Contre-Jour or 'backlighting' as it is more commonly known, is the technique of shooting directly at a light source.

This can cause lens flare, rim lighting, silhouettes and the effect is not always predictable either, which adds to the fun and makes it a great technique to try out and experiment with.

Our members presented a whole spectrum of images covering all aspects mentioned above. I really liked Alberto's image you see over there on the left, the rim light makes the ball literally jump of the screen.

You can see the rest over on the gallery pages, and please leave some 'thumbs ups' and comments.

Next theme is 'Photograph a Stranger', this webpage offers some tips that may help you out.

Good luck and I'll see you all again on the 28th June.
