I have been shooting quite a bit at night, most all the shots are in lighting conditions that have at least one streetlight, either slightly outside the frame, in one of the corners of the frame, or even in the center.
The exposures are mostly 5.6 - 8 and range from 1 second to 5 minutes.
I am using a hasselblad lens hood on an older 80mm chrome hasselblad lens.
What Im finding is quite a bit of lens flare in the shape of a triangle with a oval on top (hope that description makes sense, I will try to post a picture of the flare later)Im also getting the typical polygonal shapes as well.
Is there much I can do to control this? Different type lens hood maybe?
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated,
