Back Lighting

I'm taking a class on light and have been working on back lighting my photos. Here are some from yesterday that I found interesting. Would love your thoughts! I obviously have processed them in various different ways. As soon as my Valentine's Day gift arrives from B&H, I'll have my 365 photo up :)

  1. ooooh, these are beautiful. i've tried this before but can never get it quite right. either the background is way blown out or the the face is too dark. i love the last one -- did you do it post-processing or is it from the sun? and what are you getting for valentine's from b&h?? can't wait to hear :)

  3. Sure! I've only taken one so far... It was through Rawsii, and it was online.

  4. Do you have a post-processing trick for making the eyes pop? Yours always look amazing!
