Upbeat

Today, while capturing your "upbeat" photo, play around with rim lighting!  This was MUCH easier than I had thought it would be. We did this in our dark basement where I hung a black sheet behind my subject and propped up a flashlight. Then I put my little girl in front of the flashlight and voila, I captured my upbeat girl with rim lighting!  I was pleasantly surprised to see how easy this technique can be and I can't wait to see how creative you all get with this idea today too!  My only frustration with my photo is that I didn't get as much of a profile of her face as I had imagined but, maybe next time, I'll play around with a couple (or three) flashlights to help with that lovely rim lighting behind her.
