Weekly Photography Challenge – Backlighting

This week’s challenge is to look for the light, particularly how it is hitting your subject. Backlight occurs when the light is coming from behind your subject, aimed back towards the camera. It works really on transparent objects like leaves and flowers.

Look for things that allow the light to come through them, show their color. Or look for light that outlines the subject as in a rim light.

Simply upload your shot into the comment field (look for the little camera icon in the Disqus comments section) and they’ll get embedded for us all to see or if you’d prefer upload them to your favourite photo sharing site and leave the link to them. Show me your best images in this week’s challenge. Sometimes it takes a while for an image to appear so be patient and try not to post the same image twice.
