Backlighting is a lighting technique where the main light source is behind the subject, shining towards the camera. This creates a rim of light around the edges of the subject, emphasizing their shape and creating a sense of depth in the image. Backlighting can also create a silhouette effect if the subject is entirely in shadow.
