Lense flare?

I am wondering if Nd filters would prevent lense flare as seen in a couple photos I have taken. I understand I am shooting directly facing the light source.

Try a higher shutter speed/ISO

Unfortunately lens flare is a fact of life when shooting into the sun.

The only way to minimise it is either to get a lens hood or point the camera down so then sun isn't hitting the lens directly. No amount of fiddling with ISO/shutter settings is going to change that.

Adding extra filters *could* also increase the likelihood of flare.

For me depending on the angle facing the sun my ND filters actually add a flare.

When ever you are shooting videos or stills for best results the sun should be behind you or to either side, never in front of you.
