Backlighting Photography with Brandon Cobb for Bassmaster

January 19, 2021  •  10 Comments

As you become a more experienced photographer, you start to take on a style. A photography style is what works for you and what sets you apart from other photographers.  My acquired style actually originated from photo-assisting product photographers back in the early 2000's.  What I didn't realize is that this style of lighting, which was coming from strobes, could be implicated in all aspects of photography, even outdoors.  Remember, when shooting anything dealing with water, whether it be a waterfall, water spray, or even fog, it has to be back-lit.  The light coming from the back highlights all the water particles.  If you shot the same subject front-lit, then everything would be flat; and you would not have any depth.  One of my most secret tips is use a circular polarizer.  And listen, DO NOT buy a cheap polarizer, you will get what you paid for; and that is me learning from experience.  These photos below were shot for Bassmaster with one of our touring pros, Brandon Cobb.
