Boys in tree backlit
Description: Ok, so I know we're only supposed to upload 3-5 pics but I finally think I "got it" with the portrait backlighting... I took this today of my son and his friend in a tree. The sun was right behind them (very bright). I exposed for a brown tree trunk to the right and out of the frame (much darker bark than the seagrape tree that they are in) and then took this shot. The sky behind them is blown out but they are exposed correctly, I think! I just had to share a portrait example.
