#3 - Backlit

The YouTube video showed how to take a backlit photo by darkening the studio, arranging the lighting  rigs, positioning the model, and using the light meter to determine exposure settings.   

Sure, I could probably make a studio, buy all that stuff, learn to do what they said.   Or…I could just walk outside, look up into the sun through the maple trees, shoot my photo for this week and then go for a ride on the four-wheeler.  I'm thinking' four-wheeler.   Yup, definitely four-wheeler.
