Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #247: Backlit

Happy Sunday! This week, Ann-Christine is the lovely hostess for Lens-Artist Photo Challenge and the topic is one of my favorites – Backlit.

This is one of my new favorites, made a few nights ago when I was taking the garbage out and saw all the daffodils blooming in my front yard. The sun was behind me and I love how it’s illuminating the center of the flower.

It was not my intention to make the picture like it is but when I began editing the picture in Lightroom, playing with the blacks, whites, and shadows sliders, and suddenly, this picture began to take shape.

I think backlit landscapes sometimes make the best photos. Like this one. I took this photo on the same day as I took the photo of the daffodil. This mountain view is such an ephemeral thing in spring because of the melting snow. It can look like this today but it doesn’t mean it’ll look the same in a few days.

Finally, here are some of my favorite backlit photos.

  1. The pictures are fine, but backlit means the light comes from behind subject so the light is facing you, not from behind you. Usually a backlighted photograph has a ring of light around while it remains a little darker.
