.
Pictures taken in direct sunlight will sometimes get hot spots because the light reflecting off certain areas will be very bright compared to other areas in the image.
Thank you sire!
Hot spots are also common when using on camera flash from too close. Have you ever seen snapshots of people at night? Parts of the nose and cheek are often bright white.
Yep, I exactly know what you mean!
Separate names with a comma.
