One of the most important aspects of photography is knowing how to use your light source. Most often it is thought that having the sun over your shoulder to light a subject is the most appealing lighting option. This is not the case. Photographing into the light works well too. In fact, backlighting a subject – having the light source behind the subject instead of in front of it – can often produce a more dramatic photograph.
In an article for Apogee Photo Magazine I discuss a variety of ways in which photographing into the light can be beneficial and give a brief run-down on how to achieve them in your own photography.
