    Different people call it differently, some call it backlit shot, some care it flare shot, some call it into-the-sun shot.

    How to do it? simple, include the sun in your frame.

    photoshop? I think you can artificially create lens flare while post processing... and apply some sort of warming filter as well...

    and it's probably shot manual, with the sun included in the frame...

    its better/easier to artificially create flare than to remove unwanted flare... Thats why most lenses/glass have all sorts of coatings to reduce flares...

    then following that, the photographer has to PP the flare in properly, so that it doesn't look out of place e.g. coming from the person's eyes, coffe mug etc
