SCRIPT This shot is in the sun backlit. Extreme contrast. But we got beautiful light coming through the fig tree and that’s the priority. So it’s OK if details are underexposed. The important thing is we get the right exposure for the key part of the image. (camera shutter) Note the rich color saturation and the strong backlit outline.
PRACTICE Working with a person or an object, take a picture of the subject using one main light on the back of your head or the subject.
If you don't have bright sun, you can use a street light in the evening or if indoors, use a harsh reading light. Make sure the light is very strong so the shadows are dark.
Take a picture with the camera facing the light. The subject should be in shadow but there should be a bright halo around the subject.
Study your results. Write in 25-75 words your observations in your Progress Report.
