    Worked all my life on how to photograph without flair showing. Now its what people want. Go figure.

    didnt read all the replies, so sorry if this has been mentioned....

    experiment with:

    lighten the shadows
    cross process
    light leaks, or color overlays/gradients at super low opacity

    hope this helps

    If I wanted that look, I would use a Harrison and Harrison double fog 1 or 2 filter on my camera lens and overexpose at least one stop as I was shooting. Then, you could play in Photoshop.

    People do want this look, but I don't really get it. I think its a fad. But, in Photoshop you can use the lens flair - it works great.
