Seeing lots of sunflare/glare in ads and model portfolios this year--seems very 70s.  Shooting into the sun (with your subject partially or fully blocking the direct sun) can capture some fantastic and beautiful images, but why?  Is it some natural instinct reminiscent of warmth, nature, happy times?  Is it the contrast, the drama that it can provide?  Is it the haziness that washes out detail and leaves more to the imagination, making it more romantic or sensuous?  Or is it just an easy natural light grab?
