2. Think Silhouette
Place your subject in front of you, with their back to the sun. Your subject will be backlit as though you were capturing a silhouette
3. Use Manual Mode
Your mobile phone camera will expose the scene for the total amount of light in the photo. If you follow the mobile camera’s “metering”, you will be left with a silhouette as it tries to compensate for the amount of light it captures. Shooting using the “manual mode” will enable you to overcompensate for the backlight, so your subject is perfectly lit, even with the overexposed background. Another tip would be trying your mobile phone’s flash unit, or better yet, an external unit such as the iShuttr.
