We believe the difference is in the details and we’ve crafted these effects for those who share that fundamental idea. Principle Light Hits features some of the most bold and beautiful lens flares available to photographers.

Made from actual sunlight

Each effect has vibrant color and rich detail, offering legitimacy that can only be achieved by capturing actual sunlight in-camera.

CGI lens flares are often artificially crisp or devoid of substance. Principle Light Hits have a ton of character. If you look closely, you’ll see smooth rays of light accented by intricate, stunning chromatic detail.
