Today is Tuesday, November 10th, 2009. Today’s theme for the 2009 Challenge is BACKLIT.
Having the primary light source coming from behind the subject can be a massively difficult task to properly expose. However, when you get it right, it can produce some gorgeous results.
Consider using the sun, or an existing light, and then adding your own off camera light to the front of your subject. Or, you can simply expose the subject correctly, knowing that the edges will be blown out. Whatever balance you achieve, this theme can really open your creativity!
Once you’re ready to submit your work to Flickr, you’ve got to do two important things. First, make sure you tag your photos correctly; “2009challenge″ and “2009challenge314“. Also, if you haven’t already, join the PhotoChallenge group on Flickr. Then, submit each day’s photo to the group’s pool.
