Go wi th the glow

NPhoto - - Special Feature -

47 Many plants can look great pho­tographed with the light be­hind them as they are translu­cent. Shoot­ing to­wards the sun there­fore shows the colour of petals and leaves in a brighter way, while re­veal­ing some of the in­ter­nal struc­ture. Plants with hairs and an­i­mals with fur also ben­e­fit from slight back­light­ing, as the spines glow, cre­at­ing a halo-like ap­pear­ance. Try to frame the sub­ject against a darker back­ground, so that the hairs stand out more ob­vi­ously.
