Back Lit Subjects

June 3, 2008

I love taking pictures of back lit subjects. It is easiest at sunset or sunrise when the run will be directly behind the subject creating a black silhouette. This was taken very early in the morning of my hot air balloon ride. The subjects are setting up the basket.

    Gorgeous photograph. The photograph tells a clear story, is well composed, and the light is wonderful.

    I’ve been loving backlit photos too but I screw them up a lot too.

    It took me a while to figure out how exactly to do them with out it being luck. Just make sure the light source is coming from ONLY behind the object. And make sure your flash does not go off when you take the picture.
