Photography Project 52 – Week 31 – Backlighting

What is Project 52? – Take one picture this week using the weekly theme of Backlighting to prompt your creativity.

  •  Why do it? – We hope to improve our picture taking skills, become more creative & make friends in the process! 

  •  Weekly themes will be posted each Thursday morning.  You are encouraged to share your images in the comments and on our Facebook page, or Facebook group.  All skill levels are welcome as this is an opportunity to share and learn together no matter when we start out.  We’ll do shout outs and favorite shares from the prior weeks assignments on Facebook and on our weekly theme articles.


Backlighting is beautiful.  It often has a dreamy quality that photographers and others love.  There are whole years of family photography trends devoted to backlighting looks alone!  For this weeks prompt we encourage you to explore the light around you.


Heidi’s picture is so sweet.  This boy is excited about his baptism and sharing his love for Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ.  I love his big grin and her use of backlighting seems to add to the bright excitement.



Uhmmm, what adult woman wouldn’t love to have a picture like this of her as a kid!?!!  It really captures the freedom and joy of being a little girl.   Go Kesti!



Richard’s image of this girl has all the light above the tree line reflected in her eyes.  Adorable



My image.  This one is to show how lovely backlighting can be when you use a dark background a ways back from your subject and a shallow depth of field.  It is a nice dark background canvas giving out of focus ‘grounding’ to the flower lit from mostly behind.  It was about 4pm in July so the sun was still pretty high in the sky.  The backlighting helps to define and bring the attention to the individual petals.



Good luck on your backlighting images this week!


Please feel free to jump on board with Everyday Creative’s Project 52 anytime!  We would love to see your images for this weeks prompt of  Backlighting!  Share in the comments, on our Facebook page or join our Facebook group.
