Help with Backlighting exposures
hey everyone. I am working on my new T1i and am really wanting to get good at shooting backlit shadow shots such as trees with the afternoon sun rays coming through the canopy. I am not sure which is the best way to obtain this. Obviously my feable attempts have been poor. What you end up with is the common under/over exposed situation where the tree shadows are pitch black and the sunlight is exposed for or the sun is over exposed/blown out.
Assuming you do not have a external flash, which I do not, what is best way to work this type of situation? How does one meter and then lock exposure? i am thinking that if i meter off another portion of the shot, lock exposure then recompose it might work?
All hints and tips are appreciated!! Thanks you guys
