Challenge: Backlighting II (Basic Editing III)
Camera: Canon EOS-350D Rebel XT
Lens: Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II
Location: Boston, Ma
Date: Jan 6, 2006
Galleries: Emotive, Studio
Date Uploaded: Jan 9, 2006

Background is a sheet backlit with a tungsten lamp. Used an off camaera flash at an angle, and ambient room lighting to add light to front of faces. Hopefully on other monitor calibrations the faces aren't dark enough to be considered "silhouettes".

Quite appealing. There's a certain sense of asymmetry that makes it even better. Nice job. [9].

A nice shot, love the composition. One small critique, and I honestly don't know if it could have been avoided, is the shadow on her nose/eye/forehead. Good luck!

I admit I've seen this before... but never mind. This is still my favorite picture in this challenge. The lighting is exquisite and the picture is emotionally evocative. Beautiful!

Exquisite shot! 10
01/11/2006 02:44:49 AM
really nice picture, I'd prefer to see lips lined up with lips, not lips to hairy chin :) great photo. Also the white in the top left is a little distracting
01/11/2006 02:37:32 AM
Lose the stroke.
01/11/2006 01:43:32 AM
it'll be more dramatic if it's a silhouette
01/11/2006 01:40:42 AM
Wonderful capture. I love the symetry and use of negative space to really create and impact... One of my favs in this challenge
01/11/2006 01:10:43 AM
This will do well...I like that they are in opposite directions, and also that you didn't go too graphic to get the point across.
