This is my submission for XDrive Photo Lesson 15 – Backlit Photography. All photos were taken with Nikon D750.
I noticed that I often had a good laugh when I worked on XDrive assignments. Laughing at myself, that is. We had many (too many) miserable gray days lately, so I thought maybe I should start looking for some back-lighted photos in my hard drive. Soon I heard myself keep asking: “is this backlit?” I finally showed my husband one photo and asked for his opinion (You know I usually don’t do that 😉 He said, “NO.”
“But, the sun was in front of me, not behind my back,” I said.
He went on explaining to me what backlit is. As we all know, learning from our own spouse is not easy.
So, do I get a backlit photo if I place my subject in front of 1-pm sun? Well, I know it is not a perfect backlit, but does it count?
Anyway, the light source for the first two photos was a flashlight behind and low to the subject.
The third photo was taken by the window (the sun came out! Yeah!)
The fourth photo was shot with flash on (fill light).
