In this tipster, I want to give lomographers a tip for shooting beautiful and lovely backlight photos. Isn’t it great to have nice blue colour on the sky and those high contrasting colours of the subject you are shooting? I personally love it. There is a simple way to get these kinds of lovely shots which I found out around two years back.
The photo above is the kind of backlight photo that you can get when you shoot up at the sky. Grainy, underexposed and low contrast. But with the simple way which I am about to tell you, you can have lovely backlight photos.
You will need:
- A creative mind
Load the film and set the ISO. Yes, the trick is to set the right ISO. Set it to ISO 50 if you’re using ISO 100 film, ISO 100 for ISO 200 film, ISO 200 for ISO 400 film, and so on. Do this if you want to get a clear view of the subject you are shooting.
If you would like to have lovely black and white silhouette shots, it’s easy too! How easy can it be? All you have to do is change the ISO. Set it to ISO 200 if you are using ISO 100 film, ISO 100 for ISO 50 film and so on. You will surely get those lovely silhouette shots that you want.
Easy! So I hope with this easy and quick Tipster, all lomographers will get amazing backlight photos!
