White studio backlit photography is a technique used in photography where the subject is illuminated from behind by a strong light source, typically creating a glowing and ethereal effect. This technique can result in stunning and artistic images, with the subject often appearing to be surrounded by a halo of light. The light source can be natural sunlight or artificial studio lights, and it creates a bright background that can help isolate the subject and add a sense of depth to the image.
How to Achieve the White Studio Backlit Look:
1. Light Source Placement: Place the main light source (either a strong window or studio lights) behind your subject, facing towards your camera. This will cause the light to wrap around the edges of the subject, creating a glowing outline.
2. Reflectors: Depending on the effect you want to achieve, you might need to use reflectors or bounce cards to bounce some light back onto the subject’s front side. This can help balance the exposure and prevent the subject from being too dark.
3. Post-Processing: In post-processing, you can fine-tune the exposure, adjust contrast, and enhance the overall look of the image. Be careful not to over-edit, as the beauty of backlit photography often lies in its natural and dreamy quality.
How to Achieve A Great White Studio Backlit Composite:
Photograph your subject with the same sort of materials seen in the composite. For this set, sheer fabrics are pretty easy to find. You can even use window curtains, and dresses made of organza, tulle, or sheer fabric. If you have your subject on fabric, it may be easier to edit later in your composite.
