Well, here we are in a beautiful park today.…It's a little breezy.…The sun is very bright.…But that's okay, because what we're doing is backlit portraits.…What does that mean?…That means we are actually going to have the sun behind the model and by the way…we have a lovely model today. Denise is with us.…What we are going to do is have the sun back here, illuminate the hair from behind.…So, you get a nice rim, a little bit on the shoulders and then all we have to…figure out is how to expose the face properly.…So that's the gist of what we are going to be doing.…Now, I am going to be using a Canon 5D Mark II, which is a very good camera,…with the 7200 mm lens, but to start out let's just shoot regular program mode,…regular Evaluative-Metering.…
Let's see what we get and then we will adjust from there. Okay, here we go.…You are ready, Denise?…All right, I am going to just line you up right here and we're going to take a few shots.…Okay, so I am taking a look at her shots now.…I am going to go ahead and go to Playback mode.…
