Understanding Light is an important aspect for any photographer.

From feathered antennae to needle-sharp stinging hairs, many macro subjects have fine details that really come to life with a bit of backlighting. Whether from natural light or flash, understanding how to add this magic ingredient to your compositions will create drama and add definition to your macro photography.

Subjects with interesting outlines or thin, translucent features usually respond well to backlighting. Flower petals and leaves can be transformed, revealing networks of structures not normally visible.

Working with Natural Light

Sunrise and sunset are often the best times for achieving backlit macro images with natural light, as the sun is lower in the sky and has a beautiful, warm tint to it. Shooting towards your light source can create lens flare. To reduce the risk of this, use a lens hood and make sure the front element of your lens is clean and spotless. Even small smears on your front element can create large flare spots. Often the strongest, most dramatic backlighting will be achieved when the sun is almost peeping down the lens, but its disc isn’t quite in frame. 

Western Ghats at Karnataka are perfect for macro photography, as the big trees and forest cover are ideal and not harsh for photographers. It also has plenty of Macro subjects, for an interesting composition. So why wait, take that camera out and start exploring . Incredible !ndia , Incredible Karnataka.
