Not a trick but a nice lighting technique I just picked up. When indoors use daylight for your keylight. Backlight with an umbrella pointing down on the subject using 3200 light. The result is nice, even, reddish light cascading down the subjects head and shoulders. No problems with harsh backlight. It works even better with a cheapo dimmer (any hardware store) on the backlight.
"Sunshine Rain" by Adam Tischler suggested to shooters that they can get dimmers at their local hardware store….just a safety tip….those dimmers are only rated up to 600w.Let your readers know.
