Shaping your subject with light

Shaping your subject with light


When you shoot with a light source behind you, you may simply get flat and boring photos. To make the shot more interesting, change your position, so the source of light is beside or behind the subject.

Shooting in backlight, you can use your camera flash, even outdoors. It will help fill in harsh shadows.
