Experimenting with backlit photography
I live and work in places with window walls, so it came naturally to me to try different angles next to big windows. I remember we have been taught as kids not to take pictures when the light is coming from the front of the camera, something the adults were calling ‘contre-jour’. Ever since I got my professional camera I like to experiment with light, and I discovered I have a soft spot for backlit photography. I like the dreamy atmosphere they have, the softness of the objects, the silhouettes, the effects I can create by adding a colourful object nearby. Sometimes I play even more in Lightroom and I overexpose them (like the last image) for a painting-like look. Next step will be trying backlit portraits.
