Backlighting

I love this picture. Lord knows I struggle with backlighting - partially because it's tough to meter properly, partially because I'm stubborn & hate reflectors almost as bad as gray cards & tripods! But I feel like I pulled this off. Maybe it's my mommy goggles. I thought the tilt was too much at first, but now I'm really, really liking it.



Confession - I have NO pictures that I have taken hanging in my home. I'm thinking I might actually print a few. This one tops the list for me.

AND YES, I'm going to print the blue one :) Thanks for all the comments & emails on that, you guys are so funny! Definitely real life! (around here anyway!)

Ya know.... not only do I not have any pictures hung in my house (ok, so I just hung up the very first one the other day!) I never meter or have a gray card or anything like that. That's MY confession!! :)

Stephanie,
I clicked on your link from 2peas and I wanted to comment on your beautiful children and photography. I love that blue on it is to die for.
