Weekly Photography Tip

Last week we talked about using natural light for your images. This week let’s look at backlighting.

Backlighting is when the light is coming from the back of the subject. In certain situations, this can create a beautifully lit scene. Often it can create a problem with the background being bright and the subject dark. Let me explain why.

Your camera’s lens cannot adjust to extreme lighting differences like your human eye can. The camera’s light meter struggles with the bright background and will make the subject very dark.

The easiest way to fix this problem is to move the subject or move the camera (you handholding the camera or the tripod holding the camera) so that the subject is not backlit.

Try this the next time the scene has backlighting: move yourself (or your tripod holding the camera) so that the lighting is coming from behind the camera. You can also move the subject so that it is not backlit.

Now, let the party begin!

  • This party is for home decor and home-related posts only (recipes, organizing, DIY, crafts, etc.). Link up to 3 related posts. Please do not link up informational posts that do not relate to the topic.
  • If you would please not link up shops, advertising, round-ups, other link parties, or any posts promoting sales, we would appreciate it.
  • DO NOT PIN FROM IMAGES ON THIS PAGE (it just won’t work right on Pinterest). However, please visit the original post/source and pin from there. That works perfectly!
