Photographing with Backlight

Photographing with Backlight



Essentially, the main idea of photography is playing with light. If we are able play with light and control how it bounces off the subject, it will of course make for a great photograph. If we made mistakes in lighting, it will surely hurt the result.
The direction of light against the subject of the photo can be directed from several possibilities: front light, backlight, sidelight, top light, and bottom light. Each lighting direction has their own advantages, disadvantages, and level of difficulties while shooting.

This post will concentrate on discussing backlighting, where the source of light is from behind the object of the photograph. Backlight can become a challenge because of the level of difficulty associated with the direction of the light source. The resulting photograph of backlight can be diverse and extraordinary if done well.

Photographing with the backlight technique will prominently separate the object from its background, making the photograph highly dimensional. In addition, other varieties of this technique will result in photographs such as: silhouettes, translucent photos, and rim light (including flares). The results of course will depend on the techniques used by the photographer.

Tips and Tricks to Optimizing Kit Lens On the DSLR



First, I would like to explain what a “kit” lens actually is. A kit lens is a lens that is usually bundled in the package when buying a new DSLR camera. For beginner DSLR kits, the kit lenses bundled in are also beginner lenses and cheap in price. But if you have the opportunity to buy an advanced camera such as the Canon 5D mark II, the lens bundled is also advanced. For example, 5D mark II is bundled with the Canon 24-105mm f/4 L USM that’ll cost over $1000 separately.

So if the assumption was that the kit lens is always a cheap and low quality lens, this isn’t necessarily true. But it is undeniable that most kit lenses are low quality and cheap.

Currently, camera and lens manufacturers have upgraded the quality of the kit lens. And if compared with the quality set 3 to 5 years ago, the photographs produced by kit lenses are getting better with a more flexible zoom range.
