What do you do when you’re forced to shoot your subject with a powerful source of light behind it?
That’s the question Jared Polin – “the fro that knows photo” – answers in this video photography tutorial.
What you’ll notice right away is how Jared talks about using your camera’s manual settings instead of it’s Aperture or automatic modes.
Now there’s nothing wrong with using camera’s automatic settings and Jared shows you some examples of what you can expect your pictures to turn out like.
But if you want to make your images turn out great, Jared also shows you why putting your camera in manual mode is the better way to go.
If you’ve never shot in manual before, it’s really not a big deal. Jared goes through all the steps you need to do to get positive results and even has an assignment you can do to make it all crystal clear.
So watch this entire video and see if Jared, Kermit the Frog and their photography lesson can’t get you to shoot better pictures in an awkward backlit situations.
