*~ Backlighting ~*

Well, I meant to post this up Friday night, but I fell asleep early! The pet photography challenge put on by Hair of the Dog Blog for the week of August the 26th was ‘Backlighting’. I think the term is pretty self explanatory, but just in case you are unsure :) Backlighting is a technique in which a subject is lit from behind, or at right angles, to help separate the subject from the background. As an apology for being a day late, I added a couple of extras!
