Out in the field, you’ll often find yourself in a situation where the nicest-looking shot is extremely backlit. For example, an office interview scene with bright windows behind the subject can create a challenging shooting situation. The problem with strongly backlit shots is that they make it difficult for your audience to focus on what you want them to: your subject! Worse yet, you might not even realize how backlit your shot is until you begin the postproduction process.

Derrick Story and his model, Denise Crosby, show us how to best use backlight, reflection, spot metering, and fill flash for stunning professional-quality photographs.
Derrick Story is at it again! He is bound and determined to make us better photographers, and his new series of Photo Assignment courses really do give us all an opportunity to strut our stuff.
The latest in his series is the new course, Photo Assignment: Backlit Portraits, Derrick show us how to achieve really interesting effects in a typically unintuitive shooting style—backlit. Check out his new courses, and then join me in posting pictures to his latest Flickr group, where we can all learn from each other.
Have fun shooting and see you all on Flickr.
