Last month we challenged the Online Photo Program Members with the tough technical challenge of backlighting – the tricky scenario of bringing MORE attention to the main subject by blasting the background with light.

But they performed! I was pleased at how the group progressed. It was a tough challenge for many but I was pleased with the results!

And Online member, Scott, sent us this comment about his experience on the program:

Loving the on-line program.  I like that it pushes me to think about how I want to capture the image before me.  At last weekend’s cyclocross race I sought out shooting locations that allowed me to blow-out the background and highlight the cyclists.  I’d say I’m feeling more involved with the picture taking process.
