Backlighting vs Rim Lighting – Do you know what the difference is between the two ? Have you tried it or wanted to try it ?

I am going to do a brief discussion on on the above as mentioned.

Let’s break it down – Back Lighting and Rim Lighting are the same thing but here are some facts and pointers:

  • Both require the sun to be from in front of your lens
  • The angle the sun is from the horizon and your location play a part
  • Is the horizon clear or is there low foliage
  • Is there dust or complimentary atmospheric conditions
  • Exposure plays a big part of the end result.
  • Achieving focus is not easy
  • Focus point selection and aperture are important
