photography: out and about

_MG_0286 bc

Last night I grabbed this shot of a guy I saw from a distance. He was backlighted. I wanted to capture the essence of backlight, but still have a little illumination in his face.

I used my flash but aimed at a wall that was about 30 feet behind me. It still gave me that illumination I wanted without blowing out his face.
