Back Light Makes Fall Photos Glow

We're attracted by the warm reds, oranges and yellows of autumn foliage and pull out whatever camera we have with us to record the colors. You can enhance the effect of those vibrant colors by photographing them lit from behind, called back light. The sun passing through the translucent leaves makes them stand out from their surroundings and emphasizes their colors. Whether you have a cell phone camera or an advanced model, look for back light to lift your fall pictures to new heights of color.

The backlit leaves attract more attention than those without the backlight.
