Question, you talk about lens flair but you don’t use a hood why?
The photographer in the videos is not available…to your question, using a lens hood is a personal preference, it’s like having a UV filter on the front of the lens, there is no right or wrong here just personal preference. Relatively speaking, the use of a lens hood is positive both for some protection and help with flair reduction. Quick tip: make sure the hood is fastened securely, if not it may just fall off, not good of course due to the cost, but also if the hood is slightly off it might vignette your shot an in the heat of the moment you might not notice it.
