Shooting against the lightsource creates a lot of problems for any camera. Usual outcome is a silhouette of your subject, characteristically lacking detail. A common remedy in such cases is using a flash or a light reflector to add light where it is needed. Let's see some successful examples in your shots taken against the light! There are rules to observe, too - PLEASE read carefully before entering your work.

- "Against The Light" means shooting toward the lightsource with the input angle of the lens being greater (wider) than the angle at which the light enters that lens, i.e. where the lightsource would fit* within the frame of the picture.
- * The lightsource itself may not be visible if there is an object between it and the lens, of course. That's the "normal" way to avoid it.
