Be Still_52 #8 - Backlighting

Backlighting--photographing a subject with the light behind it.  I actually find myself doing this frequently, for  a variety of reasons: capturing my great-niece's curly hair in a sun "halo," capturing some flowers in the narrow bedroom window "studio" that has limited time for good light, capturing an interesting shape of almost anything that shows up best with light behind it.   This 8th week of Be Still_52 involves working with back light.  (I am going to use ranunculus until they are beyond help...$40 a bunch, after all!   The white mums were $5.)

You've really mastered backlighting.

Love those ranunculus, so pretty. Great idea to use paper too, must try it!

These are lovely. I think I'm drawn more to the pink flowers though.
