I read that the Canon 7Dmk2 has a killer feature for sports lighting which times the exposure to synchronize with the lights. To fix in post, try shooting a burst which will get the stipes in different positions on each frame. Stack them (auto-align) in Photoshop and use brightest choice for each pixel via blending mode and parameters.


If the whole scene is illuminated by a single light source, it might be possible to create a "flat frame" by taking a picture of the uniform white background illuminated by that light source, and then using the flat frame to compensate your photo for uneven illumination (divide the photo by the flat frame in photoshop/gimp/other). Preparing a good quality ...


It's almost impossible to remove them in post. You'd basically have to repaint the image digitally. Choose a shutter speed that is slow enough to solve the problem in advance and in camera - it's always a better idea to solve problems as soon as practical. Sadly, I don't know a good formula to determine the best speed, but you could just take a few test ...


If they are showing up at the same place on every image, then this is most likely a failure of either the sensor or the electronics that pull the data off of the sensor. Either way, that's something that needs to be evaluated and repaired by Nikon.


A NEF file would be good to see before anything, but most probably you need to send the camera for servicing. If in USA, you can try


Lens flare is always somewhere between a possibility and a likelihood when the sun or some other bright light is included in the frame. It can be reduced by avoiding filters, keeping everything clean and using a lens that flares less but the only way to avoid it is to keep the bright light source out of the frame. The best sunrise and sunset pictures are ...


Some lenses are more prone to this, those with a bulbous front element will flare easier and are more difficult to control. Some photographers that shoot a lot of sun/sunbursts buy lenses specifically for this purpose. The Canon 16-35mm f2.8 L II for example is known for well controlled flare and a beautiful sun star shape due to coating and the shape/number ...


tl; dr. Blend a "panorama" from only slightly rotated exposures and make sure no flare is included in the final result. It's not possible to optically remove this type of flare when shooting into the sun (though different lenses have different levels of flare resistance). However, there are other effective ways to get rid of it. What you can do is take ...


I have done three things in the past to deal with this. Compose the photo in such a way that the lense flare is attractive... that's a great choice for your example above because the sun is IN the photo. Some lenses have an attractive flare (many don't) Use lens hoods, paper, or your hand to block the light that is causing the flare. This works when ...


Lens flare happens when light internally reflects within the lens itself. There are a few possible sources of internal reflection. You could get it from using a non-digital lens on a digital camera and getting reflection off the sensor (doesn't seem like the case here), you could get it off a filter placed on the front of the lens (light tends to bounce ...
